One of the legacies of the past 8 years of the Bush administration was a dismantling of the economic/social infrastructure that originated in the "New Deal" era and expanded in the "Great Society" programs during the Kennedy/Johnson era

Link? Example? What are you talking about?

Perhaps you are confusing the last 8 years with the passage of welfare reform under Clinton, one of the very few times a terrible social program was partly undone, and very successfully at that.

Halliburton blah blah blah

It always seems to come back to Halliburton when there is nothing relevant or sensible to say. Did you even know that Bill Clinton gave Halliburton a no-bid contract during the Serbian unpleasantness? And that one of the things that made Halliburton a good choice for Iraq was all the experience it got working for the Clinton administration during his Yugoslavian escapade?
