I can only relate and make a comparison, from a personal economic stand point. I built and grew two businesses during the Clinton years and they
prospered beyond my wildest imagination.
During the Bush years I watched the two businesses decline due to the increase of fuel prices that kicked the profit out of my already small margin.
People have much less discretionary income and that directly affects my businesses. I will be forced to layoff my 6 employees and shut the doors next
week. I hope The Presidents oil buddies are happy.
Now I'm much less concerned with terrorism as I am with paying my health insurance, grocery bill, fuel bill, mortgage, car payment and Visa.
