Now I already know what some people are going to say (because you can't defend this legacy, and the facts are the facts) -- "but George Bush isn't running for Preznit!"
Ah, I say, but only the Republican candidates -- including all three front-runners -- have explicitly promised to maintain the policies that brought us to this point. The Democrats may very well be the spineless whimpering cavemeisters who's love of bureaucracy is matched only by their pathetic need to "make friends" and "compromise" with Republcians the right-wingers paint them as, but they have explicitly promised to change these policies.
They win. Discussion over. Case closed.
