Good post, Slank.
As did FredT, no matter how big the blunder or how much money it costs the American citizens, many of whom can't find a job these days, and no matter how many American lives are sacrificed as a result of his thoughtless actions, every good zombie, I mean "Bush Republican", will find a way to rationalize anything George Dubya does, and will vehemently support it. No matter how big of a blunder!
It's unbelieveable. America has indeed gone mad!!

Republican does not equate to Bush. Or shouldn't.

Corporations have been setting up their headquarters outside of the United States for decades; this is nothing new and certainly not instituted by any of Bushes policies. The problem was exacerbated during the Clinton years when the government decided to create a kind and friendly IRS in which they drastically cut staff making it easier for Corporations to cheat on there taxes.
