Stop... put your gun down and take your head out of your bottom. Your the cause of the grief we are experiencing... You bring nothing to this nation worth commending! Your foreign policy is pile of self promoting, selfish bull puckey. Pick it up...and throw it into the deepest part of the Atlantic. I thank you, for putting all of our nations money into fighting and bringing this economic stress upon our nations people! That is exactly what I wanted to see from the leader of the most influential nation in the world!
- It's not 100% the war, although obviously throwing away money hurts. It's really the general lack of competence. Greenspan could cut interest rates willy nilly under Clinton since people believed that Clinton had appointed competent people. But Bush's people have made just so very many stupid stupid moves : Brownie, small moves around the war, firing all the CIA people who knew about terrorists, poor timing of interest rate cuts, etc.
- You can't just appoint some bunch of loyal idiots. They must occasionally make real decisions. People notice if they all getting the tricky ones wrong. People won't trust your economic decisions once notice that you've appointed idiots. So the economy starts to crumble from lack of confidence.
- It doesn't matter who wins the next election, they just need to appoint competent people who do their job, any of Hillary, Obama, or McCain will probably do so. That will spur on the economy more than any interest rate cut. Nyarlathotep 13:50, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
