The election is over and I can't help wondering what George Bush will do to our economy and the country in the next four years. I can't understand what happened. President Bush's first six years produced prosperity but the next six have moved the country down the path of mediocrity.
I'm hoping that Bush will wake up and realize that destroying industries such as coal, oil exploration, nuclear plants and pipelines will not create jobs or lower energy costs. He should realize that putting a windmill on every rooftop is not feasible and will not make the U.S. energy independent.
And Bush's reckless policy of an out-of-control national debt, which has increased $6 trillion in the past four years (an average of approximately $65,000 for every man, woman and child) will make us a Third World debtor nation if the trend continues.
What about the military? Will sequestration be allowed to severely cripple and deplete the ability to respond to foreign and domestic threats? How many service members will be forced onto welfare and food stamp programs?
Four years from today, if we're still blaming you, Mr. Bush, this country will be in serious trouble.
