A picture named lostCause.jpgQueso: "Itís about time Americans understand who it was that they elected." Amen to that. Tonight's press conference was pretty bad. At one point I thought maybe Bush should just resign and go be President of Iraq. He seems to have lost track of his job, which is President of the country I live in, the country I just paid taxes to, the country whose young people are dying to save a country that did not attack us on Sept 11 and one that clearly does not want our help. Watching him fumble tonight, I realized this is Mr Joe Average thrust into a situation way over his head, as if that wasn't bad enough, he started a war that has no end. Shame on the Republicans for nominating this guy in 2000. He can't complete a sentence. He talked about a chicken farm in Libya (twice!). The Republicans still have the power to fix it, get a new candidate for the November election, and start the withdrawal from Iraq now. It's a disaster. This guy is drowning, and that's bad. Permanent link to this item in the archive.
