Remember when the economy used to be strong back in the Clinton era?
Well, here's what it looks like now.
Thanks, BushCo.

When the chimpster got to the part of his speech last night where he listed all the horrible things that will happen if we don't pass his godawful bill, I thought "And these people hated Jimmy Carter for high interest rates?"

Hey, after all the evil that the peanut man has done since he's left office, he's worthy of hate, no?

Imagine if HE had been driving that car!

I thought the whole thing smacked of the smoking gun mushroom cloud, weapons of mass destruction and any other pumped up crisis.

Why did they wait this long? How do you go from "we're strong, all is well" to "grab a bucket!!!!!"

I can't help but wonder - we're already financial fucked. How bad can it actually get? But that's just selfish of me, isn't it?

I agree with dcup on the mushroom cloud and wmd thing.
But since those things don't scare us much anymore, I was almost disappointed that they didn't coin a new image or term to scare the beejeebers out of us so we'd beg them to take our $700 billion. The problem is they've hornswoggled us too many times with those images/terms we've been desensitized.

If he really wants to clean out our piggy banks before he leaves, Bush needs to come up with some fresh scary talk to keep us up at night worrying. Something that makes us believe that if we just give him all our money now and for generations to come, it'll go away and things can go back to how they were under Bill Clinton.

McCain's "the economy is cratering" isn't scary at all. Its old man talk. Bush needs to come up with
3-4 headline words to punch it home that if we don't give Bush the $$ immediately, the Orientals are going to buy the USA and they'll put the illegal aliens in charge of making all US citizens cut down every tree in the US and donate the wood to Africa and France

So true... Everything was so much better during the Clinton years. Now it's all gone to shit, I tell ya.
