RUSH: This blaming everything on Bush stuff, don’t forget, by this government’s own definition, the Bush recession ended in June of 2009. Now, the reason that’s important is because by June of 2009, Obama’s stimulus had yet to be implemented. It was signed into law in March. In other words, the recession ended before Obama did anything. Not one substantive Obama policy started before the recession ended. Blaming this on Bush, in a technical sense, and of course in a practical and real sense, is bogus and a nonstarter. The recession was over. By definition, we were coming out of it. And then Obama’s policies kicked in, and look what happened. We made a beeline for the gutter again.
