Look closer. Think harder. Choose the sound argument over the clever one.

The economy Bush inherited

How much control does a President have over the economy? Though he has some influence, I don't think it's clear. Assuming a president has some influence, consider this picture...

This picture is worth a thousand words. The big bump is the Nasdaq rise and fall. As the Nasdaq falls in March, 2000, the S&P levels off and starts to fall.

President Clinton, a Rhodes Scholar, had eight years to prevent the Nasdaq crash. But he didn't.

March, 2000, was during Clinton's administration.

Note that 9/11 did have an effect on the economy.
