| - The Bush Era Has Been an 8-Year-Long Madoff-Style Ripoff|
Frank Rich, The New York Times: “It will be easier for us and O-
bama to push for a bold agenda if we demand accountability for the
robbery and theft of the Bush years. Three days after the world
learned that $50 billion may have disappeared in Bernie Madoff’s
Ponzi scheme, The Times led its front page of Dec. 14 with the
revelation of another $50 billion rip-off. This time the vanished loot
belonged to American taxpayers. That was our collective contribu-
tion to the $117 billion spent (as of mid-2008) on Iraq reconstruction
— a sinkhole of corruption, cronyism, incompetence and outright
theft that epitomized Bush management at home and abroad.”
we all... can only blame ourselves, and deserve our collective fates.”
