Just One of the Guys
Bush’s political handlers portray his as just one of the guys. AP reports on his income and taxes: “President Bush and his wife, Laura, reported adjusted gross income of $735,180 for last year and paid $187,768 in federal taxes, according to his return.” That’s nothing compared to Cheney. “Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne, made $8.82 million and are looking for a refund of about $1.9 million.”
Do these sound like the kind of guys you typically go out for a beer with. There’s nothing necessarily wrong with having a high income , but when they portray John Kerry as a rich elitist and Bush as one of the guys this is another example of Bush Administration misinformation.
