It was still disingenuous, though, and very ironic since the Bush family has done nothing since then but try to increase the power of the federal government. CONGRESS has raises taxes, not the President (note: not the same thing as increasing the power ot the FED), so how can you call the tag ironic? Bush II is easily the biggest spending president since Truman.He's the only president who has signed every spending bill that's crossed his desk.He's not the worst president in U.S. history yet, but not for lack of trying. If he gets another term (heaven help us), he just might creep up the rankings of the all-time worst, although there's probably no way he'll catch Lincoln, FDR, and Truman. Wilson, LBJ, and Trixson, maybe. Congress actually cut taxes during Shrub's term, which is the only good thing he gets credit for.And Herbert Spencer pointed out that no politician should ever get credit for rolling back the state, because it was a politician who rolled up the state to begin with. All pols are evil, but some are less evil than others. VS
