43. NY Times-Patrick e. Tyler-5-17-03—“In reversal, plan for Iraqi self rule by June 1 put off indefinitely. “When I make up my mind(scorched?) it stays made up”? Sho!

44.BIG WAFFLE—Washington Post-8-19-03-Dana Milbank & Bradley Graham—
“Bush revises view on combat in Iraq”.---May I on USS Desertion he said-- “Combat Operations are over”.. Now—“Actually, Major military operations continue because we still have combat operations going on”. Is this boy of scorched brain or what?

45. TEACH FOR AMERICA PROGRAM ZAPPED BY BUSH. I am pissed off. Big time. In 2000 campaign Bush promised President Wendy Koop to expand it. His aides asked President Wendy Koop to quadruple it. . On July 11,2003 she got a letter “We regret to inform you your application was not selected for funding”. Gone. Zapped totally. Bush is one of sorriest not just worst in history. Read TIME—8-17-03. Joe Klein article headed “WHO KILLED TEACH FOR AMERICA”? Sorry, but I am so furious I have difficulty writing. I do not like to curse but xxxxxxx.

45.OBL not priority or is he?

E. 3-13-02—“I don’t know where Bin Laden is. I have no idea and I really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.” Wow!

46. Bush told bob Woodward in his book “Bush War” that “he didn’t feel that sense of urgency” about Al Qaeda prior to 9-11”. Now claims had great sense of urgency.

47.Nov 2003 Bush made highly touted speech about spreading democracy in the entire Middle East. NYT reported he backed away after it was denounced by Egypt Mubarak and Crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.

48. 2-2-04 Budget Director Bolton-“we will not need additional funds for 04.”

55. 3-6-03 Bush vows to have a UN vote no matter what 3-18-03-Wash Post-“Bush withdraws request for UN vote.”

56. Columbia Journalism Review—Bush vetoed Patients Bill Of Rights as Governor but boasted how he got it passed. Now, flip flop to double straddle. He touted the Texas law as super duper.
When a challenge to the Texas Law went before Supreme Court Bush joined with two HMO’s in opposing the law. Could it be because the HMO’s are Pioneers in his campaign. Doesn’t this man have any honor or integrity?

57.Remove troops from Korea. A proposal by Cheney. Bush on 3-13-02 “There is no question we have obligations around the world, which we will keep. There is a major obligation for the 37,000 troops in South Korea. It is an obligation that is an important obligation. I know it is important and we will keep that obligation.

AP 7-19-01—White House release 7-17-01 “remarks by the President in Roundtable interview with Foreign Press.

August 23,2004 Bush said: “the practice of independent groups to run smear ads is bad for the system. They should be banned. ”Never heard of Swift Boat?

62. Bush said over and over in late 2005—“I will veto the McCain Bill on Torture”
The Bill passed overwhelmingly in Congress and old --“When I make up my Mind it stays made up” --said “This is a great bill and I will sign it”.

Ho! Hum! Just another day in Bush Waffle House.

These inane comments explain this comment Bush made in 2000 campaign to a group of recovering addicts in Iowa:

“I’m on a Walk just like you. It is a never ending Walk as far as I’m concerned.

Is anyone treating him?

Orangutan Ann Coulter
When she was a regular on Rivera I was watching an animal show with hyeractive Orangutans scooting all over the place.

I switched to Geraldo and wow I saw a replica of the animal show.

I am serious. I immediately placed Orange on Coulter's face and the shape of her face plus the hyperactive motions reminded me of the animals. I laughed hard.

Since then I paint her face Orange to get laughs.

This is not a joke. It happened and happens.

SWINNEY FACT CHECK
BUSH ECONOVOMIT

1. GDP--very high growth.
Consumer spending is 70% of the total. Debt for that spending all time record. By Far. National Saving negative first time since Repub Great Depression. Govt spent 3,000B of money borrowed from foreigners to aid the spending.

2. Debt as % of National Income--In 2000 it was 80% and in 2005 it was 110%.

Also, check number 6 or Money Supply. Federal Reserve increasing money supply. Awesome.

This not a healthy economic growth. Except for ULTRA-RICH.

2. DOW--Clinton hit record 11,720 in 2000. Bush is less than 2,000 above that record. Bush has passed a 1,000 mark twice. Clinton 8.
Clinton increase to his top was 8,200 billion. That was big.

The S&P plus One-half Dow stocks are just now back to 2000 level.

Let us look at TOTAL STOCK MARKET not 30 stocks.

Per Year Increase
Clinton-41%
Bush I-21%
Reagan-17%
Carter-5%
Bush II-4% this is a zoom? Six years.

3. Nasdaq. Clinton record 5000 in 2000. Bush record is to cut it in half--ZOOM down is not good.

4. JOBS--Oh! How we practice to deceive say Conservatives. They tried using Reagan record as from 1983 to 1989. Six years. Omit two years? Come on! Integrity shall never meet me.
They are trying the same deception with Bush. Omit 2001 and 2002.

BUSH NET JOB INCREASE--70,000 per month over 6 years(less one month) This the Big Big ZOOM? He brags on this. Crazy or dumb?
Reagan-175,000 per month over 8 years.
Carter-218,000 per month over 4 years.
Clinton-237,000 per month over 8 years.

5.HOUSING--low interest rates did the boom. Big Money Boom by Fed. Tax Cuts had little effect. Bush big time Moogumboo.
Foreclosures ahead! Big Time.

The number of years of average income to buy a new home at average prices.SHOCKING
Check this closely.

1950-2.5 years
1960-2.4 years
1970-2.5 years
1980-3.5 years
1990-4.3 years
2000-3.2 years
2006-5.4 years---this is a Zoom. Wrong direction.

A 68% Increase in six years is not a good ZOOM.

Wages have been too slow or prices too high or a combination.
Baby Boomers will create a genuine mess in our budgets.

Taking bets on Foreclosures. 5 million or 10 million over next five years.

6. MONEY SUPPLY
Bush Sr. claimed Greenspan policies cost him a re-election.
He was correct. Look at tight money supply for him.
Increases “per year” average in Money supply-In Billions.
Reagan-239---Bush I—56---Clinton—380---Bush II –760 (5 years)
Bush Sr. was correct. Greenspan did not attempt to stimulate the economy for him.
M-1 + M-1 Increase per decade.
1980 Decade-88%--1990 Decade—48%--2000(5 months) 55%
Monthly Average Increase in Decades—1980’s—120B per month—1990’s 64B per month—2006 (5 years + 4 months)-400 B.
Federal Reserve.gov 6-26-07
120-64-(400 in one half a decade is obvious favoritism).
If they continue that trend it will be 120-64-700.
It is obvious the Federal Reserve favored Reagan and now Bush II.

He opened the Printing Presses full time for Jr.
He shafted Clinton with 6.5% interest rate and gave Bush II a 1% rate.

6. SPENDING—Bush inherited spending at 18.5% of GDP and in first term took it to 20.3%. Eight years=disaster. Watch Conservatives try to remove one-half the budget by using Discretionary only. A President is responsible for ALL spending.

Do not let them Goering you with IRAQ the spending problem.
Last two years we spent over 5000 Billion in total. 500B in four years on Iraq. They will try to Goering us.

7. DEBT—all fault of Iraq War
Someone needs to check percentages.
Since inception of illegal slaughterama President Cheney and Puppet Bush have spent $12,379 Billion. $450 Billion on killings.
How has 3% created $3000 Billion of Debt?

8. CORPORATE PROFITS
Yes! Zoom Level. Buy overseas at $.50 per hour labor and sell to us as tho it is $10.00 per hour labor.

Whoever is President during 2010-2020 will be in deep doodoo.
Since 1980 this nation's economy has been turned upside down.

From WWII to 1980 all Income-Wealth quintiles increased almost evenly percentage wise.

Since 1980 it has been rush to top with bottom 75% stagnated.
