Thanks Bush

Tuesday, April 03, 2007 by Dave Winer.

I watched the presidential press conference at 7AM Pacific this morning. It was tough to watch before coffee. That man has no goddam personality, charm, or ability to seduce.  Permalink to this paragraph

Anyway, if I were a Democratic strategist (the president often drops the last syllable, pretty disrespectful) here's what I'd recommend: Permalink to this paragraph

1. Pass the bill, send it to the president. Permalink to this paragraph

2. He vetoes it, as he's promised to. Permalink to this paragraph

3. Pass the bill without the withdrawal bit he objects to. Permalink to this paragraph

4. He signs it. (One can only hope.) Permalink to this paragraph

New Democratic talking point: Okay Mr. President, you can have it your way. We tried, for now. In the fall we're going to look at how you're doing, and if the "surge" isn't working, we're going to ask the Republicans in Congress to get with us and pass a new Iraq withdrawal plan that's veto-proof.  Permalink to this paragraph

A picture named hebrewHunk.jpgOf course, both parties are using the troops as a political football, leaving the American people wondering how we're going to get out of Iraq. The Republicans, by August, should be completely fed up with Bush. Let him have his victory now, without continuing the fight, let him run around saying how he saved the troops from the Democrats. While he's fighting a war with the other party, it'll become clear to everyone else that he's not taking responsbility for the war in Iraq, which of course, the Republics (sic) started.  Permalink to this paragraph

One more thing, schedule another Bill Clinton appearance on Fox, asap. Permalink to this paragraph
