American's have been safe from terrorists attacks but then again, we are ASSUMING that they have been planning daily, weekly, monthly attacks and we don't know that. We DO KNOW that they attacked in 1993 and 2001 with foreign attacks in between. If THAT is their model, we don't really know just how successful we terrorism has shown to not really be running on our ADD time frame.

As for the economy, Kudlow just has that one wrong. It is that simple. There are to many elements in motion in this economy that show it is failing and to few elements that are showing that it is a success.

So Kudlow is Green, Yellow, Red which is about what I would expect from him.

Why do you keep filling up this place with that junk?

Total trash talking from that corner, nobody except for the other sheep bother with this.
He posts something that couldn't be better titled to get a rise.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thats what I intend to reverse.

At best, that was an unintended consequence.

You are making an egregious mistake or being astoundingly naive to assume his command of the language, wit, ability to think critically and to provoke others is on an equal basis with yours.

So the dumbass thinks he has had a good year and as the resident retard had a bad year, does that make me and the dumbass of equal Intelligence.


The troop surge in Iraq is succeeding. America remains safe from terrorist attacks. And the Goldilocks economy is outperforming all expectations.

Bush Acknowledges Existence Of Carbon Dioxide
December 21, 2007 | Issue 43•51



WASHINGTON—In an unexpected reversal that environmentalists and scientists worldwide are calling groundbreaking, President George W. Bush, for the first time in his political career, openly admitted to the existence of carbon dioxide following the release of the new U.N. Global Environment Outlook this October.

The announcement has wide-ranging implications for exhalation, club soda, and photosynthesis.

"Carbon dioxide, a molecule which contains one atom of carbon bonded with two atoms of oxygen, is a naturally occurring colorless gas exhaled by humans and metabolized, in turn, by plants," Bush told a stunned White House press corps. "As a leading industrialized nation, we can no longer afford to ignore the growing consensus of so many experts whose job it is to study our atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is real."

Because carbon dioxide, which was first described by 17th-century Flemish physician Jan Baptista van Helmont as a gas he referred to as "spiritus silvestre," has long been denied by the Bush administration, the president's speech was widely hailed as a victory for advocates of empirically established scientific fact.

"This has been a major step forward for national basic-chemistry policy," said longtime CO2 proponent and eighth-grade science teacher Linda Mattson. "By taking this brave stance, Bush has opened the door for the eventual acknowledgment that other molecular compounds, such as H20, for example, may in fact exist as well."

Many of those whom Bush has long considered to be his most loyal followers, however, have expressed disappointment with the development.

"There is nothing about any 'carbon dioxide' in the Bible," said Rev. Luke Hatfield of Christchurch Ministries in Topeka, KS. "What's next? Claims that so-called 'fossil' fuels come from mythical creatures like dinosaurs? This has been a sad step backward for our nation."

A White House spokesman was careful to categorize the announcement as "cautious," and reiterated that the president is still not ready to take any position on the existence of polar ice caps, ozone, or a controversial idea held by many scientists and often referred to as "weather."

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.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
