... it is just that the dollar sucks. And currency is 1/2 of every transaction.

I can't take you seriously unless you admit Dubya did a damn fine job of this, too.

Putting aside for a moment my deep seeded emotional need to have you take me seriously, I was frequently critical of Bush's fiscal/spending policies during his presidency, and after. NCLB, Medicare Part B etc. were all bad policy that were all debt that hurt the dollar. The accessibility of cheap credit to unworthy borrowers hurt as well, though neither was caused by Bush.
