GWB came into office with the largest budget surplus in US history. WJC had left behind a mountain of money and a closet full of skeletons.
Before Americans knew it bush had squandered the casgh and replaced sex scandals with genocide and torture. So the US voter naturally re elected him. Then Cheney shot a friend in the face, the weapons of mass destruction were harder to find than Monica's denim dress and everybody in the world teetered on the edge of bankruptcy.
Bush will soon be gone and McCain will not be far be gone behind him. But the one thing Americans and Iraqis know about Bush is that he can make a budget surplus disappear faster than the world trade center.
So the Iraqi puppet government saddled with a giant surplus have been taught to say: " American GI buddy, show me how to spend money..." Bush flew to baghdad repotedly carrying suitcases of fundraising brochures for the George W Bush Presidential Picture Book Library and Cattle Ranch.
