Yesterday, Aaron Burr… Err, I mean Dick(head) Cheney endorsed John McCain for President. This is a very unfortunate endorsement for John McCain to receive from the worst Vice President since Aaron Burr.
First, they really expected a Bush supported emergency bank bailout plan to just walk down the isles in the House. I’m sorry, but hasn’t the Bush administration been talking about the strength of the economy for the last several months? Years even? Given that they had their heads up their asses or were completely lying about the situation, why should be believe in any urgency about the bailout. Seeing as how they were completely wrong about the state of the economy for at least the last 18 months (the largest bank in the world – WAMU – doesn’t fail overnight folks), why are they suddenly right about the economy?
Then, this morning I read this article about a large slide in the manufacturing index. This should have been a no-brainer. If businesses can’t get money from their banks, they tap their other resource for capital: inventory. It’s a pretty simple business concept. Sell inventory and turn it into cash. Most businesses that sell products operate like this. Somehow, this is a foreign concept to the folks on Wall Street? Of course, in normal economic conditions businesses reinvest that revenue back into inventory. But if your bank is holding you by the gonads, you don’t buy more inventory. You keep the cash.
Good thing the fundamentals of our economy are strong.
What do the Clintons and the Bushes have in common?
Besides having been the only two families to reside in the White House for the last 20 years, they have an additional quality that is unfolding in front of our eyes.
George W. Bush lost the 2000 popular vote, and it has been argued that he even lost the electoral vote if recounts in Florida were taken into account. There are thousands of articles, blogs, etc. about how the Bush family stole the election of 2000. Heck! There was even a movie about it.
It is amazing how history is prone to repeat itself when unchecked power is at play.
How many Families have been running the United States over the last 20 years?
I’ll give you a hint: It’s more than 1 and less than 3!
Folks, the real reason to be concerned with Hillary Clinton being president has nothing to do with what her policies may or may not be. For God’s sake, the first George Bush promised “no new taxes” and that sure didn’t happen!
Plane and simple… we’ve gone from a two party political system to a two family political system: The Bushes and The Clintons! What’s the point of having a democracy when we make ourselves a monarchy? Well, I guess biarchy would be more like it?
For the past 20 years, we’ve had the same two families at the head of this country. If you want to include the power that the first George Bush had as Vice President, make it 28 years. For me, that’s almost my entire life. And there are even talks about having Bush’s brother run in 2012. Gimme a break already!
Enough is enough. No more John Adams garbage. No more Clintons. No more Ws or HWs or any other Bush for that matter. We have a democracy here. Let’s start using it!
