Bad Start for Bush

In stock-market terms, it’s been the worst start of any President in US history.

PRESIDENT BUSH, who marked his 18th month in office this weekend, is off to the worst start of any president in the last 75 years.

At least, that is, as measured by the performance of the Standard & Poor’s index of 500 stocks.

You gotta give the guy a bit of a break, what with **9/11*’ and the lying of the ‘*BigCo’s**, but still, I’ve definitely felt the pain of this first 18 months.
