"A republican ruins the economy"
You mean not long after the Nancy and Harry Show took over in Jan 2007?
Typical Fox News-type distortion.
The US economy was already tanking in 2007. A new incoming Congress can't write a new budget until the next year. By 2008 the economy was in full meltdown.
The huge US economy is like an ocean liner - it's takes a long time to reverse course and turn it around. It can't change overnight. But that doesn't seem to bother you guys. Just a few months after Obama took office it was him you Republicans were blaming for the economic mess.
All the while the Party of No was using every Congressional trick in the book to block Obama and Democrats at every turn. Their stated goal was to make Obama fail at all costs, including delaying the economic recovery.
Your only real rule is that no matter what the facts are, always blame the Democrats. And I'll admit it's a pretty good strategy, given how uninformed US voters are.
