Worse off now

Unfortunately, we have a mad man in the White House. The sad part is that he was not really elected in either the 2000 or 2004 elections. It was all done with smoke and mirrors.

Here is what this person has accomplished:

An unnecessary war where over 2,200 U.S. soldiers have died, many thousands have been wounded. Thousands of innocent Iraqis have died and billions of dollars wasted.

The threat of terror is now worse than ever – not better.

An enormous national debt. He had a surplus when he took office.

An overwhelming trade deficit with China and it gets worse each year.

A foiled Medicare prescription program.

A miserable environmental record. He now wants to sell national forest land. Drilling in the pristine arctic wilderness is on his agenda.

He denies global warming.

The Tom DeLay and Jack Abramoff scandals are a hot subject. Bush claimed that he didn’t know Abramoff, but later photos of the two turned up.

The Mexican illegal immigrants are another situation. Mexican gangs and crime is rampant.

The list could go on and on. He is drunk with power. The future looks very bleak for my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. It is very scary.
