George W. Bush: The Worst President In United States History
The mainstream media is trying to stuff the administration of George W. Bush--The Worst President In United States History--down the memory hole. That eight years didn't happen, according to The Villagers, and less than one year of Barack Obama has brought us to the brink of economic ruin.
Don't let it happen! Challenge anyone who tries to blame the deficit on Obama. Remind them of the tax cuts for the rich, the war in Afghanistan, the war in Iraq, the Medicare Drug "Benefit", and the TARP bailout. The war in Iraq accounts for $1.2 billion per month. That's BILLION. What is $1.2 billion times seventy-eight? The Medicare Scam cost us seven trillion, more-or-less. Now, they're telling us that every extra soldier we send into Afghanistan will cost us another million dollars. Since we've been there for eight years, extrapolate that million bucks per soldier up until today, And--don't forget--that the wars were "paid for" "off-the books."
Let's leave aside the exorbitant contracts awarded to Halliburton, Blackwater/Xe, KBR, etc. The above paragraph adds up to quite a bit of money.
The ONLY reason we're not in a declared depression right now is that the Obama stimulus package was sufficient to interpose a quarter or two of growth into what is an economic crash-dive. That's why The Villagers refer to our current plight as "The Great Recession." It's a dodge. Rest assured: This is the Second Great Depression. People don't have money. They don't have jobs. They don't have the security that most of us grew up taking for granted.
Put the blame where it lies... on George W. Bush: The Worst President In United States History.
