Thanks so much for the gift, Mr. President! Signed, The Democratic Party:
Bush to Address Economy Over Next 2 Days
With his party facing a difficult midterm election, President Bush is focusing on the positive this week: a growing economy he is using to try to persuade voters to keep Republicans in power in Congress.
...White House spokesman Tony Fratto said Bush intends to mention how optimism about the economy and rising hopes for strong third-quarter earnings lifted the Dow Jones industrial average past 12,000 for the first time on Wednesday....
Two days? Please -- talk about this for ten days! No, talk about it all the way to November 7!
Please try to persuade voters that everything is wonderful and they're hallucinating when they correctly perceive that the current recovery is a recovery almost exclusively for the haves.
And I'm really enjoying the fact that the Democrats want to talk about Iraq while the Republicans would like to change the subject to the economy. We remember how well that worked out in 2002 when the parties' roles were reversed....
