"I've bled for my country, I've sweated for my country, I've cried myself to sleep for my country -- which is a lot more than some people who are passing judgment on me have done. I would rather go sit in prison than go to Iraq." /Patrick Hart, U.S. Army sergeant with almost 10 years on active duty, who went to Canada rather than face a second deployment to Iraq. /(USA Today)

How can anyone possibly argue that Republican Economic Theory, that great supply-side pie in the sky, works? Oh, I know... George Bush wasn't conservative enough...
Anyone who can make that argument with a straight face should be left alone; they might be dangerous.
"If the economy produces jobs over the next eight months at the same pace as it did over the past four months, the nation will have created more jobs in 2010 alone than it did over the entire eight years of George W. Bush's presidency."
The stimulus worked. Supply side economics doesn't even deserve a nice garbage can. Best to burn it and compost the ashes. Don't even bother trying to argue with anyone who wants to save it. They will be a waste of your time.
"In only eight of Bush's 96 months did the economy create as many jobs as the 290,000 it did last month."
