George W. Bush was handed a gift by his greedy rich banking and Wall Street pals, during the last days of his administration. They had drove the American economy into the ground and to George W. Bush this was a gift from heaven. This was George W. Bush's opportunity to spend more money on his greedy Wall Street and Banking pals, more money than most of us can imagine leaving the next President with and empty til and a huge national debt.
It was a done deal that Barack Obama was going to win the election and the right wing wanted to make sure Barack Obama didn't have any money for social programs or anything else for that matter, but Barack Obama managed to get his Economic Recovery Plan Stimulus Package passed without any help from Republicans in the House of Representatives and minimum help from the Republicans in the Senate. Barack Obama won and the right wing neo cons lost and now the right wingers are doing their best to divide us by waling about their tax dollars being spent on what they call dead beats facing foreclosure when in fact they are the very ones that got us into this mess. It's been a long time since the right wing neo cons have been defeated, exposed and put in their place and I'm so happy I got to see it. Emerson once said, "If you do can a thing once, you can do it twice. If you can do it twice, you can make a habit out of it."
The right wingers will go to any extent up to and including torture to get their way and this one victory is just that, one victory. We have the opportunity to make a habit of winning and I'm ready to be on the winning side for a change!
