Bush and the F Word

An e-mail I got this morning from someone the president has been glad to have on his side and really shouldn’t so rudely dismiss:

“If you want to scare the American people, what you say is the bill’s an amnesty bill. That’s empty political rhetoric trying to frighten our citizens.”

– PRESIDENT BUSH, on the proposed immigration bill.

This is the beginning of the Final Act for the Bush Presidency.

I’m so over him, I may get a bumper sticker for my car that says 1-20-09.

Confession: I own a 1-20-09 clock. It sits next to the novelty Bush bobblehead. Fair and balanced.
