Did You Know Tuesday

Did you know that it’s awesome to know that after 8 years of absolute failure by the Bush administration to have the glimmer of light and hope with the incoming President Obama and his new administration? The fact that this great country again has the opportunity to show the world that we are a decent people and not the absolute morons that the previous administration has made us out to be?

A partial list of the Bush administrations' massive failures:
1. He took over the government in 2000 with a nearly $230 billion dollar surplus. He has left over $4trillion in debt. (and yet the republicant party accuses the Democrats of doing nothing but spending money).
2. Left the US with the worst recession since World War II.
3. Left the US with the worst unemployment in over 30 years (over 7.5 percent).
4. Left the GDP down.
5. Attacked a country that never attacked us AND was never a threat to the US (and lied to the American people and the World about the reasons for occupying Iraq).
6. Presided over the worst terrorist attack in US history in 2001 (after ignoring warnings passed to his administration from the outgoing Clinton administration that there was a lot of chatter about terrorists planning an attack on the US with an airplane).
7. Presided over the worst crash of Wall Street since the Great Depression of the 20s.
8. Completely failed with his handling of the Hurricane Katrina disaster (“That’s good work you’re doing, Brownie.”)
9. Violated the Geneva Convention by allowing torture of prisoners.
10. Allowed for the wiretapping of American's even when they were not being accused of any crimes.
11. And let's not forget the whole debacle of his nominating Harriet Miers for the Supreme Court.
12. He stood by Karl Rove despite Rove being implicated in the leak of a covert CIA agent's identity.

This list goes on and on and on. The only good thing to come of all of this is that it will not take history long to determine that George W. Bush was, without a doubt, the worst president to ever be elected in the United States. Shame on the Supreme Court for putting him into power back in 2000, and shame on the Americans who voted for him when his record was as bad as it was.

President Obama…it is with GREAT appreciation and relief we welcome you as President of the United States today. You have a huge pile of shite left for you by the outgoing (mis)administration, but it is your hope and determination that fills the majority of this country with the optomism that you will help us dig out of the hole left for us by the Bush/Rove/Cheney/Rumsfeld reign of terror and lies and abject failures.
Today, Tuesday, January 20, 2009, is a great day.
