It’s not that he isn’t able to do the job. It’s that HIS idea of fixing the economy is bringing America down to the level of other nations, rather than lifting them up to our level. The fatal flaw of Socialism is HUMAN NATURE! We need to dream! We need goals! We need purpose to get us out of bed in the morning and spur us on when we grow weary! Help? Yes! We all need help on occasion, but we do NOT need someone to tend our basic needs indefinitely! That’s our responsibility, not government’s!

January 3, 2007 – Democrats Take Control Two Years Before Obama

By Tim on October 31, 2011

The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009 it was actually January 3rd 2007 the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, the start of the 110th Congress.

The Democratic Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995. For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is “Bush’s Fault”, think about this:

January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress:

At the time:

  • The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
  • The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
  • The Unemployment rate was 4.6%
  • George Bush’s Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION!

    Remember the day…

    January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.

    The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?

    BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!

    Thank Congress for taking us from 13,000 DOW, 3.5 GDP and 4.6% Unemployment to this CRISIS by dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac fiasco’s!

    (BTW: Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie – starting in 2001, because it was financially risky for the U.S. economy, but no one was listening).

    And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac?

    Then Senator OBAMA.

    And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie???

    OBAMA and the Democratic Congress.

    So when someone tries to blame Bush…

    REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007…. “THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!”

    Bush may have been in the car, but the Democrats were in charge of the gas pedal, the steering wheel and they were driving. Set the record straight on Bush!

    So, as you listen to all the commercials and deceptive media from the Democrats who are now distancing themselves from their voting record and their party, remember how they didn’t listen to you when you said you didn’t want all the bailouts, you didn’t want the health care bill, you didn’t want cap and trade, you didn’t want them to continue spending money we don’t have.

    I’m not forgetting their complicity in getting us into this mess, and I’ll be marking my vote accordingly!
