FITSNews – April 2, 2008 – Seriously, we can’t tell you people how much we miss Bill Clinton and Alan Greenspan. Or the 90’s in general, for that matter. Smells Like Teen Spirit? Hell yeah it did, but it also smelled like capital gains tax cuts, record employment and steady income growth … well, for those of you not living in ass-backward South Carolina.

Anyway, after a half-decade of “Republican” rule in Washington (and the $3 trillion that GOP morons like Trent Lott and Ted Stevens added to our national debt), it’s no surprise that there’s a stream of sh*tty economic news coming out of our nation’s capital:

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke acknowledged for the first time that a U.S. recession is possible because homebuilding, employment and consumer spending will deteriorate.

“It now appears likely that real gross domestic product will not grow much, if at all, over the first half of 2008 and could even contract slightly,” Bernanke told Congress’s Joint Economic Committee today.

Well duh. This is what happens when you tell families and small business across the country to basically go and f*ck themselves as far as their bottom lines are concerned. Seriously, enough with Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Dumber. Bring back Clinton and Greenspan. Honestly, they can blow each other in the Oval Office for all we care. Just cut our friggin’ taxes and stop spending so damn much of our money.

Oh, and that goes extra special for you Republican idiots here in South Carolina.
