From page 2 of the White House's Highlights of Accomplishments and Results (of) The Administration of President George W. Bush 2001-2009 (15 meg pdf)

That optics of this (along with the section title) is horrible.

ALSO: From page 17:
When our Nation faced an unprecedented inancial crisis in September,the President called for an unprecedented response.He rallied Members of Congress to enact a $700 billion rescue plan to avert a global financial meltdown.
He was hardly a player. It was all Hank Paulson and Ben Bernanke (and Congress).

From page 18:
After-tax per-capita income increased 12 ercent from 2000 o 2007.
That's almost certainly not inflation-adjusted.

Page 25 consists of only this picture:


Page 28:
The President worked to protect our forests.Forest Initiative. This initiative improved and protected more than 27 million acres of Federal forests and grasslands and helped protect communities from catastrophic fires.
In other words, if you chop down a lot of trees, there's a lower chance of a catastrophic fire.

Page 50:
Directed Unprecedented Preparations for a Smooth Presidential Transition
Led the most comprehensive and forward-leaning effort in modern history to facilitate a smooth and effective transition.
That last item is like a student padding a report by saying that the report was put in a binder.


If he wanted to prepare for the transition "Democrat" style, he would have all of the "O"s removed from the white house computer keyboards.

Somehow I don't think he'll do that.

I prefer obscene.

You still believe that urban myth?

Whether the 'W' key story was true or not, it was a good story and a good joke. A repeat with the 'O' would not be very original but also no reason for condemnation in my opinion.
Bill Clinton was guilty of making the "extraordinary rendition" popular (and he should have been impeached for that not the blowjob), Chain-Eye/Shrub went so much farther that they should be relieved of their heads, not just office.

Re: "After tax per capita income increased 12% from 2000 to 2007."

I smelled a statistical rat and then I read the following that I cut and pasted from a meteor blades post at dailykos...

Portion of all U.S. income gains during the Bush Administration that have gone to the top 1 percent of earners: 3/4

And what gains us little people made (also from meteor blades)...

Percentage change since 2001 in the average amount U.S. workers spend on out-of-pocket medical expenses: +172

And I am stilll waiting for pictures of missing "W" keys. If the deed was done, they would have piled them up and paraded the photographers around to demonstrate how awful the Clintonites were.

what? no photos from "mission accomplished" with bush's testicles artfully arranged by his stylist?

Now if the outgoing administration would swap the "w" and "o" keys on all their keyboards, that would be a practical joke I could support.

I used to use a PDP-11 minicomputer in high school where the login prompt was:

Please say hello:

You would have to type "hello" and press enter. The joke was to swap the "h" and "j" keys. The touch typists wouldn't even notice, but the hunt and peck typists would just type "jello" over and over until they figured it out.

Ah, high school.

Thread hijack complete.
