Bush's disasters in over time
George W. Bush brought us disasters, and people said, "Oh, he'll lose the 2004 election." Then they said, "Oh, only a couple years left." Then they said, "Only a few months left." You may remember the disasters that followed these sentiments: 9/11, Iraq, Katrina, and a bevy of scandals.
And now it's so close to November, so it's essentially two months left. And yes, perhaps the worst disaster -- in the sense that almost all Americans will feel the effects -- has happened: bailing out private banking companies with billions more. "It's okay," says Bush. "I've already got a tab going for Iraq."
This economy is in free-fall. Bush, McCain, GOP policies made it happen. Change has never been so important. The first Bush left office in a recession -- his 1992 election was moribund. Now Bush 43 is leaving us with a recession -- and McCain's campaign will soon prove itself moribund. Why?
Ultimately, the top of the ticket must stand alone. That's who we vote for. McCain has been propped up by his negative campaigning genius, Steve Schmidt, his Barbie-come-lately VP pick, Sarah Palin, and a newfound dependence on the teleprompter. My prediction that McCain could be another -- an older? -- Bob Dole may meet its fruition. Funny, I have a sentimental feeling for the Midwestern Senator Dole right now. He never had the ugly contempt and anger McCain has for his opponents (from Romney to Obama).
