Blame Clinton, not Bush

This is in response to Bonnie Erbe's article "Americans Ought To Be Furious About the Economy" on Sunday, March 9. She describes how badly our economy has deteriorated, then points a finger at President Bush.

However, there is one fact she did not care to research. How well a president handles the economy makes itself apparent around four years later. We do not know how well President Bush is doing. Bill Clinton is the one to blame for the current slump.

Clinton's purposeful ignorance of Saddam Hussein and the rising terrorist threat that led to Sept. 11 is another reason the economy has slumped. Yes, Americans should be furious. But please direct your anger where it's due.
