Now that George W. Bush has been in the White House for 2 years and a month, I think that some reflection on his positive accomplishments while in office are in order. I have thought long and hard about this subject over the past few days, and I have come up with a list of the positive aspects of his presidency. (I define that as things that have gotten BETTER in the past two years). Here they are:
- Federal taxes are lower (although mostly for the rich)
- Mortgage interest rates are lower (mainly attributable to the twelve rate cuts by the Fed, but nevermind)
- Oral sex in the Oval Office is down 100% (as far as I know)
- Sales of duct tape are way up (positive only if you are a duct tape manufacturer)
That’s all I can come up with. Would anyone care to add to my admittedly meager list. What else has gotten BETTER in the US over the past two years? I guess you could argue that things would have been even worse if GWB were not in the White House, but that would be pure speculation.
