Time Magazine Editors Crazy

Time's person of the year is President George W. Bush.

Imagine that, George W. Bush. Person of the year.

I think we're seeing Bush's pact with Satan coming to fruition.

Can someone explain to me, aside from the war on terror and tax cuts, what the Bush administration has accomplished? Anything? His administration has borrowed away our children's futures with seemingly endless government spending, and now we have record deficits, the dollar isn't worth shit, the trade deficit is at an all-time high, and Bush is person of the year?

But hey, if George Tenet can be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for heading an agency responsible for intelligence failures that have led us to war, I guess it's no surprise that Bush would be Time's choice for person of the year.

Under Bush's leadership, the number of people living in poverty has increased, the number of people without medical insurance has increased, and life in the United States is not better than it was four years ago.

If Bush gets his way, Social Security will become partially privatized. What has not been explained is how we're going to cover the estimated $2 trillion to switch to privatization. Bush will not raise taxes, but you can bet he'll borrow the money. Which means our grandchildren will be paying for Bush's reckless spending. Thanks, George.

Meanwhile, in Iraq, the success story continues as insurgents exploded car bombs in Karbala and Najaf, killing at least 62 people and wounding at least 120. Also, in Baghdad, three Iraqi election officials were killed when dozens of gunmen swarmed the vehicle and executed the officials in the middle of the street.

And, of course, Osama bin Laden, previously wanted "dead or alive," remains at large.

All in all, a great success story for team Bush. What's next, the Nobel peace prize?
