Our Poor, Lonely President. Pity Him. PITY HIM, NOW!

If you're ever looking for an opportunity to feel sorry for our Dear, Pitiful President, then have I got an article for you!

It starts off semi-unassumingly with the title, "A President Besieged and Isolated, Yet at Ease" but, unfortunately, it's all downhill from there.

The first page tells of his recent endeavors to find out why he is so hated, why things are going so wrong, WHY anything is the way it is. And, he does this by summoning intellectuals, 'experts', and what-not to the Oval Office, or the living rooms in the White House.

Over sodas and sparkling water, he asks his questions: What is the nature of good and evil in the post-Sept. 11 world? What lessons does history have for a president facing the turmoil I'm facing? How will history judge what we've done? Why does the rest of the world seem to hate America? Or is it just me they hate?

Well, Ladies and Gentlemen, I guess we were all wrong about Dubya. It's not that he doesn't care about current affair, public opinion, status of the war. He just had to bring in people that are a lot smarter than he, to answer the questions he can't even begin to have a clue on.

"You think about prime ministers and presidents being surrounded by cabinet officials and aides and so forth," said Alistair Horne, a British historian who met with Bush recently. "But at the end of the day, they're alone. They're lonely. And that's what occurred to me as I was at the White House. It must be quite difficult for him to get out and about."

Well, Gee. I never quite thought about it like that. Aw, shucks. Now I feel bad. He's just our president, and he's just really lonely. THAT'S why he waged an pointless, terrible war. He just wanted some play-mates.
DUDE, If I had known that? I could've sent my brother to go play with him. Better to sacrifice one than FOUR THOUSAND.

The polls reflect the events of Bush's second term, an unyielding sequence of bad news. Social Security. Hurricane Katrina. Harriet E. Miers. Dubai Ports World. Vice President Cheney's hunting accident. Jack Abramoff, Tom DeLay and Mark Foley. The midterm elections. I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Alberto R. Gonzales and Paul D. Wolfowitz. Immigration. And overshadowing it all, the Iraq war, now longer than the U.S. fight in World War II.

Since winning reelection 2 1/2 years ago, Bush has had few days of good news, and what few he has had rarely lasted. Purple-fingered Iraqis went to the polls to establish a democracy but elected a dysfunctional government riven by sectarian strife. U.S. forces hunted down Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the al-Qaeda leader in Iraq, but the violence only worsened. Saddam Hussein was convicted, but his execution was marred by videotaped taunting. Perhaps the only unalloyed major second-term victory for Bush has been the confirmation of two Supreme Court justices who have begun to move the court to the right.

Wow. I never truly realized how difficult it is to be a President. Much less be one, and have little to no actual intelligence.

Too bad their little list up there left out the biggest 'scandals' of Bush's Administration. It's almost a sin to leave these things out, as they're breaking down our democracy every second they stand. COME ON. They left out:
1.) CIA/Wire-tapping scandal.
2.) Valerie Plame scandal.
3.) MOTHER F***ing Torture scandal.
4.) Alberto Gonzales's "ideas" on habeas corpus.

What about mentioning their total lack of regard for that little thing we used to know..you know, The Rule of Law?

Other presidents have been crushed by the pressure. Lyndon B. Johnson was tormented by Vietnam War protesters outside his window shouting, "Hey, hey, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?" Nixon swam in self-pity during Watergate, talking to paintings and once asking Henry Kissinger to pray with him. Bill Clinton fumed against enemies and nursed deep grievances during his impeachment battle.

This was the point that I started yelling explicatives at the top of my lungs, because if you're comparing Bush to Any. Other. President. In any category, He Loses. That's because he's a failure, an embarrassment as a President and as an American.
I won't even listen if you're trying to tell me that he's stood up to the pressure, and will, after we're all dead and gone, come out the Greatest President in American history.

The only part that I can agree with is this,

Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), who attended a legislative meeting with Bush last month, said his impervious nature works both ways. "The things that make him unpopular also help him deal with all the pressure," Kingston said. "He's stubborn. He's loyal to his philosophy."

Anyway, The article goes on to spew more of this biased crap, that totally ignores anything that could hinder his point of "Hey, Bush is totally great. CAN'T YOU SEE IT?!"

I'll give Ol' Dubya a little bit of credit, if you match Bush up to any other president in the categories of Stupidity, or Stubbornness, and you might have a winner, but that's nothing I would write home to mom about.
