You should really be reading Eschaton and Daily Kos to keep up-to-date on political matters from a progressive point of view. I have a few more reccommendations that I may add to the blogroll until November 2, but those two are a good start.
In any event, playtime is over. It’s time for GWB to stop acting like he’s been a success when he’s been a divisive, miserable failure. A war on terrorism that allows for massacres in Spain and Russia is a miserable failure. Maybe spending all your resources in Iraq hurt our position; just a thought. A net loss of a million jobs under his administration does not strengthen the case for his tax cuts, it hurts them (someone should tell the Republicans this). BTW, the definition of crazy is someone who does the same thing over and over, expecting different results. If 3 tax cuts haven’t bolstered our economy, it’s time to pick a new strategy.
Instead of the “tax and spend” label that he ascribes to John Kerry, Bush is a lousy “borrow and spend” Republican. He has all the fiscal responsibility of a 16-year-old debutante with Daddy’s credit card. We have let him get away with frivolous, wasteful and irresponsible spending yet he’s applauded for saying John Kerry would raise taxes and increase the budget. I’m sorry, Georgey, but YOU are the President residing over the largest budget deficit in our history. And your Republican predecessors we’re equally adept at running up our tab with foreign powers. Only Clinton managed a balanced budget and it seems to me that only Democrats are concerned with adequately managing federal funds. Republicans can slash programs and demagogue all they want about liberal spending, but you can’t hide from the facts.
Only the Democrats have any plans for actual financial solvency in this nation. They were the ones who last balanced our budget. Responsible individuals know that politicians should have a plan, for the economy, for winning the peace in Iraq, for uniting our nation. They’re called Democrats. Vote for them in November.
