BUSH BANKRUPTED IT IN 7.75 years with a Republican Senate, Republican House & a Republican President..
Every year there was a deficit of at least 500 Billion.
Now we have tacked on a 1 Trillion dollar kicker in the last 3 weeks.
Don't think anyone can out do Mr. 666 George Walker BushJr
Mr. first MBA in the White House.
What did all his Governor's experience & 2 failed Businesses before the Presidency get us?
DOW 9400 Thats where.
Now, now, let me -- let there be no doubt. The Republican nominee, John McCain, has worn the uniform of our country with bravery and distinction, and for that we owe him our gratitude and our respect.
--Barack Obama, 8/28/08
The Navy has time in grade requirements, too. And I happened to get my promotion at every step, with an exception for my time in grade from second to first, I was given a few months waiver. At the time, promotions were given May and October each year.
My next promotion point would have been three years time in grade as first class, but I left to go to college instead, also turning down a LDO commission candidacy. If I had really wanted a commission, it would have to be as a line officer, not limited duty officer.
