Are We Getting Bush's Third Term?

When George Bush became president, he tried hard to give us the illusion of robust financial times by spending every penny Bill Clinton left for him. When that money ran out, he started cutting taxes on the rich, and began using America's credit card. With trillions of dollars of credit, George Bush was able to keep people working for a little bit over seven years, but then our ability to borrow ran out. Now we are in terrible straights, and what do you think the next President is going to do to get us back on track? Well, this is how the New York Times thinks Barack Obama will handle things.
So, like George Bush, Barack Obama is going to give us the illusion that he knows what to do. And like Bush, Obama is going to continue to cut taxes on the rich, and spend money we don't have to keep people employed.
It is a valid question to ask. Are we getting a third Bush term? For sure, President Barack Obama is not going to bring any change to Washington or to America.
