The International Monetary Fund is demanding that we raise taxes at one of the most difficult times in the history of America. I can’t imagine a more irresponsible idea. Just consider the difficulties that have occurred in the last 5 years.

1. Bill Clinton handed a recession economy to George Bush. Fortunately, Bush understood how to get out of it with tax cuts and we had the mildest recession in history.
2. 2000-election court challenges by Al Gore delayed a smooth transition to a new administration making things more difficult when the first disaster struck.
3. 911-terrorist attacks required a major financial commitment against terror which is on going.
4. Rooting out terror in Afghanistan was and is an on going expense.
5. The threat of WNDs in Iraq set off apoplexy among all politicians...ALL BRANDS...Democrats, Republicans and everyone in between, despite all the hand wringing of hindsight. Action was required.
6. Seven, soon to be 8 (Rita), of the most expensive hurricanes in the history of America have hit during this five year period. (Katrian, Charlie, Ivan, Frances, Jeanne, Allison, Isabel) And don’t pull a Robert Kennedy and claim the signing of the Kyoto treaty would have stopped them. That’s so utterly stupid it illustrates putrid thinking. It is a natural cycle, period. Try the National Weather services for proof.
7. Enron/WorldCom accounting scandals started and were perpetuated during the Clinton years and only came to a head during the Bush Administration.
8. The collapse of the Clinton economic miracle which was nothing more than hot air filling a bubble...that’s why they call it a bubble. It was full of hot air just as Clinton is and was. Seems appropriate that Clinton has had a condom named after him in China....up, up, and away in my beautiful balloon.
9. The Sumatra Tsunami which the world immediately expected America to carry the major financial burden for, which we have. Not like the cheap Saudis, who have made a killing in oil and gave a paltry few million in response.
10. A completely corrupt UN whose leaders stole billions in the food-for-old scheme and that went to the very top of the crooks who run that bogus institution.
11. And one of the worst elements of these horrendous difficulties is the fact, that Democrats, rather than pull together and try to solve the problems, have politicized every one of them making every resolution that much more difficult. They don’t care about America...they care about raw political power.

Needless to say had Clinton responded to the terrorists, responsibly, and not focused all his attention on thong panties, maybe some of these could have been avoided or at the very least reduced. Mogadishu set the tone. Clinton failed to understand the impact. In fact he didn’t have a clue. He was engrossed in “cigars” and blue dresses.

So to read the IMF is calling for America to raise taxes at this difficult time for America is sick. Their understanding of how to handle debt is zilch and their effort to undermine American’s economic success is simply an effort to spread their own misery.

Tell them to stuff it Mr. President. They deserve it.

Like your points here.It's kind of ironic how these facts are swept under the table and how some people divert their focus from these facts and use the negative energy to do their bashing.
Let's not confuse them with the facts is all I'm saying.

It’s amazing to me how many catastrophic problems with which Bush has
had to deal during his administration, compared to Clinton.
And, of course, they’re all Bush’s fault.

Ran across an interesting fact last night. There were 4 category-5
hurricanes during a 13 month period (Sept. 60 to Oct 61) of John F.
Kennedy’s presidency. I didn’t hear one complaint about them being his fault.

You “negative energy” comment is interesting. It’s diverting their attention from
coming up with good alternative policies. I also think they’re already confused
by the facts.

They're just pathetic NG. It just sickens me to listen to their jabber.Maybe it's because they are too young and naive. They have too much time on their hands.
