    Good article!

    I think that everyone should take a minute or so and read it.

    Then I think that everyone who voted for Bush should apologize for having done so.

    Then as a final jesture of true patriotism, everyone that voted for Bush should promise never to discuss politics or vote again.

    It certainly would be the best thing for this country and the rest of the world.

    President Bush, a failure in domestic and foriegn policy, the most incompetant President in the history of this nation.

    Closing The Book On The Bush Legacy - Politics - The Atlantic

    The number of children in poverty plummeted from 15.3 million when H.W. Bush left office in 1992 to 11.6 million when Clinton stepped down in 2000-a stunning decline of 24 per cent. (That was partly because welfare reform forced single mothers into the workforce at the precise moment they could take advantage of a growing economy. The percentage of female-headed households in poverty stunningly dropped from 39 per cent in 1992 to 28.5 per cent in 2000, still the lowest level for that group the Census has ever recorded. That number has now drifted back up to over 31 per cent.) The number of Americans without health insurance remained essentially stable during Clinton's tenure, declining from 38.6 million when the elder Bush stepped down in 1992 to 38.4 million in 2000.


    Looking at the trends by shares of the population, rather than absolute numbers, reinforces the story: The overall poverty rate and the poverty rate among children both declined sharply under Clinton, and the share of Americans without health insurance fell more modestly.


    So the summary page on the economic experience of average Americans under the past two presidents would look like this:
    Under Clinton, the median income increased 14 per cent. Under Bush it declined 4.2 per cent.


    Under Clinton the total number of Americans in poverty declined 16.9 per cent; under Bush it increased 26.1 per cent.



    Under Clinton the number of children in poverty declined 24.2 per cent; under Bush it increased by 21.4 per cent.


    Under Clinton, the number of Americans without health insurance, remained essentially even (down six-tenths of one per cent); under Bush it increased by 20.6 per cent.

    The last time I checked, and with all due respect. There is no school out there that someone can go to in order to learn on how to be a Vice President let alone to be President. So that quote is moot point.

    The blaming won't stop until the "anointed one" actually does something. So far since Mr. Obama has taken office the nat'l debt has ballooned to over 13 trillion dollars with 30% (or more by now) subsidize by the Chinese. Anyone can look up the debt year by year at the CBO website, or go to Conservative Policy Research and Analysis | The Heritage Foundation for futher information.

    Considering Congress controls spending, I wouldn't put too much stock into this report. However, Bush did start a war in Iraq and there was a lot of deficit spending, so I don't plan on voting for any Republicans. What's probably worse is that Obama is making the same mistakes as Bush. He's like Bush-III.

    Here's a more accurate chart:
