    It's almost a cliche to say that they really do lie about everything in the Bush Administration. It's really quite amazing. White House staffers called the press to a briefing about the dire fiscal situation facing the country. Given their screwed up economic policy, the deficit will be outrageously high. But, they lie and inflate the numbers to make themselves look better:
    This is the third straight year in which the White House has summoned reporters well ahead of the official budget release to project a higher-than-anticipated deficit. In the past two years, when final deficit figures have come in at record or near-record levels, White House officials have boasted that they had made progress, since the final numbers were below estimates.

    "This administration has a history of overestimating the deficit early in the year, lowering expectations, then taking credit when it comes in below forecast," said Stanley E. Collender, a federal budget expert at Financial Dynamics Business Communications. "It's not just a history. It's almost an obsession."

    Indeed, the dire new forecast came the same day that Treasury Department officials were touting a very different picture: The federal government posted the first budget surplus for December in three years, buoyed by a rush of corporate tax payments that more than offset record spending. On Jan. 6, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office reported that the deficit for the first three months of the fiscal year was about $119 billion, almost exactly where it stood for the first quarter of fiscal 2005.
    You know their lying and obfuscating is out of hand when even the traditional media is on to their game.

    Republicans always run up huge deficits, then campaign on the premise of "fiscal responsibility." The same thing happens in Canada. And hardly anyone calls them on their bullshit.

    I cant believe we're close to having that child molestor Harper as prime minister.

    Have people no grasp of history? All conservative governments fuck up the country.

    Speaking of corruption, the Mulroney years were the biggest takedown/sellout of taxpayers and their money in recent memory. On the take doesn't even begin to describe their graft. Oh, and they brought in the GST to boot.

    Harper makes my skin crawl; he's Bush's smarter, "better" half.

    You know whats going to happen.. Harper will have a minority gov and be restricted in what he can do.. so he'll play nice for a couple years, and everyone will see what a NICE guy he is, and how his Conservatives arent scary..

    .. and then when the real election rolls around, he'll win a majority and then watch the gloves come off and his right wing christian wingnut half come out to turn Canada into the 51st state.

    Hell, even Americans are going "wtf are you people doing, have you learned nothing from what you've seen down here?!"

    Grimm, I see a slight problem with the title of your thread. One should never use the words "Bush" and "thinks" in the same sentence. Only kidding you...
    Keep passing the open windows.

    Good one, Glasgow!

    Hey Buttmunch! I think the Shrub must be getting his info from his club of groupies over at the place that we won't mention. You know the ones who have been posting for ages that the economy has never been as strong as under the president they didn't vote for

    Bush has some fundamental problems that he and other
    presidents manage to turn a blind eye to:

    [U.S.] workers are so ignorant and lack so many basic skills that American businesses spend $30 billion a year on remedial training (NYT, Dec. 12, 2004). No wonder they relocate elsewhere!

    The World Health Organization "ranked the countries of the world in terms of overall health performance, and the U.S. [was]...37th." In the fairness of health care, we're 54th. "The irony is that the United States spends more per capita for health care than any other nation in the world" (The European Dream, pp.79-80). Pay more, get lots, lots less.

    Lack of health insurance coverage causes 18,000 unnecessary American deaths a year. (That's six times the number of people killed on 9/11.) (NYT, Jan. 12, 2005.)

    U.S. employers eliminated 1 million jobs in 2004 (The Week, Jan. 14, 2005).
    Plenty more where that came from. Source: citypages

    I'm not saying Bush caused all those things, but his relentless pursuit
    of phantom WMDs has not helped the situation.
