The Conservative Calamity of the 2000s ends here

Oh, why couldn’t we have had Al Gore? Clinton, while being caught with his pants down, was one of the best presidents we have ever had. The guy was great across the board: internationally and domestically. He handed off America in pristine condition.

George W. Bush was just a guy you wanted to have a beer with (despite him most likely declining the offer because he claimed to be a recovering alcoholic) until the terrorists attacked New York City and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Then it all went to sh*t, as we wasted time, money and resources chasing a bad guy that didn’t exist, because al Qaeda never was in Iraq until we got there.

Behind the scenes the Bush S.E.C.

They OK’d Subprime, Madoff, AIG

Great Recession wasn’t Bill Clinton

He cashed out $300 billion

Bush spent it all and more out the a$$

Tax Cuts for the rich, no-bid contracts

And y’all, guess what else got cut?

Health Care for the soldier and his wounded gut

Why did Bush claim God on his side?

You know he drove the Devil’s ride on the sly

Good ol’ boy, why would he care?

He back in Texas and still a millionaire

* Just remember, if you vote Republican you are voting for the Party that receives a large portion of its contributions from Karl Rove’s fund-raising organizations. The same Karl Rove that split from the Bush White House after US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald started asking questions about the leaked identity of a CIA agent, Valerie Plame, wife to US Ambassador, Joe Wilson, who wrote a nice, little Op-Ed in the New York Times (after being blown off by everyone in the Executive Branch) about how there were no Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq. His words ran in the newspaper three months after we invaded. Boy, were the Bushies pissed! They even ratted out a fellow American, an undercover agent in the CIA. She lost her career and others with whom she worked could have lost their lives.

I’m not saying all Republicans are bad people. I’m saying these Republicans taking money from Karl Rove, these Republicans are bad people. Do not vote for them. If you do, you’re digging your own grave. What’s good for America is putting people back to work rebuilding this country by installing solar electricity and building hybrid cars. We should pay our teachers more by reducing our gargantuan Defense Budget. We do not need to spend more on missiles and bomber planes than the rest of the world combined. Let’s put our money toward protecting ourselves and supporting life after the womb, here at home and around the world.

The Democrats are cleaning up the messes left behind by the Republicans. The Republicans have not lifted a finger so far to help clean up their own mess. Those conservative guys in the suits just sat on the sidelines and watched the Democrats do all the heavy lifting. The Conservative Calamity of the 2000s ends here. Don’t let the good-for-nothing bums back in office. Time for the Republican Party to redefine itself. ‘Cause “protectors of the status-quo rich” just ain’t cool anymore.

“[Tim] Russert brought up the accusations about economic problems under President Bush with this question:

The Bush-Cheney first three years, the unemployment rate has gone up 33%. There’s been a loss of 2.2 million jobs. We’ve gone from a $281 billion surplus to a $521 billion deficit. The debt has gone from $5.7 Trillion to $7 Trillion, or is up 23%. Based on that record, why should the American People rehire you as CEO?”
