The Bush Economy

Ken at SayAnything points out the truth of the matter:

Via Lorie Byrd at Wizbang we learn what the MSM refuses to tell us: the Bush economy is fricking stellar.

Mind you, in all fairness President Bush really has little to do with this. The president’s power over the economy is routinely overstated - as if the federal government is the be all and end all of economic health in the nation.

But what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. If we are to believe that Bill Clinton belongs in the upper tier of presidential quality due to the awesomely powerful unbelievable greatness of the economy during his tenure, the same goes for Bush 43.

Oh, did I mention that the most recent unemployment figures remained at 4.5%...There was a time when this would have been considered dangerously inflationary. But now, with inflation well under control, I guess these are two more statistics the MSM wants to hide from you.

P.S. I suppose it is fair to point out that Bush’s economic stats would be even better if he didn’t have to contend with the Clinton recession when he assumed office.
