Rove May Find `It's the Economy, Stupid' Won't Work

"In a recent speech, Rove argued that Bush's policies of tax cuts and trade agreements had pulled the nation out of recession, created millions of jobs, boosted productivity and increased disposable income. That record can help lead Republicans to victory in November, Rove said in the May 15 speech at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington."

"In his AEI speech, Rove, 55, emphasized the creation of 5 million jobs in recent years. He also said Bush's tax cuts have stimulated growth, making up for revenue lost with lower rates. A tax reduction on stock dividends to 15 percent from 40 percent prompted the biggest companies in the Standard & Poor's 500 Index to raise dividend payments on 725 occasions, he said. That money is 'going into retirement funds and individual retirement accounts and people's pocketbooks,' he said." [

"I am beginning to suspect that Karl has trouble telling the truth."

Fitz, it's the one armed bandit defense speech. Now, it the tax cuts that cause the economy to boom in this country all of the sudden. Porkrind and the Gerbil and company have really ran out of trump cards to explain why the economy is growing when we know it is bull. The Administration's mindset are really in Disneyland! Everyone knows that the tax cuts really benefited the wealthy and businesses. People need to look at the portfolio of the oil companies, CEO, businesses, and certain politicans. For 5 years, the Gerbil has always used the Robin Hood strategy: steal from the poor and give to the rich. Porkrind can say all he can about the economy but anyone can see how really this country is doing by the number of people unemployed, the number of job outsourced, number of people with no health insurance, etc. The strategy that the Gerbil Administration and the Gerbil's brain use are no different from the strategy that King George in England used to tax the people.

I don't think the public is buying it.

What about these factors:

1) As of 05/25/2006 our National Debt is $8,348,185,073,893.70. That is $8.4 Trillion!

2) As of March, 2006 the Nation’s Trade Deficit in goods and services is $62.0 billion

3)We have rising fuel prices and record profits for the oil companies

4)Interest rates are rising

5) In the last year the household savings rate was negative for the first time

6) Escalating health care costs

7) Thirty million American workers, 1 out of every 4, make less than $8.70 an hour. These workers, even the ones who work full time year-round, do not earn enough to lift a family of four out of poverty

8) With a minimum wage at about $5.15, many individuals are forced to work two or three jobs to just get by

Several random, but somewhat related comments:

I worked two jobs under Clinton and I work three jobs now under W. Bush. I do not expect anything from Social Security by the time I retire (I thought that under Clinton, too). Now, with everything going on with pensions from Enron and United Airlines to my state underfunding my pension by billions, I no longer expect any pensions either.

All I ask is some hope that whatever it is I paid into something, I can get back. Is that too much to ask?

Forget kids--I cannot afford any kids, just the cat.

Hastert thinks there are a lot of people who do not pay taxes. I think his office needs a mass mailing of photocopies of their 1040s . . .

The national debt scares me. It is way too high and if I recall, there are now a lot of Chinese banks that 'own' it?? Is that correct?

I suppose it would be too much to ask that CEOs *not* be paid more than 50 times more salary than their lowest paid employee. That would be fantasy land.

How can we take back our country and protect our middle and working class poor from the greedy people at the top?

Now, I know that Rove is on acid because the large number of people don't have an IRA or any type of retirement funds. Rove is certain on a another planet. If a person works for a company, the company may provide a 401K plan. But, we do know that a alot of companies are matching less of the employees' 401k or none at all. Many compnies are doing away from a 401k plan.. As far as a IRA, mpost average people cannot afford an IRA especially a Roth IRA. As far as traditional IRA, people can participate in that but as chimpcoulter said is that "in the last year the household savings rate was negative for the first time." So, that speech that Rove gave sounds good to the wealthy but certainly not a topic of discussion to the middle class and the poor. The 2% of the population that are wealthy are financial intelligence. Whereas 98% of the population which represent the middle class and the poor are simply trying to get by and living from paycheck to paycheck. Rove's speech sounds like exactly what Robert Kiyosaki, the author, of Rich Dad, Poor Dad says in his book. Rove wants to continue to program the average American into a poor thinking mentality. But, Rove doesn't understand that people are waking up and not buying the beans that the Gerbil and company have been feeding to the American people for 5 years.

"Lex Luthor's approval ratings are set for a nosedive. Comic books are now “tackling topics such as terrorism, war, and civil liberties as a heavy dose of 21st-century reality seeps into their alternate universe.” For example, “Superman and archvillain US President Lex Luthor tangled in 2003 over plans to invade the imaginary Middle Eastern country of Qurac, which was linked to weapons of mass destruction.”

Here is more about the comic books:

Superheroes Span Red-Blue Divide
Comic Book Icons Like Superman & Spiderman Are Tackling Politics

"In "Civil War," a sprawling new Marvel series, superheroes like Spider-Man and Captain America must choose sides over whether the government should be allowed to register them. In a comic book called "Ex Machina," a 9/11 hero-turned-mayor copes with political hot buttons and his own superpowers. Not too long ago, Iron Man became secretary of defense under President George W. Bush. In a separate comic, Superman debated the invasion of a dangerous Middle Eastern country."

"Comics have always had one foot in reality, but it's probably been more so in recent times," says Alex Segura, spokesman for DC Comics."

Someone passed along an article about the Gerbil implanting fake news. This is whatI found interesting is the sponsor of the commericals and T.V. station involved in the fake news. And I am not surprised:

"The range of Video News Release (VNR) is wide. Among items provided by the Bush administration to news stations was one in which an Iraqi-American in Kansas City was seen saying "Thank you Bush. Thank you USA" in response to the 2003 fall of Baghdad. The footage was actually produced by the State Department, one of 20 federal agencies that have produced and distributed such items."

"Many of the corporate reports, produced by drugs manufacturers such as Pfizer, focus on health issues and promote the manufacturer's product. One example cited by the report was a Hallowe'en segment produced by the confectionery giant Mars, which featured Snickers, M&Ms and other company brands. While the original VNR disclosed that it was produced by Mars, such information was removed when it was broadcast by the television channel - in this case a Fox-owned station in St Louis, Missouri."

In regards to the economy, Pinocchio, chew on these numbers:

From American Research Group, Inc.

"A total of 75% of Americans rate the national economy as bad, very bad, or terrible, up from 67% in April, while 59% say the national economy is getting worse and 60% say the national economy will be worse a year from now.

When it comes to assessing their personal financial situations, 61% of Americans say their personal financial situations are getting worse and 54% say they expect to be worse off a year from now."


From Washington Post-ABC News poll:

"By 2 to 1 or better, the public preferred Democrats to handle gas prices and health care. And by double-digit margins, they preferred Democrats to deal with education (23 percentage points), the budget (20 points), the economy (18 points) and protecting privacy (15 points)."

To add on Chimpcoulter's comments. That is why the Gerbil's "no child left behind program" is full of it. Kids and students are becoming uneducated in life because the Gerbil decided to chip away at the one thing that parents want for kids: a good education. With the one who who come out of school, a majority of them are still uneducated of life:

"Nearly 90% of college grads surveyed in 2004* reported that they were “prepared” for the responsibility of credit cards… over half (56%) of them didn’t know the APR (annual percentage rate of interest) on those cards."

Bush hires LIARS with our tax dollars

It's not bad enough that the man lies US into wars which he regularly sends our children and neighbors to die for, he has the gall to use our tax dollars to pay hired-liars to do his dirty work while he's busy playing golf.

[T]he U.S. hired a number of public relations companies to put a positive face on the reconstruction effort [in Afghanistan]. One of them is the Washington, D.C.-based Rendon Group, which the report says has “close ties to the Bush Administration.”

The Pentagon has awarded Rendon more than $56 million in contracts [!!!] since September 11, 2001, “as part of a coordinated effort to disseminate positive press about America and its military in the developing world.”

The contracts call for “tracking foreign reporters” and “pushing (and sometimes paying) news outlets worldwide to run articles and segments favorable to United States interests.”

Hi everyone -
Very interesting stuff today.

Obviously the smoke and mirror platform is beginning to dissolve. I'm sure that "on paper", things can be made to appear good for the economy however, there are HUGE deficits (read: debt) to be paid off.

Overall the economy gives the appearance of being good, solid growth, etc. Again, this is all smoke and mirrors.

Numbers can be manipulated to appear any way you want them to. Rover is a master at the fine art of double-speak (well ok, so is Bush, it's just no one can understand him).

Our economy appears good however, 401(k)'s that dropped 75% have only regained approximately 35-40% of their value. That is just the tip of the iceberg.

Someone (our chldren/grandchildren) will be saddled with this huge uncontrolled mess and of course, permanent bases in Iraq AND those pesky little internment camps that Haliburton is building in the US of A.

Because Bushie/Rover/Cheney/and Condilocks will be gone and their messes will remain.

So - on paper, those of you that feel rich or good about Bush's economy? It isn't real - you've lost value, we've lost jobs (sure we've also grown jobs, but NOT what would be expected over the timeframe studied).

Perhaps, instead of contributing to a pension, we should be buying Euros? And stuffing them under the mattress?

I retired in 2000 anticipating a Bush Presidency knowing that Bush would bring the economy back from the impending recession that was coming due to the Clinton faux economy. It has been all for the better ever since Bush took office. His tax breaks have created one of the strongest economies known to man. Hell, the economy is so good the Democrats are suggesting we can't get enough workers without importing them from Mexico. I just heard the other day that 4.7% unemployment is full employment. My stock market portfolio has almost doubled in the last 5 years. Even $3 a gallon gasoline can't even seem to dampen this roaring economy. Yes, Bush has done a fine job bringing us out of recession territory to the booming one we have now. Thank you Mr. Bush, job well done.

The economy is NOT a strong one. It is lopsided and the only thing roaring are oil futures.

The only thing that will prove how wrong you are, is the passage of time. Unfortunately in the meantime, many many people in this country are hurting badly.

Tax cuts ARE nice sure, but not at the expense of breaking the back of everyone else.

Bush is evil - it has been speculated that John Bolton is the anti-Christ (altho I'll vote for Cheney).

The government has actually taken in more revenue with the tax cuts. It isn't tax cuts that have hurt us, it is run away spending by congress. It is a proven fact that with tax breaks, especially capital gains tax cuts, the government takes in more money. We just spend more as we take in more.

I did read about the decision by the judges to limited the rights for lawsuits for whistleblowers. It is truly ashamed that the whistleblowers not to be protected. The judges have allowed big businesses to rule the school. But, I am not surprised by this. Certain judges were put in to chip away on certain issues by the Gerbil and company. The Gerbil is trying to chip away on the rights of journalists and reporters and not the whistleblowers.. This also makes it differcult for ex-CIA officer and a whistleblower named "John Doe" to fight his lawsuit against former CIA director Porter Goss. Goss has tried to get this man's lawsuit dimissed more than 3 times.

"Pointing to data indicating that 99 percent of the estate tax is paid by the highest-earning 5 percent of Americans, a report released by the Democrats indicates that CEO's of major oil companies stood to gain significantly from a repeal. Democrats' estimates put oil company gains at at least a "$200 million windfall." The family of one oil executive, Lee Raymond (the former ExxonMobil CEO, pictured above left), alone stood to receive a tax break worth over $160 million."
"Democrats have also once again issued a 2005 Government Reform Committee report indicating that repealing the estate tax repeal would save the President, Vice President, and 11 cabinet members anywhere from $91 - 344 million.
The estimated cost of the repeal, according to Democrats, is $1 trillion for the years 2011-2021."

"The increase for Americans abroad was added at the last minute to the $69 billion tax cut legislation that was signed last week. Americans living overseas paid almost $3.5 billion in United States income taxes in 2001, the latest year for which data is available, according to the Internal Revenue Service.
The change, which is retroactive to the beginning of 2006, is expected to raise taxes on Americans abroad by $2.1 billion over the next 10 years."

There is someone that is running for office in California for State Treasurer name Joe Dunn who has been investigating the manipulation of the electricity since day one. I was passed long his office number for a his campaign(thanks to my colleague in CA). I spoke with a person in the headquarters concerning Enron. And I ask the question which is one everyone's mind: is there going to be an investigation in California concerning the Bush Administration and Kenneth Lay ties. The answer is yes. I was told by his associate in the office that his goal is try get back the stolen money taking from California from Enron. Yes, Mr. Dunn knows all about the ties with Bush, Lieberman, Arnold, and others. They know! When Dunn gets into office as State Treasurer, that issue in on top of his list. I am now on his distribution list for info. Here is more information about Joe Dunn:

"Joe led California's investigation into the energy crisis, which harmed millions of Californians and cost taxpayers billions. He uncovered how Enron and other energy pirates were gaming the market to rip off California."

"Joe's Senate investigation helped unearth the infamous Enron memo that described in detail how the state was plundered and which led to civil penalties and criminal indictments of rogue energy traders. Joe was dubbed the "Man Who Cracked Enron" by California Lawyer Magazine."

This is for Jackie!

You had emailed me about your congressman Ken Calvert. I hate to break it to you. But, you may want to check more into him because he may have ties with Cunningham:

11:27 a.m. May 15, 2006

"LOS ANGELES – Many of the real estate holdings of Congressman Ken Calvert and his partner are near transportation projects he supported with federal appropriations, it was reported Monday."

"As politicians deal with intensifying scrutiny since the corruption scandal involving former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday that Calvert earmarked funds for Riverside County projects near properties he sold for a profit during the current real estate boom."

"One of those deals involved a four-acre parcel near March Air Reserve Base. Calvert, R-Corona, and a partner paid $550,000 for the parcel before selling it less than a year later for nearly $1 million."

"While owning the land, Calvert used the legislative process known as earmarking to secure $8 million for a planned freeway interchange 16 miles from the property, and an additional $1.5 million to support commercial development of the area around the airfield, the newspaper said."


“Although never mentioning the $400,000 Cunningham accepted for his "help" with getting Bush to promise crooked developer and Republican funder, Thomas Kontogiannis a presidential pardon as he leaves office, Rozen does bring up the Kontogiannis connection. "The third alleged co-conspirator in the Cunningham plea agreement, Thomas T. Kontogiannis, a Long Island–based, Greek-born financier and real-estate developer, was picked up in Athens by the private plane flying Cunningham and [Congressman Ken] Calvert to Saudi Arabia in December 2004. Accompanying the group -- and paying for the trip -- was Ziyad S. Abduljawad, a naturalized American of Saudi origin living in San Diego. Calvert’s press spokesman told the Prospect that no staff members went on the trip, during which the congressmen met with 'the former Crown Prince, who is now King,' as well as several other Saudi ministers and business leaders...”

BTW, America blog mentions Calvert's name to be investigated on.

The math is simple. The Dow was hovering around 7000 after 9/11, It has been on a slide lately but is still over 11000. Unless you invested in pork rinds you should have done quite well in the past 5 years. If you are a passbook saver then you haven't done quite so well because interest rates have been at an all time low which is good for the borrower but not so good for the passbook saver.

And I unfortunately, live in AZ. Yes the land of Kyl and of Hayworth (2nd Highest Abramoff recipient for $$$) last but not least, John "flipflopflip" McCain (who will bring all of you a draft the day after he is sworn in - he REALLY REALLY wants a draft!!!)

We're trying down here - looks like Kyl may actually have some competition which is hurting him. But he's a huge corporate hog so the companies LOVE HIM.

Hayworth is in bed with the tribes. No other way to describe it - (no one else would bed him!)

I forgot that you live in AZ. You got it worse: McCain. From what I heard, the Maverick is not doing good. He is also in hot water.. It is really ashamed about McCain. I had a lot of respect for him. He has turned to buttkisser of the Gerbil and so did Lieberman. And I certainly don't want to talk about the buffoon Lieberman. I have a few friends in Connecticut. If you mention Lieberman's name, you will get a hair cut! And I did hear that Ned Lamont that is rinning against Lieberman is doing well. Hang in there in Arizona. I have a feeling McCain is on his way out..

Al Gore’s fortune and soaring Google stock could help him launch a White House race anytime he likes, Democratic insiders tell the New York Post’s Deborah Orin.

Gore has served as a senior adviser to Google since 2001.

One Democrat says Gore “could wait until a month before and just drop” $50 million “in to launch a race. He’s got way more than enough money to buy this thing at any point in the process.”

I don't believe McCain runs this year. But he's definitely pulled a Frist (yay). He has lost all credibility in his own state, frankly he makes a lot of people who did support him squirrley!

His alliance with Jerry Falwell killed him, just like Frist diagnosing Terri Schiavo via videotape. Frist will never be able to take that back and I'm hoping that McCain's alliance with Falwell will be his "gettysburg".

Frist is done .. and hopefully McCain finished himself too - I know the blogs have torn him to shreds (you'd be so proud of me, I send them to him all the time...cut and paste all those nasty personal attacks!!!) I do it openly under my own name and he responds to every single email with a letter.

He's FURIOUS with the blogs, Huffpo to begin with because they showed him for the schmaltz he truly is and exposed him. They constantly post the picture of Bush and McCain doing the BIG HUG which is nauseating!

Plus they came out in support of his recent heckler!!!

As for Lieberman, I think he's finished. He isn't a Dem, and pretty much everyone in CT sees that.

What these guys don't see is that people remember lies, and duplicity, and stupidity.

I guess it's the old "what goes around, comes around" theory...amazingly it works!!!

Frist been finished ever since he gave that quack so-called examination of Terri Schiavo. That finished Frist. He certainly doesn't have a leg to stand on.

Home ownership is at an all time high.

7:16 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau suggest that homeownership is affordable for many – evidenced also by five consecutive record years for home sales.

In the fourth quarter of 2005, the national homeownership rate was 69.0 percent, compared to the all-time high of 69.2 percent in the fourth quarter of 2004.

In addition, Census Bureau data shows that foreign-born Americans are just as likely to buy homes as native-born Americans, demonstrating that homeownership is a high priority for immigrants as well. In fact, after 30 years in the United States, immigrants have a higher homeownership rate than the national average.

Based on current trends and underlying demand, it’s estimated the overall U.S. homeownership rate could exceed 70 percent by 2013.

In Iraq and Afghanistan, when “suck it up” fails to snap a soldier out of depression or panic, the Army turns to drugs. “Soldiers I talked to were receiving bags of antidepressants and sleeping meds in Iraq, but not the trauma care they needed,” says Steve Robinson, a Defense Department intelligence analyst during the Clinton administration.

Sometimes sleeping pills, antidepressants and tranquilizers are prescribed by qualified personnel. Sometimes not. Sgt. Georg Anderas Pogany told Salon that after he broke down in Iraq, his team sergeant told him “to pull himself together, gave him two Ambien, a prescription sleep aid, and ordered him to sleep.”

Other soldiers self-medicate. “We were so junked out on Valium, we had no emotions anymore,” Iraq vet John Crawford told “Fresh Air” host Terry Gross. He and others in his unit in Iraq became addicted to Valium.

The issues around mental health and medication are exacerbated for the more than 378,000 troops who have served multiple tours to Iraq and Afghanistan. Post traumatic stress disorders (PTSD) caused by a previous tour are cropping up in later ones.
