Wish he was running

Last night I was explaining all the things I thought the President has done wrong (among other things Iraq, destruction of New Orleans, wasted world leadership, rising gap between rich and poor) to which one son replied,

"When I'm president I will take money from the rich and give it to the poor so its more equit... equit..."

"Equitable?"

"Yeah, equitable. So it's more fair."

I wish my Robin Hood was on the ballot.

I'm not a fan of mr. president, but lets use some reason here...saying G.W. was responsible for "The destruction of New Orleans" is completely ridiculous. A hurricane might have had something to do with that.

Well Anon.

I actually do think he is largely responsible because 1) the levies weren't strong enough for a weakened category 3 hurricane, 2) a simple plan of driving through neighborhoods with bullhorns didn't happen, and 3) Brownie.

I really could go on. But in his obituary, Bush will be remembered as the president that led us into Iraq and allowed a great American city to (hopefully nearly) be destroyed.
