Letter to the Editor
People in the news media are asking why Bush doesn’t get more credit for the economy. Maybe it’s because America went from the world’s biggest surplus under Clinton to the world’s biggest deficit under Bush. Maybe it’s because Bush ran the national debt up higher than all the presidents put together. Maybe it’s because the price of gasoline has tripled while the minimum wage has stayed the same. Or maybe it’s because this president has never got anything right so why would we believe he got the economy right? The reason people don’t give Bush credit for the economy is because we just don’t believe it.
