Our economy recovered after 9/11, unemployment was almost zero with companies having trouble finding people to work for them, no more 9/11s when we all were sure there would more, algore and Kerry didn't become President...
Yet, through it all, the media was able to report doom and gloom, doing their best to convince us how bad we had it until we finally elected a demonrat majority and now a President who have helped to make that doom and gloom a reality.
This was far from our worst decade, but unless we are able to flush congress and the presidency, this next decade certainly will be.
Time and Newsweek are very predictable. When they have their list of “worst” and “best”, the former tend to be associated with Republican policies and the later tend to be associated with Democratic policies.
I cannot remember whether it was Time or Newsweek, but it was either one of the two. They had a list of the best in every field from science to sports to academic. When it came to selecting the best legislator in congress, guess who they selected ? None other than the honorable swimmer -— TED KENNEDY.
I finally found out that it was indeed TIME MAGAZINE that selected Ted Kennedy as one of the top 10 best senators.
This from BBC NEWS after Ted Kennedy’s death :
In 2006, Time magazine named him as one of America’s “Ten Best Senators”, saying that he had “amassed a titanic record of legislation affecting the lives of virtually every man, woman and child in the country”.
