Not so fast with the data points!  We still have the December job reports due out today and it's predicted to be the worst in 34 years!.

But look on the bright side we have added several new words to the English language thanks to George.  I would site some examples, but I can't even begin to decide how to spell them.

Woods - That would be Bushism's you're thinking of... couple of examples

'Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream.'

'I know how hard it is for you to put food on your family.'

'They misunderestimated me.'

'Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?'

"Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB-GYNs aren't able to practice their love with women all across this country."

There's dozens and dozens of examples.

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly,
Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile.

I don't care what you all say, if it wasn't for him America would not know "how low it can go."  He succeeded in running the country and the world into the ground.  History will attest that he was the most successful in destroying the ecomonies east, west, north and south of the equator.  Who knew that one man can affect so much of the world.

He presided over the largest transfer of wealth in history.  $350 billion just went to financial institutes who can't (or won't) tell us what is being done with it.  Close to a trillion dollars for a war to find imaginary weapons of mass distruction so that Halliburton, KGB, and Blackwater could make a fortune. I could go on and on but you get the idea.

I'm and Independent.........I Think the GOP and the DEMS are all a bunch of CROOKS, it's the 2 party system we need to get rid of, or we need a larger Independent Party, so, that the GOP and the DEMS
whoever gets the house and the senate won't just do things for themselves , and there is the (Special interest lobbyist in Washington, that has way too much power and influence, only for themselves) , this is only part of the problem. I could go on and on here , without a bi-partisan Govt. were all dead-in-the-water, and NOTHING gets done, it's a vicious cycle that never ends........ I think you get the idea.........

If absolute power corrupts absolutely, or atleast partially, it also pays well and makes you infamous.
