The ambitions of Bush

According to Gary Younge in Monday's Guardian the UN census bureau's latest findings show that since Dubbya came to office the poverty rate has risen by 9%, the number of people without health insurance has risen by 12%, and real median household income has been "stagnant". Meanwhile in the same issue the Chickenhawk-in-Chief of the USA muses on his retirement plans: worth $20 million already he dreams of making money: "I'll give some speeches to replenish the old coffers...I don't know what my dad gets - its more than 50-70 (thousand dollars per speech)...Clinton's making a lot of money..." . What poverty of ambition, what smallness of imagination, what an utter chickenshit chickenhawk.
