Bush lowers the bar again...

First, Bush lowered the bar to protect Rove. Now, the bar has been lowered for Iraq. What Bush hoped for, and what Iraq will eventually become, were always two different things. Most of us already knew this.

Now, suddenly, they "get it" too.

So what's to do? Why lower the bar, of course.

He is the king of low expectations.

Did you see this?

From The Birmingham News:

CRAWFORD, Texas - President Bush, noting that lots of people want to talk to the president and "it's also important for me to go on with my life," on Saturday defended his decision not to meet with the grieving mom of a soldier killed in Iraq.

Bush said he is aware of the anti-war sentiments of Cindy Sheehan and others who have joined her protest near the Bush ranch.

"But whether it be here or in Washington or anywhere else, there's somebody who has got something to say to the president, that's part of the job," Bush said on the ranch. "And I think it's important for me to be thoughtful and sensitive to those who have got something to say."

"But," he added, "I think it's also important for me to go on with my life, to keep a balanced life."

The comments came prior to a bike ride on the ranch with journalists and aides. It also came as the crowd of protesters grew in support of Sheehan, the California mother who came here Aug. 6 demanding to talk to Bush about the death of her son Casey. Sheehan arrived earlier in the week with about a half dozen supporters. As of yesterday (Saturday) there were about 300 anti-war protesters and approximately 100 people supporting the Bush Administration. In addition to the two-hour bike ride, Bush's Saturday schedule included an evening Little League Baseball playoff game, a lunch meeting with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, a nap, some fishing and some reading. "I think the people want the president to be in a position to make good, crisp decisions and to stay healthy," he said when asked about bike riding while a grieving mom wanted to speak with him. "And part of my being is to be outside exercising."

What a fuck head. I don't want a president that rides his bike for two hours and takes naps. I want a president that will run the fucking country.

And, as usual, he shows his usual sensitivity...kids are dying in Iraq, oh well, I need to get on with my life.

Bastard.

Fortunately it's much easier for him to go on than, say, Cindy Sheehan.

"Go on with his life"

Yeah, I heard that one. I also heard McCain say that he was with the chimp when chimpy was consoling families of the dead. McCain said the chimp makes a real emotional connection with the families. That he feels the suffering in a very personal way.

I thought McCain was an OK guy, but not after that little speil.

Chimpy doesn't care about anything.

Yes, rather upsetting that McCain is towing the party line and parroting the Republican talking points. WTF is wrong with these sheeple?

Hey, did you read about Justice Sunday? Conservative Christians and Catholics need to step to the front of the bus and take the wheel. That leaves the rest of us at the back of the bus, or perhaps on another bus on the way to the concentration camp.

Oh, and their head-liner, none other than "Multiple Ethics Violations" DeLay. Now you know we're in trouble.

These people scare the shit out of me.

I'm not a sheehan hater, but he did meet with the woman once already. I agree with her grievances but, seriously, if the parties were reversed, you would expect a president to meet with a citizen for a second time when clearly the point is a political one, not a genuine question?

I didn't see much about justice sunday but I did hear that frist's flip flop on stem cells got him disinvited. Heh. that guy has a tin ear for politics. how in the hell did he end up as senate leader?
