What did George Bush to do hurt the economy?
Well let's see. For starters, he....
(That is, not counting the long-term harm his tax-cuts + big-spending will do after he's long retired.)
Oh, not counting that. This is sort of like trying to describe Dolly Parton's appearance without reference to breasts or hair, but hey.
To think up an example of how badly Bush is fucking up my mutual funds, I had to think all the way back to my drive to work this morning. The Marketplace Morning Report said foreign boycotts are hurting American brands. Something like 80% of leading global brands are owned by US corporations, and around half the sales of these brands are overseas. Bush's war is not popular in those weird, foreign places. Spain, for example, has had huge war protests, with upwards of a million people in the streets of Madrid-- and we count Spain as being on our side. Polls say something like 80% of Europeans are adamantly against the war. They see the US as arrogant and aggressive and violent and lawless. And so they're not inclined to buy Coke and Disney and all the other flag-draped shit we send them. "Fuck America" is their attitude, and why not?
Who's going to buy this shit then?
What others say about boorite!
