I like what President Bush said about staying the course in Iraq, the reprehensible and dishonest process of earmarking, and the need for some economic stimulus in the form of long-term tax cuts. However, I don't think it's the government's responsibility to go into panic mode every time there is a economic downturn. Analogous to trying to prevent winter after summer and fall. And it's hopeless, really, in the long term. Make the lower tax rates permanent and forget the cash give aways. The tax cuts and lower rates really work for keeping the economy humming. Even Nancy, above, knows that after having it drummed into her thick little head for the past 30 years or so. She's a slow learner, but better late than never.
