Husband: Hey, Honey ... ya know how you've always wondered what it's like to be one of the richest people in America? Well, congratulations ... How the trickle-down theory really works.
8 years ago when Bush became president, my then teenage children asked me what I thought it would mean. I told them that it would be a disaster for the middle class and working poor and that he was in there for one reason only; to make the rich richer. Somehow the Republicans convinced enough people (with the help of Ralph Nader) that their interests were represented by a person who was transparently pro big business and big oil, who had no compassion for the working person, who was born with silver spoon in his mouth and was had shown complete incompetence his whole life. Hopefully in the future a lesson will have been learned by the working people of this country. The Republicans certainly seemed to learn their lessons: you don’t have to fool all the people all the time, just 50.1% on election day and call it a mandate, then intimidate and bully the media and opposition party with name calling and you can rule. What that has resulted in is pretty obvious to all but about 27% of the populace (his final approval rating).
