Our fearless leader is being delusional again.
"We'll see the effects of this pro-growth package," President Bush said today in his news conference at the White House. "Why don't we let stimulus package 1, which seemed like a good idea at the time, have a chance to kick in?"
The President claimed to be only marginally concerned with our weakening dollar, slumping job, housing and stock markets, and rising food and gas prices. He thinks that we all just need to take a chill pill and relax. To paraphrase the President, his critics and worry warts alike should let his brillant economic stimulus package go out before they clamor for more.
Wait...let's journey with the President into his special La-La Land where everyone's cheeks are rosey and they smile all day. Milk, butter, seafood, eggs and corn are selling at record prices and gas will likely sell at $4.00 per gallon before the summer is over, but all is well. The President has everything figured out in his mind. The real world application of these ideas just havent happened yet. But, it will. Don't you worry. I mean, if we really were poor, would we be spending $15 billion per month in Iraq?
Of course not.
Anyway, with the rest of his speech, he slammed the senate dems for not passing the telecom immunity bill and Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for not being on board the NAFTA train.
