When some of my relatives crow about voting for Romney & Ryan in November, I say: Of course you were all living large during Bush’s 8 years – investing in war does tend to fatten your wallets, huh? Oligarchy rocks, huh? Buddies of Grover Norquist? Just Sunday Christians, huh? Not really into WWJD – there is no get-as-wealthy-as-possible commandment, but there is an eye of a needle parable! It will take 8 years to clean up 8 years of financial mess that almost bankrupted the USA – despite the Norquist pledge the country has rebounded, it has a ways to go and the GOTP is not the party to take us to prosperity.
