How much of this was caused by bringing in an old administrations leadership (Rumsfeld, Cheney and Wolfolwitz) that was dominant during the 1980's another time of recession, Iran Contra, civil war in Honduras, and all kinds of nasty little secrets coming out in the recent years? Bush is the "talking head" for these other guys agenda. In this administration, they are definitely business friendly to the extreme. Starting with NAFTA being passed by the Republican majority houses during the Clinton Administration. I tell you they will be sorry if things don't turn up as far as jobs. If the jobless have any good sense come election day, they'll vote Bush and the Federalist cronies out of office come election day.
Bush is a fool for taking the heat for these people. So foolish, I almost feel sorry for him. We'll see what the payoff will be for him in the next few years. I hope it's worth all the trouble he's going through.
