We are not in a recession. We are not in the Second Great Depression. We are in the Bush Bankruptcy. And we are in deep trouble because of it, not just financially but on every conceivable level.
The Bush Bankruptcy reached A zenith yesterday when in an atmosphere of attempted bi partisanship that is driving the people who have spent 8 years fighting against Bush, Rush, Dick and their army of conservative bootlickers into fits of frustration…..every single Republican voted against a bill to rescue America and the world from the mess that they have made. Every Single One.
Every single one of the people who were the direct causation of Bush Bankruptcy SPIT on the hand that was extended to them. Obama reached out to these people who have driven this bus off this cliff and are now watching it plunge into this abyss of ruination…and they rejected it.
They rejected political reconciliation, they rejected a financial solution and perhaps worst of all, they rejected their moral obligation to repair the damage that THEY have done. Damage not to some political ideal, or financial philosophy, but to real living and breathing human beings who are suffering because of them. They know the facts, they have seen the figures, they have heard the stories of suffering….and yet they chose to continue down the exact same road that led us to this awful scary place we find ourselves in: The Bush Bankruptcy.
The old stale ideas that they offer are bankrupt, have been proven to be bankrupt in the Real World. The old stale tactics of smear and division that they are using are bankrupt, they have been proven to be bankrupt by the polarized and thus paralyzed political reality they so ably illustrated yesterday, in the midst of a real crisis for our country. And the old stale morality of their ‘government for the rich’ policies have been proven bankrupt by the millions of ordinary Americans who are being thrown out of their middle class homes and middle class jobs….because of that bankrupt approach to ‘governance.’
But perhaps where the Bush Bankruptcy has hurt us all the most is in the subversion of our greater morality. The Bush Bankruptcy has lead us as a people down a road where Americans are now forced to make stunning moral choice….based not on the actual issues of morality, but based on politics.
