Bush Had The Weakest Economy In 70 Years

• George W Bush had the worst job creation record since data collection began 70 years ago

• Most economic activity happened in the unsustainable housing and financial bubbles, amounting to what many economists call a ‘Lost Decade.’

• The government was running a surplus when Bush took office, but was soon running deficits that were partially fed by the tax cuts of 2001 and 2003.
