You can lie & make up sh*t all you want but this is the truth.

Giving it back.

How would you know being at a Fudge Party throughout it all.

The failures down there were with governor, mayors, police and inept Federal Departments. Heck, even Red Cross Supply Trucks were found abandoned along states between the East Coast and Louisiana - empty and the drives missing.

And here comes little ol' Yeah heel biting and Bush-Bashing again.

You latch on to Leftist propaganda like flies on sh it.

Not really.

Instead of just assuming an inflation rate of 3%, for example, run the study at rates ranging from 0% to 7%, for example, so that the range of results can be understood.

Otherwise, you can assume the variables you want to prove your preconceptions.

Notice how government programs & policies always need "reform"? And the "reform" always requires more government?

the Bush economy was horrible before 2006. plenty of evidence to back that up. wanna see it?
and how about Bush wanting people who had bad credit histories to have a home? and why is that every time i point that out, you seem to forget it 10 minutes later?
Again, read and learn.

Wall Street Journal

Democrats like to claim the 1990s were a golden age while the Bush years were disastrous. But Bush inherited a recession, the dot-com bubble had burst in 2000, and the economy was sinking even before the shock of 9/11.

By late 2002, the economy was struggling which is when Bush proposed his second round of tax cuts. The tax rate reductions were immediate and included cuts in capital gains and dividends designed to spur business incentives. AS THE TAX CUTS BECAME LAW IN LATE MAY 2003, THE RECOVERY BEGAN IN EARNEST.

Growth averaged nearly 4% over the next three years, the jobless rate fell from 6.3% in June 2003 to 4.4% in October 2006, and real wages began to grow despite rising food and energy prices. The 2003 tax cut was the high point of Bush economic policy.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1232153277874...

Yes, Bush made some mistakes in spending too. But he did more things right than wrong in the wake of 9/11.

He would probably be doing a better job than this president if given one more term.

Where does Dave think the CBO gets their data from with purposed bills?

For example the immigration bill projects x number of illegals which will find gainful employment and will pay x amount of taxes.

This data is not available from any government agency so it uses what is provided to it by the person submitting the data for calculation.

No, it uses the figures provide by the politician asking for the report.
The CBO does not, cannot, question the accuracy of the information given to it by the politicians.
Their purpose is to analysis what is given to them without commentary.
Politicians may request reports based on certain constraints or concepts.

In 2001, they predicted that our debt would be non-existent today based on the revenue & spending at that time.

Then Bush was elected.

A new biography of President Eisenhower you might find interesting.
Shows the frustrations of being president in the 1950s when the press was rather restrained.

I thought it was the funniest story of the day. 12 hour flight from hell-no alcohol for the Presstitutes, because it is a dry flight, and according to Cuba law, they have to stay three days. ROTFLMAO.
