(P)resident-elect George W. Bush assured the nation in a televised address Tuesday that "our long national nightmare of peace and prosperity is finally over."Who knew this was not satire? All I can say is that his record is full of so many screw-ups that some of them had to be done on purpose. Just no other way to explain it.
President-elect Bush vows that "together, we can put the triumphs of the recent past behind us."
"My fellow Americans," Bush said, "at long last, we have reached the end of the dark period in American history that will come to be known as the Clinton Era, eight long years characterized by unprecedented economic expansion, a sharp decrease in crime, and sustained peace overseas. The time has come to put all of that behind us."
Bush swore to do "everything in [his] power" to undo the damage wrought by Clinton's two terms in office, including selling off the national parks to developers, going into massive debt to develop expensive and impractical weapons technologies, and passing sweeping budget cuts that drive the mentally ill out of hospitals and onto the street.
During the 40-minute speech, Bush also promised to bring an end to the severe war drought that plagued the nation under Clinton, assuring citizens that the U.S. will engage in at least one Gulf War-level armed conflict in the next four years.
"You better believe we're going to mix it up with somebody at some point during my administration," said Bush, who plans a 250 percent boost in military spending. "Unlike my predecessor, I am fully committed to putting soldiers in battle situations. Otherwise, what is the point of even having a military?"
On the economic side, Bush vowed to bring back economic stagnation by implementing substantial tax cuts, which would lead to a recession, which would necessitate a tax hike, which would lead to a drop in consumer spending, which would lead to layoffs, which would deepen the recession even further.

Under the Glorious Leadership of First Comrade George W Bush will we experience The End Of American Capitalism?
We've already seen the budget busted, national debt outta control, the legitimazation of torture, domestic spying on Americans, gas prices quadruple, industries nationalized, banks fail, the value of the dollar plummet, our Army stretched recklessly thin in Mesopotamia, an American City Drown, 2 members of the Axis of Evil go Nuclear, the Market Crash, and God knows what else I haven't listed.
It takes me back to this Article from the Onion: Bush: 'Our Long National Nightmare Of Peace And Prosperity Is Finally Over'
