The successes of President George W. Bush

Fran SavarickBreckenridge

I’m getting sick and tired of my fellow Americans saying that the presidency of George W. Bush is a failure. With the string of successes he’s had, nothing could be further from the truth. Let me list a few:1. He has successfully rid America of that troubling budget surplus and turned it into a $500 billion deficit.2. He has successfully helped America’s trading partners have the highest trade surplus with us in America’s history.3. He has successfully lowered the taxes for the richest Americans and corporations at the expense of 99 percent of the American population.4. He has successfully started another Vietnam in Iraq after lying to the whole world.5. He has successfully pushed the price of gas up to the highest level ever here in America.6. He has successfully allowed American corporations to dramatically increase their pollution.7. He has successfully thrown about 10 percent of the population out of work.8. He has successfully allowed corporations to export our best middle-class jobs.9. He has successfully divided our country as never before.10. He has successfully driven our oldest allies away.11. He has successfully united the terrorists as never before (he said all along he was a uniter, not a divider).12. He has successfully broken his oath to uphold the constitution of the United States of America.13. He has successfully united Democrats (yea!) as they haven’t been for years (I told you he was a uniter).14. He has successfully driven me out of the Republican party for the rest of my life.You know, with a string of successes like that, it’s a wonder America is still standing. Feel free to add to this list.Fran SavarickBreckenridge
