Have a Good Vacation, Mr. President!

One hallmark of chicken hawks is they love to talk tough as long as other people pay the price. President Bush is starting a 9-day vacation to Crawford, Texas, so the Portland Freelancer wants to remind him of what the soldiers he hung out to dry in Iraq are going through. Actually 9 days is not that long compared to the month vacation prior to 9/11. Back then he used to take 9-day weekends.
Oh well, nice to see him making some personal sacrifice. Maybe now that his generals have finally admitted the wheels are coming off in Iraq, he might have the class to admit he made a mistake and get these guys the hell out of there.

Hey Bill! Great job in further eroding your credibility with anyone but the true 'moonbats' by trotting out the tired "vacation" meme again. Of course even the mainstream press is forced to admit that he works just as hard in Crawford as he does in DC.

Oh....and coming from someone who recently admitted he works a two-hour work day on ads the exclamation point :)

I don't work as hard as the President but I don't screw up as much either. Iraq is coming apart. We're in the process of seeing that famous Bush resolve meet up with reality. That's when we're going to see an erosion of credibility but it will not be from me.

Once again, the Bush-puppet changes the subject and re-frames.

Once again, laurelhurstdad interjects his pointless, ankle-biting comments because he has nothing else to add to the discourse. And I didn't change the subject - if you had any perceptional abilities beyond, "Bush baaad! Cheney liiiiiie!" you'd see that the general topic was the President's work ethic.

And once again, Anonymous changes the subject. These folks really don't get it that everyone's on to them, do they?

Actually the general topic was the horrible position President Bush left our soldiers in.

Actually, I think Bush takes so many extended vacations because it's one of the few things he knows how to do well.

By the way, thanks for everyone's witty installments to "Bernard's Tale." Understandably, it didn't take long for the story to turn political, given the strong convictions of the bloggers on this site. Anonymous, atleast it provided a brief respite (your suggestion)from the vituperations.
So, back to less trivial issues. Like, how can we get our country back?

quidproquo.....try winning an election. That's a start.

PS - given the conspiracy acceptance on this board, I know that suggestion will only solicit a bunch of unfounded 'Dibold' or 'black box voting' comments, links to whatshisface Kennedy's thoroughly debunked Rolling Stone laugher of an article, and inevitably the 2000 "stolen" election.

But seriously - try winning an election. It really works.

Those people who still believe that the previous elections were honest live in a cozy, warm, shell of ignorance.

The Kennedy debunkers have been debunked themselves. Heck, common sense alone tells you Ohio was rigged, and even the brain-dead know what happened in Florida.

Just because it's old news doesn't make it right.

And on another subject, telling a few members of Congress that you have broken the law doesn't get you off the hook (unless, of course, you have a gutless Congress).

Move on, little boy anonymous.
