Did I say Bush? I said the GOP. History bears that out. Want a good economy and low unemployment you choose the Democrats. Want debt, war and bad times yo choose the GOP. Try reading some ACTUAL history sometime and you'd learn that.

So the debt under Obama is somehow the GOP's fault? Please.

That being said, overall on economics issues I'd say there really have been few Presidential administrations that "got" both micro- and macroeconomic issues, and, in the post-WWII era, only one from each party (JFK for the Dems, Reagan for the GOP). Each party has also had two guys good on one but not the other (Carter was great on micro issues to the point where he was possibly the most relentless deregulatory President we've ever had, Clinton was good on macro issues, Bush Jr. was good on micro issues, and Eisenhower was good on macro issues), and the rest... well, they were at best mediocre on both.

Overall, the GOP platform has typically (but not always) been better from an economic standpoint, but the fact that pretty much every President has gone and ignored their party's platform except when convenient means that we can't really use governing philosophy as a proxy for actual political performance.
