From Steinbeck to a retardate; what a difference a day makes.
George W. Bush is writing a book.
On “economic growth.”
That’s right, the same George Bush who threw away the budget surplus he inherited from the Clinton administration; the same George Bush who footed the bill –to the tune of a trillion dollars — for the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq totally off the books; the same George Bush whose policies steered us into the largest and longest lasting recession this country has had to endure, that George Bush is writing s book on economic growth.
lame is much experience does ol’ George have with economic growth anyway?
“…between the end of the 2001 recession (2001Q4) and the peak of that expansion (2007Q4), the U.S. economy experienced the worst economic expansion of the post-war era.”
We’re taking bets on how many copies of this learned tome the eventual publisher will
end up having to eat itself buy/write-off. Our early guess is approximately 80%. 1
- As an exercise in pointed satire we should start another contest –again with that tightwads Russian’s free magazine subscriptions as prizes; you don’t really believe he doesn’t have any, huh? — as to the best, most appropriate name for this future blockbuster. Here…we’ll start with the following entry: “What? What?” Be creative; teachers, ask your kindergartners to submit possible titles! ↩
