The Republican Economic Philosophy is Bankrupt

For much of the past seven years, many experts have worried that George W. Bush's policies might drive the nation over the cliff. Here's a profile of the Dow over the last year.

For the sake of the nation, let's hope things start turning around. But we may have to wait a few months. It's clear McCain has little understanding of economics. Obama has the smarts, the steady hand and the economic advisers to give us a fighting chance, but there's work to be done. As we can see from the chart, the Republicans are leading us nowhere.

You're too kind. Nowhere would be preferable to where our neocon Republican geniuses have led us.

I sometimes think if I hear another twangy-voiced conservative idiot say "grow the economy" one more time, I might just lose control.

Apply the logic of these ideological simpletons to truck farming. Imagine a field planted in tomatoes being buried daily under more and more fertilizer, that washed down with enough water to make the field a swamp. So to soak up the excess water, dump more black dirt on it. Then, the next day, start the same cycle over.

Think that approach will grow more and bigger tomatoes? Not a chance. What it will do is waste chemicals, water, dirt and tomato seeds, leaving an incredible mess.

What I'd like to know is why Bush, Cheney, Holtz-Eakins and the rest of these well-dressed cretins and crooks aren't on the phone raising hell with all the rich people who have not, are not and will not trickle a lot more of the wealth showered on them down to Main Street and to us lesser beings — the way Bush & Co. and congressional Republicans insisted they would.
