Thank you Mr. Bush


There are some people today complaining that we are just not giving Mr. Bush enough credit for the war in Iraq. So it goes, in the name giving credit where credit is due.

Dear Mr. president Bush, (W)

You know, (may be not really) I wrote to you numerous times during your presidency, about the economy, about the direction of our country,  about the wars, education, morals, health care and  poverty. It may be that you did not personally read my E mails, but I am sure they are part of your library, I even sent copies of these emails, to my senator, Shelby, and also to my local newspaper and a talk radio show, pretty sure the Department of homeland security has copies.

In April 2007,  I wrote to you  about the collapse of the housing market and the subsequent demise of the economy, yet in August of the same year you were bragging that seventy percent of Americans owned their own homes.

"In 1929, Irving Fisher, Professor of Economics at Yale University, famously stated: "Stocks have reached what looks like a permanently high plateau." Jim Cramer told his viewers shortly before Bear Stearns filed for bankruptcy: "Bear Stearns is fine." Hank Paulson advised us on May 7, 2008 that "The worst is likely to be behind us." My personal favorite comes from financial expert Donald Luskin. On September 14, 2008 he wrote an article in the Washington Post stating "...anyone who says we're in a recession, or heading into one -- especially the worst one since the Great Depression -- is making up his own private definition of "recession." And probably for his own political purposes." Dan Solin, Huffington Post

May be you were not lying, may be you were just misinformed, like those who wanted to take the office of the president of the United States, like Obama, like I was saying why would anyone want to be the leader of the upcoming mess we are going to be in.

Maybe no one really thinks it’s going to happen. Everyone hopes something good will happen one thing that will kick everything in there favor more than likely this is what there hopping for. And in the past one event can change everything and cause things to turn for the better. If you look at most peoples lives that what we do. That and if you are the president your more than likely not to have as rough time as everyone else rations only effect those it applies to. And as far as those who you say are misinformed I really don’t see what they could have said they pretty much have to say things are going to get better if they didn’t they would be fired or they lose money. And if they talked like you do there would be plenty of people saying they where gross misstatements and how they where panic the public. So they have to say what they have to say. Not to mention they might see things differently, you are right to say life a game of connect the dots but not everyone agrees how to connect said dots.
