Bush Economic Success

by Dick Mac

Did you know that George W Bush inherited a recession in January, 2001, and he is leaving office in a recession, but everything in-between was seemnigly OK.

There were over 500,000 created during the housing boom that is the cornerstone of Bush's economic miracle. Since the collapse of that house of cards, however, more than 2,600,000 jobs have been lost (the most since WWII).

Bush did inherit a huge tax surplus, which must have been a terrible burden to him. He decided to make our nation a better place, and squandered this money by issuing tax cuts to the wealthy. How's that working for you?

Rachel Maddow had a field day with yesterday's Bush press conference (essentially his last as President), in a series titled "Lame Duck Watch Special Report." Here is an excerpt about the Bush Economic Successes.

My favorite part of her show last night was her repeated use of the word "quackatude," which I think sums up the current American President's mental condition quite accurately.

George W Bush and his buddies destroyed America. The Bush legacy will not be complete until he or his buddies are imprisoned or hanged for treason.

I'm totally with this. Does any normal human being see the world this way?

Have we ever had an administration where higher level officials can never leave the United States for fear of being picked up and taken to International Court?

I'd love to (but won't) create a web page that tracks the scum of this administration throughout their careers so that we can boycott the companies that hire the scum.

I'm very bitter.

I L-O-V-E Rachel Maddow!

If I weren't such a total fag and she were any less perfect a dyke I would definitely bear her children...

In case you missed it you should go back and catch her appearance on the Daily Show from last week. Jon Stewart starts out by comparing the talking heads at MSNBC - where her show airs - to The Munsters. She's Marilyn, of course.
