Bush Wants to Resign

Neither radio nor audio stream were enough to fully appreciate President George Bush's midday press conference. It was something to see to believe, deer in the headlights looks, disconnects and all. And not just an especially anxious, haphazard, akilter performance, both demonstrative and dismissive. Mr. Bush was all over the podium and all over the map, trying to duck for cover, wanting to get out of the train's way.

The Democrats eeked out an oncoming locomotive, and today that pendulum's headlight is bright. For all to see, the president seemed to be having a multilateral, bipolar hangover.

Bottom line: Mr. Bush doesn't look forward to working with the 'Democratic tsunami' at all. He's now visibly stunned and acutely pained to offer his handshake across the aisle. I don't think he even has much relish for furthering his agenda for the next two long years. I think he just wants to go home.

But with Bush back on the ranch in Crawford, not to worry, Dick Cheney would still be in charge.

Turns out there wasn't a democratic tsunami. Almost every 6th year president sees a change in the number of congressional seats. Move along, there is nothing to see here.

What's the deal with Liebermann? His party rejects him and the voters approve him.

The "Democratic tsunami" is not my invention. I heard this phrase used in today's post-election coverage. Obviously, the media do want to build up the drama. But actually, this shift is not quite that predictable, historically, and it certainly puts some checks on Bush, Cheney, and Rove. Ok, perhaps not tarred and feathered but at least tarnished.

I just want to see Bush and his "buddies" held accountable for what they've done. Bring on the investigations Dems!

Yes, what a delicate situation for such an indelicate president. If justice is to prevail, then every public servant should be held accountable for such blatant, dangerous and deadly wrongdoing. Some would say evil.
