Apparently "President" Bush isn't too happy these days. Lots of events making him feel down, I guess. According the the NY Daily News, Bush is a mess:
Presidential advisers and friends say Bush is a mass of contradictions: cheerful and serene, peevish and melancholy, occasionally lapsing into what he once derided as the "blame game." They describe him as beset but unbowed, convinced that history will vindicate the major decisions of his presidency even if they damage him and his party in the 2006 and 2008 elections.
"History will vindicate the major decisions of his presidency." Um, George, get one of your embattled staffers to use the internets and do a Google search for "Nixon presidency" and "history." Or "Third Reich" and "history." It will be like talking to a fortune teller, amigo.
Further comedy from the Daily News piece:
Bush is so dismayed that "the only person escaping blame is the President himself," said a sympathetic official, who delicately termed such self-exoneration "illogical."
You know, he really, really is amazing, isn't he? It's everybody's fault but his.
"This is not some manager at McDonald's chewing out the help," said a source with close ties to the White House when told about these outbursts. "This is the President of the United States, and it's not a pleasant sight."
Right, because a McDonald's manager has to make sure the food is cooked right and delivered on time and that the cash records don't come up short. If he doesn't, he gets fired. But not the "President of the United States." He just gets "re-elected."
