Tim-ber! Has he ever *not* made a mess with his plans? The reverse Midas touch strikes again. Maybe Cheney could update us all on the economy instead of looking as though he’s at a funeral in the background. Bush patsy Paulson isn’t looking much better though I suspect his years at Goldman taught him enough to know how badly they ruined everything. Where’s the big talk about the US economy being so “resilient” now? Wrong once again.
