@Uncle Joe – Those wars fueled all sorts of jobs, mostly in the Military/Defense industry (Planes, bombs, tanks, etc.) but also in Support services: Blackwater, Food contractors, transportation, rebuilding contracts, the list goes on.
I’m not a fan of the wars; don’t get me wrong…But personally I much prefer the government spend it’s money on goods and services rather then on passing out goodies to anyone that doesn’t feel like they are getting their fair share.
Bush has been gone for more then 4 years now and the libs still use him as the excuse for why Obama’s failed policies haven’t improved the lot in life of the lazy and the stupid.
You don’t see Republicans griping about Clinton and his demands that bankers lax up on loans to people who couldn’t afford them – Arguably the most culpable in the housing bubble. You don’t see us blaming LBJ for his idiotic war on poverty as the reason this country is in it’s morass. Give it a rest on the Bush front.
The path to American greatness is paved with Freedom and a sense of Self sufficiency. The path to Mediocrity that we seem to be on now is paved with Dependence and a sense of entitlement.
