Reagan and did it without Congress' involvement? How extra-constitutional of him! Same with Bushes. I'll just bet if we took a little stroll down memory lane we would find plenty of evidence of party collusion. Wanna bet?

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 thatís what I intend to reverse.

Jobs Fell by 20,000 in April, Far Less Than Expected

Employers cut far fewer jobs in April than in recent months and the unemployment rate dropped to 5 percent, a better-than-expected showing that still revealed strains in the nation's labor market.

Wow. You mean the middle class might be in a recession?

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.

Since the President has the veto power the ultimate responsibilty belongs to him. Borrow that civics textbook from lunkhead.

Republicans like Botnst still cling to the "tax and spend Democrats" myth. Try the truth:

Jay's partisan politics view of the economy versus my parent's friends who are all, and I repeat all, scaling back their lifestyle out of necessity. They are all bonafide, smack dab, middle class. Some do not turn their A/C on as much or as low. Other's cut back on lawn watering. No trips, no parties, no new cars, etc. Many of them are still massive Republican backers since Dallas is the #1 conservative city in the USA. I guess this is what always happens when you are out of touch.
The recession has just now started to bitch slap Texas. Real estate is dead, new car sales are dead, classic car sales are hurt. Texas was held up by NAFTA but even it cannot counter the tide alone.
