    Would be very hard...5-6 million is possible, while 7-8 is doable with a lot of hard work and good policies. I think Bush made about 5 million if I remember.(Before he losted a crap load of them of course)

    You have to wonder is there some gene in republicans when out of power that causes them to say the dumbest things? Bush Jr reduced taxes, allow me to repeat that, Bush Jr reduced taxes and do you know where that got us? it has to be genetic, no one is this dumb. Reagan raised taxes, Clinton raised taxes, FDR raised taxes - those were better times.

    "In terms of promoting economic growth, the Bush tax cuts have been a miserable failure. Under George W. Bush, U.S. GDP growth averaged 2.1 percent a year. Since the end of World War II, the country has never experienced such low economic growth during an eight-year period. And if you exclude the war demobilization of 1946, when U.S. government spending fell by two-thirds and GDP fell by 10.9 percent, Bush had the worst economic record since Herbert Hoover."

    The tax changes didn’t do much for Vermont, either. Job growth so far this decade is worse than any decade since the 1940s. We have fewer jobs today than we had in 2000."

    Spending Cuts Vs. Tax Increases at the State Level, 10/30/01
    Do tax cuts ever "pay for themselves"? Rarely. - By Annie Lowrey - Slate Magazine
    Voodoo Economics Revisited - Simon Johnson - Project Syndicate


    "There is no historical evidence that tax cuts spur economic growth. The highest period of growth in U.S. history (1933-1973) also saw its highest tax rates on the rich: 70 to 91 percent. During this period, the general tax rate climbed as well, but it reached a plateau in 1969, and growth slowed down five years later. Almost all rich nations have higher general taxes than the U.S., and they are growing faster as well." Tax cuts spur economic growth

    I found this quite interesting from the link:

    That reads like there is already a projected growth and all the next Prez has to do is expound on it slightly to reach that goal.
