I know that simply referring to the nation's leader as a petulant asshole is in no way an insightful commentary and does nothing to advance any cause I might favor but is there any other way to react to the man these days?
Speaking somberly on the South Lawn of the White House before leaving on a trip to New York, Bush said he was willing to meet with Democratic leaders "as many times as it takes to resolve our differences," but he signaled no intention to compromise with them on the funding bill for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
So "resolve our differences" means do just what the president wants. Is there any reason to talk to, or even listen to, this man any more? And I don't mean that rhetorically, either. Would anything be made worse if Democrats announced that the president was no longer someone capable of engaging in honest, or even competent, dialog and simply refused to meet with him? Best of all would be having the mainstream press decide there was no longer any reason to cover someone so vacuous and dishonest. Best case scenario has him hitting the bottle again out of frustration that no one even pretends he matters any more. Double plus good best case has him suffering a breakdown and put on 24 hour suicide watch for his remaining days in office. After that let Laura look after him and I don't give a shit what happens to him.
