George W. Bush

This is a Joke, Right?

via the NY Times

WASHINGTON — In the three years since he left office, former President George W. Bush has largely stayed out of the political arena. He has spent his time mapping out his library, making speeches, hosting injured veterans for Texas bicycle rides and making clear how glad he is to be out of the nation’s capital.

But gingerly, the 43rd president is beginning to add his voice back into the national dialogue. A month ago, he spoke publicly in favor of one of his defining domestic legacies, the tax cuts that still divide the country. Two months from now, he plans to publish a book outlining strategies for economic growth. And on Tuesday, he made a rare return to Washington to promote freedom overseas.

Former President George W. Bush. The man who killed the economy. Is going to publish a book outlining strategies for economic growth.

By all means, bring back George W. Bush. Parade him everywhere. Remind everyone about his presidency. Tell your friends.

    Is there any proof that tax cuts for the wealth do anything but transfer the wealth of the country to the rich?

    • IrishGrrrl

      No, but that never stopped them from beating that dead horse.

      Tax cuts for the wealthy has only worked in that alternate universe over at Fox News.

    “Freedom overseas”. Does that mean the freedom for him to go overseas without getting arrested as a war criminal?
