Question by Chewy Ivan 2: How long until former presidents become responsible for the US economy again?
Conservatives blamed the economic collapse of 2008 on President Clinton, seven and a half years after he left office. Yet only a year and a half out of office, they claim President Bush is no longer responsible for the economy. When will President Bush become at least partly responsible for the economy again?
For Jaker: The Republicans controlled Congress from January 1995 to January 2007, less than a year before the last recession began. Is it really a Democrat-controlled Congress that caused all the problems?
Answer by jaker
They cite things Clinton did as encouraging the housing bubble but he is by no means totally responsible for what the Congress did after he left office. Bush happened to be in office when that bubble burst and he is really no more responsible than Clinton. The real blame rests with the dem controlled Congress.
