The Bush Boom

The Bush Boom – How a “Misunderestimated” President Fixed Our Broken Economy

This might just be the most embarrassing book ever written:

Bush Boom

And you can buy a copy from Amazon. Or better yet, just go there to read the many comments, such as these fine examples:

Finally! A book that proves the existence of an alternate universe. Obviously, a rip in the space/time continuum between this universe and the other universe where Bush is presiding over a ‘boom economy opened up and this book fell through. Can there be ANY other explanation?

I bought this book in a bundle along with “19-0: The Historic Championship Season of New England’s Unbeatable Patriots” and both were excellent. Highly recommended!

Many of you know some basic economic facts…

When Bush became president:
DJIA 11,139, S&P 500 1209, Nasdaq Composite: 2139. USD/EUR 1.07
Median household income: $50,007

DJIA 10,365, S&P 500 1106, Nasdaq Composite: 1983. USD/EUR 0.69
Median household income: $49,901

Now a lot of people would say that’s terrible, and note that they’d expect income and stock indexes to rise by at least the rate of productivity growth and inflation combined, but those people are short-sighted.

If that happened, think of all the taxes we’d have to pay? No, instead President Bush has saved us all a fortune on taxes, by ensuring that on average we get poorer every year, and that our investment accounts have no gains, thus sparing us from the capital gains tax.

Finally, a thoughtful explanation of how Bush has cut all our taxes, by destroying all our incomes!

The economy has certainly just had a “Bush Boom” in the past few days. I heard it from miles away!

    Bowyer must feel bad that his book, from only 5 years ago, currently looks more in place on a satire site than on Amazon…

    S&P 500 is $850.12

    BRAVO BUSH! that’s what taking all our money away from us and neglecting education, research, infrastructure and science does!
