No, not domestically -since those 2.2 million jobs since 2000 is a fraction of the job growth spurred consistently by the policies of the previous
Unemployment is down by 3/10ths of a percentage point on average, but is a convenient statistic manufactured by this administration. Tell me,
Bushman in a Transformer suit, someone whose been out of work so long that their unemployment has run out and the benefits extension has run out....is
still unemployed, right? Those folks ( in the millions ) drop off from the tabulation of the unemployment statistics!!
Factiories operating at 20 year highs are because of the ROI I mentioned before - American workers, white & blue collar, are working on teams
where someone leaves or is reduced - that headcount isn't replaced - the additional workload is spread amongst the remaining. Hey, I'm guilty of
that, but we did give people high reviews and 3.5% pay raises pretty good for my market.
Big deal, Huessin is gone. He wasn't a threat to America before, so why the unwarranted enthusiasm & false sense of security now? Osama is either
dead or has been in custody getting well so he can be properly displayed in the trophy case.
Al Qeda was never a cohesive well oiled army, the way you've been lead to believe. SO them being in dissarray is no great accomplishment - but
that's even admitting that they are. I just think the tic dug deeper, that's all. Islamic Fundie terrorists are less concerned by the team colors -
you don't think they're affiliated to more than one faction? You think a team comprised of those willing to comitt suicide is turning volunteers
"Bush may not go down in history as the best president" - what was your first clue on that one Skippy?!?!
Look, it has nothing to do with ideology - if you've followed my posts & my supporting data, as well as the political compass quiz, I would be
categorized as a Libertarian if you needed to pigeon hole me, I think money is an aphrodisiac, and I believe in battering to a blood pulp my business
competitors. Hardly the polar extreme you're probably painting in your minds eye of where my "LIberal" roots are.
I'm anti-Bush because his policies make no economic sense, he inherited an economy that was at a plateau after historic growth & turned it into a
mild recession to support HIS TAX CUT IDEOLOGY. That depened the recession and has not made a robust Amreican Economy. Remember those in the
Clinton era? Companies numbers were up AND millions of jobs were created. No jobs = failed policy. All corporation making great profits is great, but
until it translates into a reversal of the job loss & unemployment figures, you only have the makings for a Caste System society.
Miserable failure in all areas - Yes.
Proven Leader? No
