Crawford Country Livin
My job isn't terribly important in the grand scheme of things. I get three weeks vacation a year.
George W. Bush has the most important job in the nation. He gets... a year of vacation??????
In a time of terrorism, in a time where a war he started is killing thousands of Americans, in a time where more people in American live in poverty than any time the last decade, in a time when hurricanes are drowning scores in Louisiana and Mississippi, George Bush has spent more time on vacation than any American president in history... except his dad.
Who's been running the country while Bush hunt armadillas? We can only assume the same person that runs it when he's at the office: A Talking Parrot called Bob.
In all seriousness, there's something wrong when the nation is facing such huge problems, and the President is getting a suntan. Of course he won't meet with Cindy Sheehan. He's on vacation for chrissakes!!!! Leave him alone!!!
He was on vacation during 9/11. He was on vacation during the london bombings. He's on vacation now, during Hurricane Katrina and the ongoing war in Iraq. Somebody disconnect a vegetable from life support so we can get this guy back to Washington!
Did the country elect a President? Or a ranchhand? Would you hire this guy?
Then again, it's hard to tell where Bush does more harm. By sitting on the ranch, or sitting in the oval office? Maybe the country is better off without Bush pressing the buttons. Then again, are the people who pulled his strings the ones running the country right now? Whatever happened to that Karl Rove scandal again? Anybody?
I can't deal with all this. I'm going on vacation.
