Get in the Zone
George W. Bush dredged as low as he could go these past couple of weeks, doing what he does best, shuffling the Fear Cards.
He pulled the College Loan Scare and stabbed Americans in their Queen of Hearts with the promise to end our love affair with the car.
It's not bad enough our vehicles are bleeding us dry at the pump, thanks to George. He now threatens that unless Congress bails out Wall Street, Main Street can plan on no new rides for one long time.
No Loans For You.
Interestingly enough, profits are up at auto supply stores.
Appears us regular folks are repairing their cars instead of buying new.
AutoZone, the largest U.S. auto-parts retailer, reported a 12.2 percent rise in quarterly profit Monday as it expanded stores despite a steep downturn in U.S. auto sales.
So George, that little scare tactic won't work. Guess the Joker is on you.
In fact, I'd rather live in an America full of classic cars than support a government that has all but killed the American dream.
