November 1, 2009, from The Washington Times Visionary Republicans saw the recession as far back as 2002 and cut taxes then to end the recession of 2007. Messrs. Boehner and McConnell, their colleagues and friends in Business and Industry, and the decider, president George W. Bush, were able to predict a recession years in advance and end it by an historic tax cut and war of choice, even before the recession began. Mr. Bush, and his former mentor, Mr. Cheney, will celebrate their success at an event schedule for today at the famous Bull near Wall Street. Large pennents proudly proclaiming "Mission Accomplished" will be handed out courtesy of the Heritage Foundation and the Palin for President Committee. Gov. Palin herself will be the head speaker, scheduled to give Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney the first annual Medal of Nostrdamus. At the same time Gov Palin will provide clarity to disabuse the public of the belief that Nostradamus was French, and provided her unquestionable opinion that he was in reality an Alaskan.
