Olbermann: 8 Years in 8 Minutes

Keith says it all....

The ONLY thing I find fault with it is his assertion that we shouldn't blame Clinton for the 01 recession. Sorry Keith but you are DEAD WRONG on that! The groundwork for the 01 recession started in 1998 when companies began announcing layoffs that wouldn't start taking effect until 2000 or 2001. In fact in 2000 I made an open wager that depending on who got elected President, the media would not say the dreaded "R-word" (Recession) for months if Al Gore won, or just a few minutes if George Bush won. I would not be able to make that kind of a wager if this recession did not happen under Clinton's watch.

My record is intact on that. Bush barely got off the podium on Inauguration day when ABC News talked about the "looming recession".

By the way, my record for predicting economic problems is also undefeated. 3-0 for predicting economic trouble, as opposed to 0-3 for the government's so-called "experts".
