Let's assume for a moment that all you "Bush Blamers" are right...I know you think you are, so we'll go with that for the sake of this argument....
Do you feel that, today, the initiatives that BHO has instituted (not information regurgitated New York Times articles or blogs authored by leftist liberals, but REAL initiatives) have begun to "undo" what Bush 43 "did?" Don't wax philosophic or give him credit for the natural progression of downturns and upturns...TALK FACTS...and if you want to be credible, include both the good and the bad.
The "floor" is yours....

Who ran FM an FMay? Democrats(Remember Raines)
Who kept interest rates too low that made the derivatives attractive investments? The Fed
Who spent too much money on the Farm Bill and Medacare Bills? The House(who does all appropriations) and Bush signed it.
What were the specific policies Bush implemented that ruined the economy?
The move to deregulate financial markets began under Reagan, continued under Clinton, and continued further under Bush. Even the disastrous collapse of the savings and loan industry and the collapse of many pension funds under Reagan was not enough to deter financial market deregulation. Some of that deregulation was desirable. Things can and did go too far. The structure of our markets rewards short term gain while largely ignoring long term risk. We have proven repeatedly over the last 70+ years that regulations are needed to force financial markets to manage long term risks more appropriately.
