Stocks Up, Hurricanes Down: Hail to the Chief?


By John W. Lillpop

While the mainstream media portray America as damn near uninhabitable because of President Bush, those who care should at least consider the “rest of the story” as Paul Harvey would say.

Under the leadership of George W. Bush, the American economy is flourishing. The stock market is setting new records on a daily basis, unemployment is at a level once considered “full employment,” families have more of their own money to spend on what they wish because of tax cuts, inflation is in check, and housing prices are moving from “extravagant exuberance” to more reasonable reflections of fair market value.

As for the global warming pandemic that Al Gore has worked tirelessly to create, the inconvenient fact is that that phenomenon, if it exists at all, is mostly attributable to hot air emitted by Gore and the legion of loony leftists who support the misguided former vice president.

And with just a month to go in the hurricane season, Gore and company are wringing their hands in angst. That is because the Democrats were expecting (hoping for) a non-stop assault on the U.S. mainland by Category 5 storms that could be blamed on environmental malfeasance by the Bush administration.

But to the dismay of the left, there have been zero—I said zero—Bush hurricanes to hit America in 2007.

Which means that liberals have lost another “issue” with which to hoodwink voters.

John Lillpop is a recovering liberal.
