Bush 393,000 Average Jobs per Year; Clinton 2.9 Million
Here are some statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. All are for the period from January 2001 - July 2005. Add three zeros to all the numbers. These numbers illustrate how bad the job creation statistics of Bush are. The industries that have increased workers are emboldened.WaPo Says BushCo Lowering Expectations
The Bush administration is significantly lowering expectations of what can be achieved in Iraq, recognizing that the United States will have to settle for far less progress than originally envisioned during the transition due to end in four months, according to U.S. officials in Washington and Baghdad.
The United States no longer expects to see a model new democracy, a self-supporting oil industry or a society where the majority of people are free from serious security or economic challenges, U.S. officials say.
"What we expected to achieve was never realistic given the timetable or what unfolded on the ground," said a senior official involved in policy since the 2003 invasion. "We are in a process of absorbing the factors of the situation we're in and shedding the unreality that dominated at the beginning."

Extreme Sunday's Amnesia On Anti-Catholicism
For those of you unaware, Cindy Sheehan is the woman who is camped out in front of W's ranch while he's on his extended vacation. Her son was a soldier killed in Iraq, and she wants an opportunity to ask Herr Shrub a few questions.

This one is not KOS related, but I was reminded of it yesterday. Evidently the Fundies want their very own state, and not just a 'red state' - one so red the shade is called 'Blood O' the Lamb' red. It's called Christian Exodus, and it's aiming to eat South Carolina. Personally, I'd like my own state of likeminded peoples, we can call it 'Heathenotopia' and the capital city shall be called 'Pervy'. I'll see your fatwa and raise you one jihad!
