who will vote accordingly, as if the economy can be fixed by any given president on scheduale -- when the truth is, no president is ultimately accountable.
Bush 41's economy, for example, had turned the corner but the voters didnt believe him. They didnt see evidence of it, so they voted against him. Fortunately for Clinton, the economy had turn around before he took office, and kept growing almost to the end of his second term. Fortunately for Bush 43, the recession began very early in his term, so voters will be much more likely to re-elect him. Its unfortunate, but thats the way it is...not that Im unhappy with Bush getting a second term, dont get me wrong.
