Where's Dubya?

Just wanted to point out something that Chris Matthews harped on on Hardball last night, and that I just read in MSNBC's FirstRead blog this morning:

When we were in the run-up to the Iraq War, President Bush was everywhere, giving speeches to the country, promoting the cause with the citizenry and overall doing - at the time anyway - a pretty good job of "selling" the war.

As Alan Greenspan said, this current economic crisis is a once-in-a-century event and Bush is nowhere to be seen!  He's essentially leaving it up to Congress and Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson to take care of this mess.

Ugh.  I don't know why I should be surprised, after almost eight years of watching this incompetent bastard screw literally everything up.  But he is, after all, the first American President with an MBA.  You'd think he'd at least have some clue as to how to begin to solve this.

You know what?  I take that last sentence back.  I want him far away, far far far far far away from any crisis.  He's like the anti-King Midas: everything he touches turns into Iraq.

Four more months... four more months... four more months... four more months...
