What hilarious irony! -- you weren't being serious ther now, were you?

I thought you were making fun -- How can the massively deficit ridden, red ink stained Federal Budget be considered a "credible governing statement?"

Yes, we know its "called the budget" and its one of the reasons W's job is at risk. He was a much easier-to-elect candidate without the past 4 years -- now, Bush is laden down with baggage. He was more or less a blank slate last time out -- now, he has a record.


I just wrote a piece on this very topic:

The Reagan Question: Are You Better Off Than Four Years Ago?

Here's how it starts:

During the 1980 presidential campaign, Ronald Reagan quickly deflated Jimmy Carter’s reelection bid with a simple question, asking the American people, “are you better off today than four years ago?” The answer, at a time of high unemployment, staggering inflation, spiraling energy prices, and hostages in Tehran, was an obvious - and devastating - no.

Now it’s George Bush’s turn to face the Reagan question. And as with Jimmy Carter, the verdict from the American people won’t be kind: the numbers speak for themselves...

Yes, we were promised the agenda for the second term some time ago, but none has appeared. Given the lack of policymaking apparatus in the WH, I guess there isn't going to be one.

"[Today] we have a credible governing statement; it's called the budget."

The word he was looking for was "credulable" - you can believe it if you really work hard at trying to.


What else do you expect from this bunch of dangerous cretins? To them, saying it out loud makes it so. They also think the Iraq invasion is going swimmingly, and the only reason why the people there didn't bombard us with flowers is because we had to bombard their flower shops.
Up is down
Left is right
White is black...ah, what the hell.
