"Thursday's annual Census Bureau report on income, poverty and access to health care-the Bureau's principal report card on the well-being of average Americans-closes the books on the economic record of George W. Bush. It's not a record many Republicans are likely to point to with pride. On every major measurement, the Census Bureau report shows that the country lost ground during Bush's two terms. While Bush was in office, the median household income declined, poverty increased, childhood poverty increased even more, and the number of Americans without health insurance spiked. That leaves Bush with the dubious distinction of becoming the ONLY president in recent history to preside over an income decline through TWO presidential terms."
"Oh, wait, uhh... the Census Bureau must be part of the vast liberal conspiracy... and... uhh... I'm not a Republican anymore... I'm an independent. Yeah! That's the ticket! Right!
