Hart misplaces the blame

I write in response to a letter from Phil Hart, (“The real Democratic fun,” March 1).

I realize the economy is in the tank and may well be there for quite a long time. My confusion stems from when Hart implies that this is all because of President Barack Obama and his administration.

What was Hart reading during the years 2001 through 2008? Was he not aware that the administration of former President George W. Bush started with a surplus of dollars left to him by the previous president, Bill Clinton, and turned it into an immense deficit?

Hart, you chose to be silent while that happened. Why?

Today’s economic situation began back in 2007 during and because of the Bush presidency.

I suggest that instead of trying to blame the current president and his administration we will all be better off if you, Mr. Hart, direct your energy to try and find a way into a better stronger economy and then tell us about your discovery.
