Once again, President Bush proves that he has absolutely no idea about … well, anything. Here, he claims that the economy is not being harmed by the war, and the extraordinary amount of money being spent on the war. Instead, he thinks the war is helping the economy.
Um, yeah. That may be true if you’re one of his fat-cat friends who own companies which supply equipment and necessary (and sometimes unnecessary) items to feed the war machine. Otherwise, it’s not helping you (or me) economically at all.
By the way, since he mentions the rebate, just where exactly where is the government supposed to get the money to do that? It’s just more debt, and more interest on debt. It’s just the Republicans trying to look better before the presidential election in November, pure and simple.
