“I want my country back!”

It’s been the battle-cry as teabaggers take to the streets with their misspelled, angry signs. But back to WHAT, exactly, dipshits??

Via DemoUnderground, ‘Closing the book’ on the Dictator-tot legatude’:

While Bush was in office, the median household income declined, poverty increased, childhood poverty increased even more, and the number of Americans without health insurance spiked.

Oh. Well, at least it can't have been as bad as when that murdering rapist Bill Clinton was in office, right?
Wrong.
Under Clinton, the median income increased 14 per cent. Under Bush it declined 4.2 per cent.

Under Clinton the total number of Americans in poverty declined 16.9 per cent; under Bush it increased 26.1 per cent.

Under Clinton the number of children in poverty declined 24.2 per cent; under Bush it increased by 21.4 per cent.

Under Clinton, the number of Americans without health insurance remained essentially even (down six-tenths of one per cent); under Bush it increased by 20.6 per cent.
But… but… Bush kept us safer! Well, except for that whole September 11th thing! And the anthrax attacks! And the time he partied while Katrina wiped out thousands!
