The Bush War and Economy

FAIR refutes the Bush administration claim that W. has presided over an economy that would be the envy of any president, but he can't get credit for it because of the War on Iraq.

Here is the record of economic growth for each administration since 1960:

  • Kennedy-Johnson -- 5.2%
    Nixon-Ford -- 2.7%
    Carter -- 3.4%
    Reagan -- 3.4%
    Bush I --1.9%
    Clinton -- 3.6%
    Bush II --2.6%
