I find it funny that in other threads you state that the president has VERY little influence in anything.
It is congress that passes laws and congress that ultimately approves them.
You used this logic to shift the blame for the Iraq war towards congress and away from GWB.
Yet now since it is convenient for you, you give him all the credit.
Do you deny this? And making 25% more than 1999 when the stock market collapse wiped out 5 trillion dollars worth of wealth (your number from another thread) is suppose to convince us that Bush has done great things?
Deny what? That the president has little to do with this? No I dont. And no he doesnt.
The 5 trillion dollar figure is easily verified with Forbes or Fortune, or for a good summary look it up in wiki. There are dozens of references.
Dude I was being sarcastic. I dont think Bush had much, if anything, to do with my increase in wages, my superior growth in my retirement fund, nor my 600% return on Yahoo. Im fine with my wages. If you think 25% is low and you doubled yours, good for you. Im more concerned with my retirement account, which made much, much, much more than that.
What are you getting at here?
