A Bush in the White House, a country headed towards a recession...

Friday's jobs report for December, showing a much weaker than expected net gain of 18,000 jobs, added to growing fears that the U.S. economy may be headed for — or already in — a recession. Forecasters were generally looking for growth of about 70,000 jobs. The unemployment rate jumped from 4.7 to 5.0 percent, which was also higher than expected.

Have no fear, President Bush is "exploring" action in response to the slumping economy. You know, like he "explored" action on 9/11 by sitting and looking scared and "explored" action when Katrina hit by sitting and looking scared and "explored" action in Iraq by screwing it up royally.
