President George W. Bush will address the economy and its its recent positive economic news. The Bush haters and White House critics can spin all they want; however, the two most important facts of why we elect a President and a political party in Congress are based upon “safety/homeland security” and “the economy”.
Let’s just have some honesty about the situation. 15 days out of a midterm election, all is not what the MSM and Democrats are saying.
Democrats have cried from the roof tops that we are not any safer today than we were before 9/11, yet they cannot point to one instance of an attack on the US. Democrats have complained of the economy, yet it is in better shape than when Clinton was in office. Democrats have criticized the Patriot Act and the program that allows the US to listen on telephone calls of potential terrorists calling abroad. They have criticized a fence between Mexico and the US. What is most telling is the MSM and the Democrats certainly brushed over the US/Britain Airplane plot that was prevented due to great work to prevent terrorism against the US. Democrats have criticized an economy that sees more home ownership than ever before and a stock market based on solid financials, not speculation.
Former President William Jefferson Clinton survived impeachment for one reason and one reason alone. Clinton’s job approval ratings (not personal approval ratings) were in the 60’s and there was a booming economy. Please remember this was a booming economy based upon a fictitious .com economy bubble and corporate scandal such as Global Crossing, Enron, and WorldCom. Take a good look at when these scandals took place and when they were brought to light and justice was served.
Obviously there is a debate of whether the war on terror can be included to Iraq. In my opinion at this point it can be included. For those who wish to nay say everything that the One main important fact is that the economy during the GWB had to a .com bubble, the 9/11disaster, corporate scandals, war on terror and escalating oil prices. After all that, The United States economy has rebounded to a solid one based on corporate profits not speculative .com insanity. That rebound has also meant a turn-around in many 401k’s as well. White House and the Republican controlled Congress has done is simple partisan politics. Say what you will about the Bush Administration with regards to the war in Iraq, you cannot dispute two facts. Remember that when one decides to cast their vote in November. Where are we now, where did we come from and who got us there.
Blue chips resumed a three-month rally after stalling Friday; the Dow briefly surpassed 12,100 and reached a new trading high of 12,117.95, eclipsing the old mark of 12,049.51 set last week. Broader market indexes also gained, shrugging off concerns about the Federal Reserve’s decision on interest rates later this week.
2. The United States has not been hit by a terrorist attack since 9/11/01.
