It’s nice to know some things will never change.
During a dinner for the Republican Governors Association (the clips have been all over cables news), Bush says:
“I’m confident we’ll hold the White House in 2008.”
“And I don’t want the Republican president to be lonely. And that is why we’ve got to take the House, retake the Senate, and make sure our states are governed by Republican governors.”
“When I say I’m confident, I am so because I understand the mentality of the American people. And I understand the mentality of our candidates. And there’s no question in my mind, with your help, 2008 is going to be a great year.”
“I believe the American people understand that success in Iraq is necessary for the long-term security of the American people. And we will elect somebody to the White House who will keep up the fight to make sure Iraq is secure and free.”
He understands the mentality of the American people? Is it Opposite Day at The White House? Does that mean he sits in the Oval Office and says, “Screw the American people and their mentality!” every time he makes a decision so out of line with overall national sentiment? I don’t think there’s anyone who understands the American people’s mentality less – Wolf Blitzer who thinks that repeating “The Best Political Team on TV” every 30 seconds will make us agree with him (it doesn’t).
And imagine the country flooded with Republican leaders. I’d rather be invaded by gargantuan cyclops wanting to enslave our women and eat our household pets. Party loyalty has to be abandoned if we want a healthier democratic government. If history has proven one thing true, it’s that rule by one party alone leads to enhanced corruption and faulty logic and leadership.
Only 10 months and 25 days. Only 10 months and 25 days…
