When the economy is down it is the presidents duty to enact legislation to stimulate and improve it. Bush has accomplished absolutely nothing in the way of improving our country's current state.

Furthermore, I tire of the 9/11 card played every time our economy is brought up. The events of September 11th DID in fact have a detrimental effect on our economy, but since that time NOTHING has been done to turn things around. After 2.5 years, there should be SOME improvement.
