"Why should we hear about body bags and deaths and how many, what day it's gonna happen? It's not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?" --Barbara Bush
We invaded Iraq. We botched the peace. How does that make it France and Germany's responsibility to fix our mess?
So much for the Republican myth about personal responsibility.
The start of the battle at An Nasiriyah [southbendtribune.com]: "Screams pierced the smoke: 'We got a man down! We got a man down!'"
$87 billion. How much research & development of alternative energy would that buy us? If the government ordered $87 billion of solar energy cells, what would the cost drop to as production became *massive*?
"I want to kill him. I want his intestines on a stick. ... I want to kill his dog." --Mel Gibson
It *may* be that the economy improves a little, even enough for people to notice.
But the huge deficit spending that Bush has built into our economy for the forseeable future is too big a weight. We need to fix that -- like Clinton did for the Reagan/Bush deficits -- before the economy as a whole will recover.
Bush's catastrophic failure is a tragedy. This is the exact point when Clinton's policiies should have paid off with increasing prosperity that would let us solve key problems -- like the AIDS epidemic and global warming -- while raising standards of living. Instead, Bush destroyed trillions of dollars of wealth, just to give a tiny fraction of that to his cronies. His cronies would have done better under prosperity.
