    Can I guess the legislation Bush Jr pushed through?

    Bombing on Sundays?
    Give the wealthy more tax breaks?
    Allow environmental spoilage at faster rates?
    Kill minimum wage?
    Remove SS?
    Outsource the presidency?
    Let Katrina victims wait?
    Allow corporations to outsource?
    Remove banking regulations?

    Am I close, am I?

    The bill for the Bush administration | Salon News

    "Expected shortfall of gross domestic product below normal growth path in 2009: $900 billion

    Decline in the Dow Jones Industrial Average from its decade high to its value at the close of business, Jan. 7, 2009: 5,394.83, or 38.1 percent

    Number of manufacturing jobs lost since 2000: 3.78 million

    Increase in number of unemployed workers from 2001 to 2008: 4 million, a jump of 2.7 percent in the unemployment rate

    Real median household income according to the 2000 census, adjusted for inflation: $51,804

    Real median household income as of August 2007: $50,233

    Of course, the government didn't sit idly by while our financial future was disappearing down the drain. Instead, the feds have pumped in hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars, hoping to juice lending and public spending.

    Cost of finance industry bailout: $350 billion, with another $350 pending congressional approval

    Cost of auto industry bailout: $17.4 billion, so far

    And even though there's widespread agreement among economists that the government needs to be spending a large sum of money on an economic stimulus package, it still won't look pretty on the public balance sheet.

    National debt: $10.6 trillion

    Amount of that debt owned by China: At least $800 billion

    INFRASTRUCTURE

    When that bridge in Minneapolis collapsed, killing 13 and injuring 145, we started to remember that the prosaic details of infrastructure policy matter. Nuts and bolts can mean, quite literally, life and death. And the I-35 bridge over the Mississippi is not the only American thoroughfare suffering from underfunding and neglect.
    Quantcast

    Number of bridges judged structurally deficient: 70,000.

    Number of major roads in mediocre or poor condition: Roughly one-third."

    Dillo.. This has become a pattern. Even liberals are having trouble getting behind the things Obama is doing. Since they can't defend his policies, they can only claim that someone else was worse.

    As always you wingnuts miss the point, but I guess if you got the point you wouldn't be wingnuts. Oh well.

    Bush (include Reagan and Bush Sr too) was president, still with me, well they pushed through much legislation, an illegal invasion was one item, still here? Anyway their legislation failed the nation, the working class, the national debt, the infrastructure, you name it, they failed. But legislation in and of itself isn't bad, take for instance, equal rights or voting rights, or improvements to the nation, or help for needy children, these are good things. But giving the wealthy more as the debt grows, hmm, not a good thing.

    So now to the point, you guys failed, plain and simple, no getting around it, and thus I am allowed both by my citizenship and by your bad policy to poke fun. Get it, and now have a good laugh and hide for a while dunces. If Obama fails after eight years you can speak up, till then STFU.
