Our fearless leader has informed Congress that, “I’m the decision maker.” He’s of course referring to their move to oppose his decision to send more troops to Iraq. I suspect his next course, if he had a football, would be to pick it up and go home with it.
I really think this guy believes he’s in his own game world. Perhaps a football is the wrong idea. Maybe someone needs to get this guy a World of Warcraft subscription. He clearly has a need to play out some fantasy scenario. At least in WoW he can do it without destroying the real world for the rest of us.
I love that the President keeps suggesting that Congress isn’t giving his “plan” a chance. He keeps talking about the “plan” as if it’s something unique. Someone needs to tell this guy that the rest of us aren’t convinced that his “plan” is anything more than a nuance. It’s also a nuance we’ve seen before. It doesn’t matter if the names have changed a bit. The story is still essentially the same.
These guys have all been living in their fantasy world too long and the problem is that their fantasy world is our reality. The Vice President was on CNN the other day and looked like a fish out of water. He kept acting like he never said anything positive about the past “plan”. I kept thinking that he’d gotten way too used to the fantasy of Fox News and they way they treat him. Mr. Cheney actually had the nerve to now suggest that failure in Iraq is going to be our fault because “we don’t have the stomach for it.” On Fox they’d all just agree to everything he said and offer no real counter. Of course he’s right. He’s Republican! What we don’t have the stomach for is an administration that doesn’t give a damn about the citizenry it represents. It doesn’t matter what we think to these people. We’re the problem.
So, I’m thinking at this point that we should just tell the President that the football we’re giving him represents the policy and we should hand it to him and let him go ahead and take it home. As soon as he hits the door we just all go ahead and do what needs to be done while he sulks at a distance. George Bush has forgotten the one biggest reality in all of this “game”. He’s not the decision maker; we are and we’ve spoken as loudly and as clearly as possible on this issue.
