Just to put the economic challenge facing the new American administration in context, new estimates have the US running a one-trillion dollar deficit for the next fiscal year. Yes, it’s insanity, but adjectives aside, it makes it very difficult for Barack Obama to perform the FDR miracle.
Don’t let Bush shyly smile his way out of the office and suggest that you speak kindly of him as he leaves, this is his doing. He is, and always was, a piss-ant, this should not ever be forgotten. The damage he has done to the world’s economy will be felt probably for the rest of my lifetime.
