So many blogs have written about Bush being "out of touch" that I can't even keep count of them all.
Likewise, there is a recurring theme which appears not only in Left and Right Blogsylvania but also in traditional print media which claims that Bush is completely incapable of taking responsibility for anything. He rufuses to stand accountable ..for anything.
Our friends over at The Left Coaster have the latest example. Here are a few choice snippets.
Bush feels that the November election wasn’t a referendum on him, of course.
While Bush said that voters clearly indicated they wanted more bipartisan cooperation, he did not characterize last month's election as a repudiation of his leadership. Instead, he said, the lack of progress in the war in Iraq and ethical lapses among Republican members of Congress soured voters on the GOP and created an opening for the Democrats' victory.
"There's a sense that people's votes were being taken for granted, in a way," Bush said. ". . . Look, you've got a guy using earmarks to enrich himself; there was sex and all kinds of issues that sent the signal that perhaps it was time to give another group a chance to lead."
That’s right, Bush sees himself as blameless for the GOP’s November losses. It was all Congress’s fault. And his people, who looked the other way when they and the GOP Congress spent the country into the poorhouse, now think it is the Democrats who pose the greatest risk to the economy if they make the wealthy pay their fair share.
p.s. Things have finally slowed down for me locally so I can devote time to some more serious blog posts...I've just tried to keep the posts fresh so comments could be made for the last few days. Hope you didn't mind the frivolity.
