From the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:
Let's get this straight. The market's downward spiral is entirely the fault of our nearly-elected President Bush. Investors were looking for serious solutions to three particular issues: corporate governance, accounting fraud and stock options. Instead, we got the signature Bush diatribe full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. It is absolutely beyond belief that the characters in this administration have such little regard for our intelligence that they think we'd be duped by such pathetic drivel. Now we have a situation where foreign investment is leaving the country at a perilous rate and the rudderless ship of state is headed toward the nearest reef.
It's time for George W. to stop doing the bidding of his corporate benefactors and do something for the common good. Let's all hope that the habits of a lifetime are somehow reversible.
Let's get this straight: The stock market downturn began in March 2000, before it was even a sure thing that Bush was going to be the GOP nominee. Clinton issued a lot of high-toned rhetoric, but did absolutely nothing to address the issues you address.
"Foreign investment is leaving the country at a perilous rate"were you one of the people screaming about the country selling out to the Japanese during the Reagan administration? I'm willing to bet that you were. We don't have a rudderless ship of statewe have Tom Daschle playing obstructionist to any proposal suggested by the GOP-controlled house of Representatives or the GOP-controlled White House.
It's time for idiotarians to stop doing the bidding of their eco-extemist and anti-capitalist benefactors and do something for the common good. Let's all hope the habits of a lifetime are somehow reversible.
