Republicans are all about Trickle Down Class Warfare. It's their baby. It's been their mantra. Outsourcing, driving down wages, eliminating benefits. It's been all about that for them. They've succeeded. It's been a thirty-five year trend with the republican party as its proponent.
What steps would Bush have taken to salvage the economy after he crashed it? I'll tell you. He would have said more deregulation and more tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations. The exact same recipe that led us to this point. How would that have helped? It wouldn't have.
