BIG surprise -- more anti-Bush drivel to divert from the Obacle. With every passing day, this pony's trick gets more and tiring.
Do you not get it? Bush is out of office and people are ready to move on. All his does is lead people to pull up the Dow's history and start comparing Republican and Democrat administrations. And then they see things like the 4-year debacle that was Jimmy Carter -- or the last two Roosevelt terms. Or the huge growth under Eisenhower and Bush I. In terms of my ability to provide for my family, that's about as useful as comparing presidential shoe sizes.
How about moving on and trying to fix today's economy, rather than trying to reinterpret economies of the past? How about doing something to secure your own place in history, versus trying to revise history to make yourself look better?
And you better do it quick, because at some point the media's gonna get tired of carrying your water for you.
Uhh...I'm not the one that's running the economy, remember? We've been over this again and again, and I don't see the need to spend another thread addressing whether Democrats or Republicans are better for the economy. Obviously, facts won't penetrate your noggin so what's the point?
As I contemplated that thought, it occurred to me that it's the perfect metaphor for the situation with the Democratic party. Every discussion over the past 8 years has devolved into the same anti-Bush froth fest. You'd think that at some point they'd move off of it, but as time goes on it looks like it has become some sort of religion for these people. Meanwhile, the economy flounders while they kneel and pray at the altar of Bush hatred.
And BTW, someone who thinks investment doesn't do much for an economy shouldn't be calling someone else "idiot" in an economic thread.
I have a friend who loves to use deer feeders that will hold like 5- 40 pound bags of feed or corn, and wants help hauling them deep into the woods where he has amazingly located the perfect spot for this 30 pound battery operated tripod that will only be there for a couple of weeks each year. My suggestion to him was to build some kind of light weight gravity feeder that could be strapped to a tree or a fence post if permenant, and this is what we came up with. I am...
