Why didn't President Bush think of this?
(I know, that's a whole 'nother post)
Here's how to cut the deficit in half: 1). Run the deficit up to 1+trillion, the highest in history, in your first month in office. 2). Then in your second month, SAY you'll cut the deficit in half in two years. 3). Even if TCM (The Candy Man) were able to do it (which is VERY doubtful), that brings it down to a level (500 billion) which also happens to be higher than anytime in history. 4). Take credit for "cutting the deficit in half". 5). Run for reelection based on your record of "cutting the deficit in half".
The left wing media will buy it, hook, line and sinker.
I sincerely believe TCM (The Candy Man) sincerely believes we're all idiots. Of course, based on the past Presidential election results, most of us are.
