    Yeah you needed to listen further. Wait who controlled the congress in 2005?
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Dubya may have been a lot of things, but he was no ideologue. Need I remind you of all the ways he wasn't?

    You want to accuse Bush of ramping up the deficit, great. He deserves it. But you can't very well accuse him of bailing out private companies (like America's favorite jobs program, GM) and being an free market ideologue.

    It took him until he had no other choice. He could have addressed the defaulting mortgages years earlier. But insisted we need to trust the free market.

    And yet Obama still has the plurality of the vote.

    Well if that is all you have to hang your hat on, enjoy.

    Well, that was what I pointed out originally.
    I think Obama has been a complete disaster. But apparantly a lot of people think he's even worse.

    It takes so little to bring you joy, I almost envy you.
