Now that President Bush is re-elected, I am trying to figure out exactly what this man has done for our Nation.

He created an economic stimulus package which resulted in one of the shortest recessions in history......in spite of governing during the most significant terrorist attack in American history.

I received a check in the mail from the tax cut/child thing....anyway, I bought a dryer that I needed and couldn't afford to get at the time.

Not a big deal in the great scheme of things but we are one family, we used our rebate check and put it back into the economy which was the point.

It was your money anyway and not a "rebate" check:

Yes, it did help you out at that time, but you would have received it at some point.

Whatever you want to call it, the point was to get the money circulating in the economy. I did that and I think a lot of other people did to.

Although the ES can be called into question due to the amount of money it will have cost the gov't once all is said and done......I will give him that.

When the tech stocks went belly up and the stock marked fell, there wasn't a panic, and he brought us through it.
