    Bush is Destroying the Economy

    He and Cheney have been an absolute disaster!
    They are totally focused on war with a beaten down Dictator of a country which couldn't deliver a strike beyond its borders let alone America, and the US economy burns.

    • The Bush administration is not doing anything to destroy the economy.

      Reason:
      The Bush administration has done NOTHING.

      The economy was in the start of a decline during the waning months of the Clinton administration.

      There is an old addage: "Judge a man by what he does , not what he says"

      Bush talks a lot, but does nothing.

      Months on end about a range of subjects, but other than the words, what has changed?

      America gets the kind of leaders it deserves.
      From the ranks of corporate executives, members of Congress, to the President, the leaders come from the people, so the greed, selfishness, dishonesty gets elevated to a higher more visable level.

      Our society has tolerated getting sexually active early and getting any and all the sex it can handle, so a President getting "some on the side" in the White House should not come as a surprise.

      Deal making, having a "friend get it for you wholesale", slipping a headwaiter $20 for a good table get elevated also in the highest levels of government. So you have a President and a bunch of cronnies who have come upthe political ladder by living off connections.

      In our religious community ,we have leaders preaching from the pulpits about leading a "chaste life", but inside the parrish house, all sorts of sexual activity goes on and is tolerated and covered up by the leaders of the church.

      We have religious leaders and their teased hair, mascara full eyed wifes pleading for money to build churches the size of concert halls, and on the side building private homes and spending money on every vice known including prostitutes.

      Bush is not destroying the economy, we have destroyed it ourselves.

    • All you've been doing is spamming the message boards with your left wing bullshit! Go back to the Cisco board where you belong! Yes it is about oil,the lifeblood of our and the world's economies .If you think Saddam can't strike the U.S. just look at New York. Easy wasn't it. His regime runs hand and hand with Usama's henchmen. A nuclear device ,whether it be a "dirty bomb", suitcase bomb or even missile delivered in his hands puts us or our troops in mortal danger. A vial of smallpox or anthrax smuggled in to our country would be catostrophic. Study the facts before you shoot your puss off. Just what will it take with you meally mouthed lefties,another direct attack on us ? I'm just damned glad we no longer have Clinton in power and thankfull that we didn't end up with Gore in the Whitehouse.

    • And keep talking WAR! to control the headlines and to prevent people from looking at the failed bush economy.

      That's what it's all about.

    • bush didn't destroy this economy it was clinton who let the inflationary market by making greenspan hold down interest rates when they should have been rising THEM. now you have over price bonds and houses that double in price because of the low interest rates because everyone is refinance more than the houses are worth guess what going to happen next if not already happening people are losing their good paying jobs and who do you think is going to pay the morgages on the houses the federal government because they will all be auctioned at a reduced price. hold on to your seats because your going to experinece the ride of your lifetime. BANKRUPTCIES

      • Neither Clinton nor Bush can direct Greenspan to make an interrest rate decision. The Federal Reserve is an independent entity within the government. The only influence received is by Congress, which periodically reviews its activities and who can alter its responsibilities by statute.

        House prices do not change as a result of refinancing. Allowed amounts for refinancing is based upon the appraised value of the home. The appraisal is based upon comparing the house to selling prices of comparable size/style/aged homes in the same area. With some loan programs, you can refinance more than the value of the home however, and this does pose a risk for those who did that now that the economy is worsening.

        I'll keep out of the debate on the political responsibility of the recession. People tend to heve strong emotional beliefs on both sides of the argument, and no amount of debate is going to sway most people's opinions.
