"Yes, the Wall Street Journal, arbiter of frank and factual analysis, neglected to include George W. Bush in their charts of the success of other recent Presidents. One can only wonder why.."Well, if you read the WSJ rather than the left wing blog that references it, you'd see why Bush was left out of the chart."For each of the last three two-term Presidents, the economy went a long way to determining success or failure. George W. Bush's eight years ended in an economic panic that ruined his legacy. But note in the nearby table the tales of the Reagan and Clinton second terms. In the Gipper's last four years, GDP growth averaged 3.73% a year. In Bill Clinton's last four years, the economy averaged 4.45% growth."Oh golly?
