    Our Failed Economy

    Discussion started by villain - Nov 18, 2004

    I heard this guy on Majority Report on Air America Radio last night and now I understand why Bush is bombing the economy. Because the less the dollar is worth the less Bush owes OPEC. OPEC recently wanted to change their payments to only accept Euros which is up on the dollar now. But that was struck down. Bush is tanking the economy so he can save money. How can anyone stand this guy?
