Re: Liberals are to blame for our crashing economy

I was bemused to read a recent letter in The Union that said, “The actions of the Liberal Democrats are destroying our economy.”

I recollect that from 1995 to 2007, Congress, which initiates borrowing, spending and economic policies, was in the hands of the Republicans. Also, for the past eight years, the presidency, which approves and carries out the borrowing, spending and economic policies, has been occupied by a Republican.

I believe that the letter writer is confused. However, Barack Obama and John McCain have it right; they are both running against the Republicans.
