Lost In Washington

It always amazed me how George Hubert Walker Bush, who only served one term in the Presidency of the United States could get Barbara’s picture on a dollar bill.  Now along comes George Dubya Bush and he has his picture on a dollar too.

Received a smattering of emails over the weekend from people wanting me to lay off Bush and the State of Texas in general. (Yeah, like that dog is gonna hunt?)  So if you are wondering if the “Tag Feature” of WordPress.com is working, well it is doing just fine. Also, I dutifully filed most all of them under the big “Red X” in the upper left hand quadrant of my mailbox.

As for Bush?

Now, as he spends his last months in office trying to avert a global economic collapse, Mr. Bush has been telling people privately that it’s a good thing he’s in charge. He said that if it was going to happen at all, he was glad it was happening under his presidency, because he had a good group of people in D.C. working for him. 

Perhaps those that live south of the Red River have a different meaning to this term. Surrounded by “competent good people.” Which mainly consists of educated, well paid baby killers, private company mercenaries (overseas) and a covert 24 hour a day staff of paper and document shredders.

Bush also said that whoever was going to take over in January was going to have a huge crisis on their hands the day they come into office. Which is more than likely, the biggest political gaff of the year. The only thing that I could possibly think of more absurd than this is “Read My Lips … No New Taxes.”

I believe that is a Bushism too if I am not correct?

Dubya later said when regaining consciousness that he thought by this happening now, that perhaps everyone could see signs of improvement before the next president comes into office.

That is, if the lights are still on …

Don’t you just love it when they look into the old teleprompter with that deer in the headlight look, and explain to you how everything is just going to be swell in River City.  Now when you spin it that way, well, it just sounds a lot better doesn’t it?

Let me try it …. Bubonic Financial Plague … Yeah, that works just fine.

And I’ll lay you six to five, Ol’ Ben is rolling over in his grave.

One thought on “Lost In Washington

  1. I would voted for McCain back in the year 2000, had he won the Republican nomination. Back then I was an Independent voter. McCain didn’t the nomination in 2000, consequently the country suffered big time at the hands of Bush, Cheney, the oil companies, and the Republican congress.

    Today, a politician only needs to be a Republican to lose my vote.

    Nice article Don.

    Looking at the polls in
    Oklahoma
    McCain 66%
    Obama 29%

    You appear to be on the wrong side of the fence with your support for Obama or against McCain.

    ====================================
    Oklahoma is a bigtime Republican stronghold Larry, most of the population here are of that persuasion and the Democrat’s usually by-pass the state when campaigning (give it up for a lost cause I guess you might say) and don’t even bother.

    We do have over six million cows tho’ ………

    Just thought I would throw that in, don’t know why, just seemed right. It is early and I have not had my coffee for the day.
