The press reported the opposite and has never corrected its mistaken judgment. And the Clintonites aren't about to correct it now. On the contrary, Sperling to this day peddles the line that Bush, before he was inaugurated as president, caused the economy to weaken by "talking" it down. All Bush did, of course, was accurately describe the state of the economy at the time. That, the Clintonites noisily refuse to accept.
