Clock Running on Bush Presidency

December 31st, 2007 . by TexasFred

CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) – President Bush’s final-year agenda is a stripped down list of what he can realistically hope to get done, since the clout he once touted is fading away.

Bush will venture to four other continents, get more involved than ever in trying to forge Middle East peace, and continue to command two wars that assure his relevancy to the end. As Iraq improves, he must now deal with renewed violence in Afghanistan and upheaval in Pakistan.

At home, Bush will try to extend two domestic achievements that are dear to his legacy – the No Child Left Behind education law, and tax cuts that otherwise expire in 2010.

Long gone are the big ideas of Social Security and immigration reform, which collapsed on Capitol Hill. His final State of the Union speech in late January is expected to reflect today’s policy reality, eschewing new initiatives in favor of unfinished proposals.

Clock Running on Bush Presidency

I think most everyone already knows, I am NOT a real big fan of George W. Bush, I have tried to like the guy, I have tried to see what he sees and I just can’t do it, I think he’s a pathetic leader and I am glad he is now on the way out, we only have one more year to go, but do you know what the seriously sad part of all this is??

There’s no one running for POTUS that’s going to do ANY better than Bush has done, no one, from either side, all sides, every possible option, Dem, Repub, Libertarian, Greenies, whatever, none of em are going to do ANY better…

And do you know WHY there’s no one that’s NOT going to do any better??

It all boils down to this: Americans, the vast majority of them, are an apathetic lot, they sit back, yawn, say ‘Oh well, it’s just politics’ and then they go to Starbucks and get their double dipped latte froth covered lip coating yes it really DOES make your ass look fat over priced bullshit whatever it is that passes for coffee and just sit ON those fat asses as they LET America die…

It’s not the politicians people, it’s the electorate

That’s right, it’s US, you and me, ALL of us, and so far, I am the only one that’s saying it in their blog, laying the blame where the blame squarely falls, the problem with America is US and what we let these pandering politicos get by with, and until WE demand and GET the very best, this bunch of weak sisters and petty crooks is ALL we’re going to have…

Happy New Year America, you’re getting what you ALLOW, think about that one for a while…
