Not only is Bush a liar, but his trifecta joke is sick. Carl Rove has been using terroism as a way to silence critics, which is wagging the dog in a much bigger way than the man they love to hate ever did. But Bush keeps telling his sick trifecta joke, even though it's a blatant lie, and it's offensive to almost every body!
‘You know, when I was running for president, in Chicago, somebody said, would you ever have deficit spending? I said, only if we were at war, or only if we had a recession, or only if we had a national emergency. Never did I dream we’d get the trifecta.’ — PRESIDENT [sic] BUSH
Jonathan Chait's article in the New Republic was the first to point out this blatant, sick lie. Since then, the White House hasn't been able to come up with a date and time for this alleged quote. Neither has anyone else. Meanwhile, the deficit grows. Social Security is being raided to pay for tax cuts to the rich. The US is selling treasuries, mostly to rich people, and we have to pay this back, with interest. So, Bush's rich buddies get tax breaks, buy treasuries, and collect the interest on the deficits they caused. Meanwhile, anytime anyone tries to criticize him for it, they just announce some new vague threat of terror to take everyone's attention off the truth. Can you imagine the screams if Clinton were doing this? Oh, the hypocrasy....
