The Jennifer Emails, pt4

This is from me to my older sister, Jennifer

We have Jimmy Buffet and Bruce Springsteen. Who you got?

Her response:

We got the Arnold and Curt Shilling. Although, I've seen Jimmy in concert, Curt's the miracle worker. Oh, and since you have Clinton, cool points are deducted from Jimmy's appearance.

My retort:

Curt declined to share the stage with Gwib recently. Arnold is
repeatedly denied sexual congress by his wife for his foolish ways.
Arnold also publicly disagrees with Gwib on a number of issues. Oh,
and Clinton remains extremely popular. I have no idea what you're
talking about, unless you're speaking for the mullet vote.


"A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll last week found that 48 percent
of Americans had a positive view of Mr. Clinton, while 38 percent had
a negative view. That approval rating was higher than either President
Bush or Sen. Kerry in the same poll, and importantly, Mr. Clinton
scored even better with independents."


Bush's numbers from the beginning of the month, for comparison
purposes, are 49 positive, 52 negative. His positive rating eroded to
44 by midmonth.


I imagine that conservatives, or at least Republicans, are interested
in job growth, people owner their own homes, low unemployment, low
deficits, low government spending, low income taxes. Guess what?
That's Clinton:

* More than 22 million new jobs
* Highest homeownership in American history
* Lowest unemployment in 30 years
* Lowest poverty rate in 20 years
* Higher incomes at all levels
* $360 billion of the national debt paid off
* Largest budget deficit in American history converted to the
largest surplus
* Lowest government spending in three decades
* Lowest federal income tax burden in 35 years
* Higher stock ownership by families than ever before

Strength and wisdom are not opposing values.
This is Shawn posting for Jennifer, who hasn't quite figured out Blogger yet.
