Bush's (Domestic) Blunder # 56,798

Bush's abject failures in foreign policy are getting all the headlines.

So we know that Iraq is FUBAR thanks to Bush, and that he has let The Taliban BACK into Afghanistan, and that he basically let Israel open a can of whip ass on Lebanese civilians, while he let North Korea get a nuclear program.

What about his domestic agenda? How is that working out? For a little taste of how he is doing on the homefront, read Tommywonk on how the IRS is cutting the staff that investigate fraud and abuse among the wealthiest taxpayers.

Here is his domestic policy. It's from a times select article.

The new figures show that from 2003 to 2004, the latest year for which there is data, the richest Americans pulled far ahead of everyone else. In the space of that one year, real average income for the top 1 percent of households — those making more than $315,000 in 2004 — grew by nearly 17 percent. For the remaining 99 percent, the average gain was less than 3 percent, and that probably makes things look better than they really are, since other data, most notably from the Census Bureau, indicate that the average is bolstered by large gains among the top 20 percent of households. In all, the top 1 percent of households enjoyed 36 percent of all income gains in 2004, on top of an already stunning 30 percent in 2003.

Remember his speech to the rich about them being his real base?
Joe sixpack and the fundies who revere Bush don't get that, they are all being left behind.
If Bush was allowed to run for third term his campaign solgan could be:
