Comparison? - Let Us Watch.......In late 1999 the dot-com bubble was bursting, and the economy was headed toward the tank. George Bush had been elected but was still serving in the "office" of Vice-President-Elect.
Magically, once the new President was sworn in he was suddenly responsible for the tanked economy....even though he had not been in-charge or even involved in the U.S. Government operations at that point. I know this because my Democrat friends told me it was so.
Should be interesting to see their take on Obama as he is sworn in and his position vis-a-vis the economy which is tanking. Wanna bet it will be all Bush's fault for at least the 1st 4 years of Obama's time?
I guaranty it will be so!
It is all in whose horse is running.
