Bingo! Did no one ever tell Bush, did he never imagine that if he pauperized middle America, they were going to drop him like a hot potato.
Was he really this clueless all the way from the beginning?
You know many of my siblings and cousins have lost aprox 25% of all their retirement savings in the last 12 months and most had at least 40% in CDs, thankfully. Most of them had routinely voted republican all their lives. They will never forgive republicans (Bush, McCain, Paulson, etc) for telling them that nothing was wrong with the economy, don’t believe the lies that the economy is headed down, in other words, buy more stocks they’re a bargain. All this when even a casual look at credit expansion running wild, over building, and lack of standards in lending would lead to a completely different conclusion.
