Boy, This Economy Sucks

Bloomberg reports that the economy grew at a slower than expected rate in the first quarter.

I'll bet women and children (as well as all people of color) suffered most.

The economy always sucks when a Republican is in the White House. If only we could reelect the economic genius Jimmy Carter.

Well the only reason the economy was that good was because Bush made Katrina happen and that meant the ravaged Gulf Coast had to rebuilt.

I am getting good at this.

You've hit the nail on the head. Bush knocked down the WTC, started the war, and pumped out Katrina (not to mention opening the formerly sealed border with Mexico) to jack up economic growth. Now that everyone is on to his schtick we'll put a stop to this growth stuff. Europe ain't got no growth, why should we. What we need is their welfare system. Screw a bunch of growth.

Well just start with the supposition that Bush is Satan and everything he does is wrong and take it from there. If he says day is light, you say it is dark..etc.

And of course while it is going gangbusters for rich people [like Bill Clinton and Nancy Pelosi] ordinary people are forced to prostitute their children for food.
