Heckuva job, Mr. Bush.

The word for the day, children, is squander.

Mr. Bush has managed to squander the budget surplus, our credibility, our competence, the value of the dollar, our military, our moral standing, our ideals, our Constitutional heritage, our childrens' birthright, respect for the law and the economy in 8 short years. Although he had plenty of help, especially with that last one.

We have gone from a democracy to a plutocracy to a kleptocracy, all in a blink.

The cartoon is by the great Pat Oliphant, an Aussie by birth and my favorite political cartoonist since the mid-70's, even when he was skewering my guys.

As much as I hope the grown-ups win in November, I pity whoever it is who inherits the America George W Bush has left us.

And I do consider this. Can Obama turn it around? Wouldn't it be better to let McCain go down on the Bush ship? But then there's the rest of us to fret over. So I say, we still have to go for it.

Bush was a Sunday school teacher compared to what obama has done and is still doing to America..

BTW, there's no vaseline to ease the screwing obama is doing...
