Did George W Bush cause Americans to get Lazy?
TV Personality and conservative writer for the American Spectator Ben Stein trashed the suffering of unemployed Americans by writing that the people who are unemployed right now are “generally people with poor work habits and poor personalities.” He claims the unemployed are Americans with “unpleasant personalities…who do not know how to do a day’s work." What he left out of his article is that this current Great Republican recession was caused by the collective bad behavior of the world’s largest banksters and the politicians who legalized their massive theft - cheered on by right-wing commentators like Stein. Before The Great Republican recession, the unemployment rate stayed around six percent while now it's closing in on 10%. It's crazy to think that millions of American workers just suddenly got lazy and their personalities took a dive during the last two years of the Bush Administration. Although it is possible, I suppose, that six years of Bush did have a psychological effect on the nation.
