The Bush Economic Record

I liked how Carpetbagger broke down the Bush Economic Record, as compared to the President’s pronouncement at the CPAC Conference.

Here’s an example:

* “[I]increased revenues from that growth have put us on track to a balance our budget by 2012.” First, we’re nowhere near “on track” to balance the budget by 2012; Bush’s own OMB projects deficits of over $400 billion in each of the next two years. Second, the increased-revenue argument sounds an awful lot like the ridiculous “tax fairy” nonsense Republicans are so fond of.
