One thing I'm wondering: Is there any way to really stick it to the big investors who got us into this mess in the first place without taking down ordinary prudent personal investors like myself? No? I didn't think so, but I thought I'd ask.
But all is not lost! Really! There is good news in this! It is this: We have been handed ANOTHER bad thing we can blame on George Bush. Let's see how that list is shaping up:
1 major terrorist attackDo you feel safer than you did eight years ago? More financially secure? Prouder to be an American? REALLY? What I'm saying is THIS IS NOT A COINCIDENCE.
2 unsuccessful wars
1 badly responded to hurricane
1 nasty Department of Justice scandal
1 democracy undermined
Civil rights eroded
Failed banks? Stay tuned—still counting!
Jobs lost? Families without health insurance? Homes in foreclosure? Too many to count, and just too many.
Do I really think these things are all his fault? YES, I DO. They are all the results of his administration's policies. He's reminded us repeatedly that he's the leader. And so he is.
But not for much longer!
So here's to the more nails in the coffin of Bush's legacy. Sometimes it's important not to be gracious. He has nearly ruined this country and everything it stands for. But if we can learn and change, we can go forward.
Are you coming?
