Dubya’s Shadow

From the Great and Powerful Kos, a rumination on the legacies of this Administration that will last long beyond January 20, 2009. I agree with much of it, sadly, particularly the part about allowing Dubya’s tax giveaway to the wealthiest 1% to expire being portrayed as “the largest tax hike in the history of the Universe.” Also, in addition to a pledge to reverse all of Bush’s executive orders, I would also like to hear which candidates, if any, will promise to eliminate forever the use of “signing statements.”

Also: In light of the foregoing, is John McCain really in as good a shape for November as the sinister liberal MSM would have us believe?

  1. The tax cuts (under which mostly middle clsas people got to keep more of what the earned) did not give one cent to anyone, so they were not a “giveaway”. It is not a “gift” to have less of what you earned forcibly taken from you.

    If a mugger takes your wallet and lets you keep your shoes, are the shoes a gift from the mugger?

    As for the executive orders, Bill liked them. Bush II really loved them. I expect Hillary would love them too.

  2. “The tax cuts (under which mostly middle clsas people got to keep more of what the earned)”

    Please cite this for me.

    “As for the executive orders, Bill liked them. Bush II really loved them. I expect Hillary would love them too.”

    And when Clinton did it, Republicans denounced it as an incipient dictatorship. Point is, concentrated executive power is bad no matter whose hands it’s concentrated in.
