Oh, I geddit!

When the Bush administration spent eight years waterboarding our economy, I thought they hadn’t a clue about what they’re doing.  No!  That is incorrect, because look at what’s resulted from the Great Recession!

Still, others warn that the figures point not to economic recovery but merely to the end of months of outright panic … The WSJ uncovers perhaps the bleakest data-nugget of all: According to the Mexican government, more Mexicans left the United States last year than entered. Economists say that immigrants who once saw America as a land of opportunity are now returning home in droves, reversing global migration flows for the first time since the Great Depression.

Seeeeeee?  Bush’s tax cuts and subsequent underfunding of everything, while turning a blind eye on corporate and banking regulations, wasn’t bad after all.  Bush stopped the invasion of Spanish speakers across America!  Hooray!  The plan to make our economy suck so much that it can’t attract workers has succeeded!  And when I’m forced to teach English in South Korea next year just to get a paycheck, let me tell ya, I’ll keep Bush’s economic prudence leading the national pride front and center in my thoughts!

  1. “No, you don’t Geddit”. Firstly, in case you still had your diapers on during the last 8 years let me remind you that Bush led the charge towards Amnesty. Most Americans are tired of the illegal flood from Mexico though. If they ever got their act together down there Mexico could be a prosperous nation on its own. Next, although Bush did cut taxes somehow Revenue to the Treasury INCREASED, didn’t it? Yes, it did. Consider how that is possible tas. So tax cuts worked again (increased revenue) as they did for JFK, Reagan, even Clinton (Cap. Gains). Only those whose minds are clouded by an agenda, think high tax rates are somehow good for the economy or good for the average Joe. Tax cuts worked, the evidence and numbers are obvious …impossible for any logical person to ignore. Spending is the problem. Although revenue/spending increased you still bitch about “underfunding of everything”. What a dope. Tell me tas which program was cut or received less funding than the previous year?? Government at all levels (Fed, State, Local) spent more money then we have every year, more money then ever each year. So if your favorite program is underfunded, well, overall government spending is not the problem.

    No doubt Federal Regulators and their Congressional enablers were asleep at the wheel .. or getting paid off somehow. Bush’s economic policy made for a great economy 6 of 8 years, including 9/11. Government overspending has reached unthinkable levels under Obama. How will this ever get paid back?? Inflation?? Criminal actions in the Financial Markets around the World caused this Recession (AIG, Freddie/Fannie, Credit Default Swaps, Sarbanes/Oxley, high oil prices, etc.).

    Hahahahahahaha.. That’s funny.

    Because the revenue flow is so great right now!

    Only those whose minds are clouded by an agenda, think high tax rates are somehow good for the economy or good for the average Joe. Tax cuts worked, the evidence and numbers are obvious …

    We’ve been launched into what’s possibly the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, and you’re telling me the tax cuts worked? Excuse me.. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That’s funny.

    …why even bother reading the rest of your comment?

  3. Obviously your feeble mind has been focused on Arabic, it has no capacity left to honestly evaluate today’s economic situation. Look, we probably agree on all the causes of this Recession except Bush’s tax cut way back in 2001. Revenue flow is now down because people have lost their jobs (how can this be linked to 2001 tax cuts?). Yet, most all States, Localities, and the Feds are STILL increasing spending!! How irresponsible, don’t you think? Can you explain how a modest income tax cut (-3%) at the Federal Level back in 2001 has led to an across the board (Global) recession today??

    We are already overtaxed, GDP/Revenue maximizes at a tax rate lower than current levels. That’s why tax cuts miraculously increase revenue and help the economy. It’s simple economics 101. How is having less money good for you?? How are high taxes good for Jobs/Job Growth? 9/11 put a damper on the economy, other than that year Gov. Revenue has increased every year after Bush’s tax cut.
