Editorial from Today’s NY Times

Read this (no registration required): President Bush’s Walkabout

“After President Bush’s disastrous visit to Latin America, it’s unnerving to realize that his presidency still has more than three years to run. An administration with no agenda and no competence would be hard enough to live with on the domestic front. But the rest of the world simply can’t afford an American government this bad for that long.”

  1. Maybe the rest of the world should help out with a regime change or something? The UN are already there anyway, start getting them more active outside of the little building they’re currently holed up in and get Mexico and Canada to open up two fronts :p

  2. Yeah, that one hurts. I love the part in the editorial where they state that the first thing Bush should do is keep Cheney busy with state funerals and chairing various studies.

  3. I am now just as depressed about it as I was 5 minutes ago. I cannot believe Cheney replaced Libby with the shit that came up with all the torture policy.

    There is one thing the essay fails to consider though. Bush can send Cheney to funerals and put him on commissions and he is likely to not go and tell the pres to go to his own damn funerals. This is the problem with giving an active governing role to the VP.

    I have been through and read about bad presidents but I have never seen such simulaneous disregard for the constitution, human rights, and the social contract. I am not sure how much longer we can take this.

    I don’t want to be any more depressed so I am not going to check the election results on prop 2 tonight. I will wait until tomorrow and be indignant at the proper time.

  4. “But the rest of the world simply can’t afford an American government this bad for that long.”

    Yeah. I’m glad somebody noticed.
