Bush Economy Fails Again

The good news is that our unborn grandchildren will have the benefit of explaining that they were able to complete their homework, but unfortunately George Bush ate it.

The Good Old Days Of Mere Economic Shambles

I went back and found this golden quote from a February 2008 Democratic debate: “Our economy is increasingly in shambles. And the families of Texas and all across America are feeling the brunt of that failing economy.” Well, that “failing economy” had a national unemployment rate of 4.8 percent. Captain Kickass’ first term will probably never see as many Americans employed as what he labeled a “failing economy.” If that was shambles, what is this? . . .

The bad news is that our social democracy has crashed and burned before it ever took off. Oh, and we and our grandchildren will have to pay for the building, burning and bungled cleanup of said social democracy which makes on par with Europe. Wasn't that the goal all along?
