Laffer shocked to think W incredibly good at economics

Arthur Laffer responds to a question from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

Q: What grade do you give Bush on economics?

A: I'm really shocked by it. As you probably know, I was not a fan of his father's. I voted for Clinton twice. I really thought Bush (the elder) and Bob Dole were tax collectors for the welfare state. The reason I voted for Bush W. was more Al Gore than it was Bush. And now I am just totally a fan. This guy is just incredibly good at economics.
