Another going away gift from our ex president Bush,I can imagine his confidence Index is high, knowing he won't have to face the disaster that he has left for Obama to straighten out.

You apparently believe that George Bush caused a world wide recession. That would make him the most powerful human in the history of the universe. The news media has more control over consumer confidence than anyone else. They screamed every problem from the rooftops to swing the presidential election and now they can't get their own exaggerated panic attack back under control. Seems like the media conveniently ignored that we had a Democratic Congress in control of all legislation and spending bills for the last two years. Two years ago the economy was the strongest ever. Now, it's in the toilet. It's up to Congress to fix it but they can't. They're too busy passing bills about abortion and gas mileage and TV signal conversion and stopping the middle class from tax deferring their 401k accounts to work on the economy.

And he is straightening it out by preparing to sign a bill that earmarks 5 billion dollars for ACORN.

You're talking about the government, one of the most fiscally irresponsible entities known to mankind. Think of the government as the personification of a person who has lost his job, is losing his home, yet still goes out and buys a shiny new flat screen television... on credit.

Uh, you probably believe Jimmy Carter caused the late 70's recession, high interest rates and the Iranian hostage crisis, because he was the most powerful human in history at the time.

Um, president of the sole superpower, the USA?
Leader of the free world?

The Contract With America Congress, led by Newt Gingrich; along with GW Bush, forced through a major deregulation of banking, credit, financial, and corporate markets; and then did not enforce the few regulations left.

Consumer confidence is a function of paychecks, not the mass media. And both have shrunken.

In the last two years, a vetoing president and veto upholding GOP minority still contriolled the congress. Now, starting in 2009, you have a true Democratic Party in charge to blame if they screw up.

Of course, you must still bleame the GOP for any legislation they block by filibusting.

Otherwise, the last 8 years are the plain fault of the lying neo-conservatives, who took over teh GOP, and threw out almost all of the real republicans. They, and their racist partners, the "religious-right" must accept the blame for the damage they have wrought.

But, as lying neo-conservatism is a type of superstition, rather than real political movement; they are unable to admit that their dogma is defective. So, they, and you must try to transfer blame for your screw-us to others.
Not reality, not true thought.

But, if the Democrats screw up in the next two years, you will have cause to complain.
And by screw up, I mean not work hard to clean up the mess left by the criminally incompetant Bush 'administration.'

Violating the false economic and political superstitions of the lying neo-conservatives is definately NOT screwing up.

THE HARDEST THING
I SLEEP ALL NIGHT
RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE
I LIVE TO HEAR YOUR
BREATHING, BREATHING.
THE MODERN LIFE
OPEN MY EYES
ITS NEARLY TIME
FOR LEAVING, LEAVING
I KNOW THAT IT SEEMS
LIKE ITS EASY FOR ME
OH I WISH YOU COULD FEEL
WHATS GOING ON INSIDE
ITS THE HARDEST THING I EVER HAVE TO DO
TO WALK AWAY FROM YOU, WHEN I WANNA HOLD YOU
ITS THE HARDEST THING IN EVERY SINGLE DAY
TO HAVE TO TURN AWAY, I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT
THIS IS THE HARDEST THING...
THE END OF THE DAY
IS YEARS AWAY
I CLOSE MY EYES
TO SEE YOUR FACE
THE MORE I WAIT
THE LONGER IT TAKES
IT FEELS LIKE TIME
IS STANDING STILL
WHEREVER YOU GO
WHATEVER YOU DO
I WANT YOU TO KNOW
THAT YOU ARE ON MY MIND
ITS THE HARDEST THING...
THIS IS THE HARDEST THING, JUST TO LET GO OF YOUR HEAD
ITS THE HARDEST THING, TO MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND THAT
TO LOVE YOU, TO FEEL YOU, TILL THE TIME I SEE YOU AGAIN
ITS THE HARDEST THING
THIS IS THE HARDEST THING...

Real conservatives would never have run up a 12 TRILLION National Debt.

Real conservatives care about our National Parks, trees, and seashores.

Real conseravtives don't care who does what to whom, as it is nobody's business.

Real conservatives love their country more than their dogma.

Real conseratives don't sell of their country's assets to foreigners.

Real conservatives don't use ta schemes to help open off-shore corporate HQs to ceat on taxes.

Real conseravtoves do not drag our flag through the mud and blood of torture and illegal imprisonment.

Real conseravtives sdon't whine about "liberal press" when they themselves control and dominate the press.

Real conservatives do not lie like Communists.

No fear, I respect and trust real conservatives.

They did such a bang-up job the last two years they held the majority. Your socialist president Bush was no gem, either.
