Letter to the Editor

People in the news media are asking why Bush doesn’t get more credit for the economy. Maybe it’s because America went from the world’s biggest surplus under Clinton to the world’s biggest deficit under Bush. Maybe it’s because Bush ran the national debt up higher than all the presidents put together. Maybe it’s because the price of gasoline has tripled while the minimum wage has stayed the same. Or maybe it’s because this president has never got anything right so why would we believe he got the economy right? The reason people don’t give Bush credit for the economy is because we just don’t believe it.

I’m so old that I remember when conservatism meant something good: Fiscal restraint, modesty and true conservation. All that changed when Bill Clinton became a better conservative than any of the neocon knuckledragging religious-extremist hypocrite Rapethuglicans in the 90’s.

The real reason why Clinton ruled and why the Rapethuglicans went crazy? “He stole their issues” is close as this was one of the many reasons. The BIIIIIIIIG reason was that he was the last great REPUBLICAN…and the Rapethuglicans have NEVER measured up since.
