    Hello? If you want Clinton Era economic successes, you’ll need Clinton Era tax rates. Just saying…

    Bush, sr’s ambassador to Iraq told Saddam he could have Kuwait. (The White House had already ordered the Pentagon to prepare for war with Iraq.) Bush, sr told the entire Gulf that he had inside information that Saddam planned to conquer the entire Gulf, and the US would like to help, but didn’t have the money.


    The Gulf got the invoice for the first Iraq-US War, and made the payments after Clinton was in the White House.


    Bush, jr learned from his father’s sad mistake: an on-going war wins re-election; a 100 hour victory leads to defeat at the polls, and your successor gets the cash you earned by sending the US military as mercenaries for the Gulf sheikdoms, gets full credit for the resulting budget surpluses, and wins re-election in ’96 by a comfortable margin.

    The problem is the huge numbers of people on the government nipple. There is no way to take away all the free money and benefits without rioting in the streets. No politician wants to go down that road, but one day they will have to. The money will run out. And it will not be pretty.

    ^ We have to keep feeding them or they’ll rise up and take what they want, and you and I will lose everything. Best we continue to pacify them with a little bread and circuses.
