The government gets out of the way....... what does that even mean? gets out of the way of what exactly?
A minor recession being but one temporary factor, all things considered Bush inherited probably the best financial situation any incoming president had come into in decades. Can you say "peace dividend"?
They thought the government was tolling in so much extra money because of he Clinton budgets that they could afford to give huge tax cuts in two of the next three years... and in doing so laid the foundation of their own demise and downfall... along with foreign wars unfunded and untaxed.

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
