As President Bush’s days of power draw to a close, one thing is clear: We’ve got a lot more problems now than we did seven years ago.

MicCheck radio came up with 99 of them; here’ s what you all have added:

"The newest economic stimulus package that the president is proposing. What a way to continue putting money into the hands of the wealthy rather than where it really matters—fast aid to those at the bottom who are really struggling."

"Bush seems to think that the best way to fight crime is to cut off funding for crime prevention. Can we really be surprised that over the past few years we’ve seen big crime spikes when he has cut funding to key projects like Community Oriented Policing Services, essentially slashing the number of officers on the streets?"
