Serious spending was required to deal w/ all of them, but that spending--along w/ the President's tax cuts--created the most dynamic and robust economy in our history. What little deficit we had will be gone before President Bush leaves office. As I'm sure you know, President Bush submitted a balanced budget to Congress every year he has been in office!
I repeat: President Bush is NOT "about big government and big spending," and you know it! Quit making a fool of yourself.
You are a fool if you think that. You fascists have exaggerated everything to frighten us so you could steal our rights and invade countries like Hitler. Disaster wise, this stuff ain't shit compared to what Lincoln or FDR had to face. In fact, most of the death toll under Bush has been people he himself murdered, the Nazi piece of a fucked pig's ass. We had moral leadership under those two men and comparing Bush to them is like comparing Pol Pot to Christ, whose probably saving a nice spot in Hell for him.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
