It's Still the Economy, Stupid

Ahh yes.. the monthly unemployment numbers are out today and we have hit the highest rate since 1994. Oh, and the largest month to month increase since after 9-11. Call me crazy, but didn't the President promise 1.4 million new jobs by the end of 2004 as a result of his 2003 tax giveaway? Well, Georgie, you're already 30,000 in the negative, according to today's data. But let us not forget the other 2,000,000 that have disappeared during the Bush administration.
Bush is on the verge of becoming the first president since Hoover of presiding over an economy with a net loss of jobs over his term. Wow. In just a couple short years, Bush has managed to destroy the economic prosperity that was built over the mid and late 90's. All those years of balanced budgets, job creation and economic stability washed away in two years of crony capitalism that rewards wealth rather than enterprise. I wonder if maybe we could not have destroyed Iraq simply by sending the Bushies over to govern, rather than American soldiers to die.
If the Democratic nomineee can neutralize the issue of security, then Bush is a goner. It's just that simple.
