    Ironic, considering how Bush's economy almost put him out of business.
    It swings both ways.  Last year I worked for a financial services company that specialized in inheritance-tax dodges for affluent upper-middle-class investors who were paranoid about their heirs having to pay inheritance taxes.

    The owner, although a nice guy, not an asshole, was a big-time repub and Dubya supporter.  And whereas his company had thrived for some years, when Dubya and the repubs raised the so-called "death tax" floor from about $1 million to about $5 million, the Law of Unintended Consequences kicked in, and the owner lost about four-fifths of his business, which resulted in major layoffs, near-bankruptcy, etc.

    He still loves Dubya, though.  Are we surprised?
