Shocked mothers complained their children were traumatized by the violence.

Gives a new meaning to "shop till you drop" huh?

White House spokesman Scott McClellan said Bush wanted to go to the Waco Wal-Mart this morning, but the Secret Service was concerned that the people in line would have taken out their anger on Bush for their long wait in line and the shortages of Christmas gifts.

That is an accurate portrayal of the Bush PR team.

I paid $1.87 for regular unleaded in north Mississippi yesterday. More like $2.09 where I live, though.

re: $2.22 in my area

I'm seeing it for $2.05 here in Tampa today.

Don't you just love the way the MSM handles it. Now that they can no longer claim the economy is doing very badly their response is to tout a shortage of Christmas gifts! And of course, the shortage is the fault that Old Grinch himself, Dubya.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but most of the people I've heard talked to in lines were there to take advantage of sale prices, not because they feared a shortage.

Good ol' MSM. Nice to know some things never change.

That's a lie.

'Scottie' couldn't complete a sentence like that without mumbling, stammering, and/or stuttering. Or without stopping mid sentence to apologize to David Gregory at least three times.

"Bush's irresponsible tax cuts have hurt working families. I haven't seen lines like this since the breadlines of Republican Herbert Hoover's Great Depression. The shortages of Christmas gifts at this time of year shows how much Bush has squandered the Clinton legacy of sound economic policies."

So we can forget the Laffer curve, we can forget the deficit.  The real reason Bush's tax-cuts were a miserable failure is that they've caused shortages of goods for sale and an excess of cash in people' pockets.

Believe me libs are hoping for disasters at home as well as abroad. They obstinately refuse to believe that tax cuts work. They cannot give up the idea that people know how to spend their own money better than the government does. I have lib coworkers who actually expressed fear that the economy would collapse because of the tax cuts. I could only look at them in disbelief. They truly believe that government creates wealth and not private industry.

President Bush is condemned no matter what happens on his shift. If there weren't prosperity he'd be blamed for a recession. If people weren't flocking to the stores he'd be blamed for that.

When they can't find anything to blame him for they makes up lies.

They're devils. Liberals are evil beings.
