Bush left nation a mess

As I recall when President Bush left office, we were losing jobs by the thousands every month. He got us into two wars without budgeting for them; the only time in American history that we went to war and got a tax cut.  Also a big wet kiss to the BigPharma with Part D on Medicare.

To paraphrase a comment: Remember when teachers, public employees, Planned Parenthood, NPR, and PBS crashed the stock market, wiped out many 401K’s, took billions in taxpayer funded bailouts, spilled oil and killed people in the Gulf of Mexico as well as coal mines, gave themselves billions in bonuses, and paid little in taxes? Me, neither.
