Bush a failed president...? Well, duh... [UPDATE]

georgie wants to make a comeback... this should be good for some laughs...
After fumbling the nomination of a Supreme Court justice and defending an unpopular war that has now cost more than 2,000 American lives, Bush finds his presidency at a new low. A USA TODAY/CNN/Gallup Poll taken Friday through Sunday shows that a solid majority of Americans, 55%, now judge Bush's presidency to be a failure.


White House aides say Bush hopes to regain equilibrium by focusing on issues he believes Americans outside Washington care most about: the economy,
Iraq, immigration and the bird flu.

"A lot of the issues that we're going to be dealing with ... affect the day-to-day realities of people outside the Beltway," says Nicolle Wallace, the White House communications director.

"We'll be going around the (media) filter to communicate directly with the American people about the things they care about."

this oughta be interesting... let's take 'em one at a time...

iraq - what the hell is he going to say about iraq besides the same damn things he's already said a nauseating number of times...?

the economy - oh, i'm waitin'... what'll it be...? extending the tax cuts...? cutting medicaid...?

immigration - more about a guest worker program to keep his business cronies in cheap labor...? closing the border...? hiring blackwater to patrol the border and placing the minutemen under them...?

bird flu - another way to stir up fear...? declaring martial law and having the military enforce quarantines...?

how about something i care about like getting your sorry ass out of the white house so we can begin cleaning up your horrendous mess...?

i'm not sure i'm ready to deal with this...


meanwhile, in an effort to "regain equilibrium by focusing on issues he believes Americans outside Washington care most about..."
The White House on Monday rebuffed calls for a staff shakeup, the firing of Karl Rove and an apology by President Bush for the role of senior administration officials in the unmasking of CIA operative Valerie Plame.

oh, golly, i'm S-O-O-O-O glad he's really serious about regaining our trust...
