All Relative I Guess

Bush is touting his fiscal gravitas this weekend. It is absolutely amazing to see these folks spin a $333 Billion deficit like it is the second coming. The spin is that this is so great because they thought they were going to fuck up to the tune of $450 Billion.
I can't imagine why they are neglecting to remind us that it was not that many years ago that Bush was promising a $250 Billion surplus by now and that the miss is, in reality, more like $600 Billion. I guess it is all relative after all.
