State of the Union? An embarrassing lovefest for a smirking failure of a president.
Was your congressional representative and were your senators among the cheering throngs last night for the smirking, prissy cheerleader-in-chief?
Mine were and it was sickening.
It was just another example of the Tom DeLay, New Gingrich and right-wing drug-crazed radio jocks bullying bellicose behavior. They have nothing of which to be proud, so they make noise cheering it.
We need to allow the rich to keep their tax cuts. After all, look how well it has worked out now.
Were your representatives among the cheering?
Were they cheering that during the past seven years the tax cuts for the rich have helped lower the median annual household income by more than $1,000 a year?
Or were they cheering that those tax cuts have helped destroy a budget surplus and saddled us with a $734 billion deficit?
Were they cheering that those tax cuts to create jobs in reality led to an economy where job growth is almost stagnant - from 1.76 million jobs created per year in the eight years before Bush to 369,000 jobs per year over the last seven years?
Maybe they were cheering that the Canadian Loon, or dollar, is now worth more than the U.S. dollar.
Were they the ones cheering Bush blaming Congress for denying health
care when it was the private insurance company's denial of service that
recently killed a young person needing a transplant? Were they cheering
the obscene insurance company profits - partially due to 47 million
Americans who have no health coverage? Were they cheering that that
figure is 8.5 million persons higher than when Bush strutted into
Bush smirks as he calls for less dependence on oil, while whimpering to allow more drilling in wilderness areas, the price of gasoline is more than $3.00 per barrel in much of the nation, and heading back up there for the rest.
So, Rep. Michael Burgess, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and Sen. John Cornyn were cheering $3.00 per gallon gasoline.
Yes, you are part and parcel of the "success" of Boy George Bush. I pray the voters remember just who was cheering the smirking Bush boy tonight and they do something about it.
