Thank you, my shrub-like leader  
"Obviously, there will be differences over some details, and we will have to work through them," Bush said, but "the whole world is watching to see if we can act quickly to shore up our markets and prevent damage to our capital markets, businesses, our housing sector, and retirement accounts.

"Failure to act would have broad consequences far beyond Wall Street. It would threaten small business owners and homeowners on Main Street."
Could the man get any LESS leader-like in his speeches? He just told Congress to go fucking solve the problem already. Good work.

You know, it's moments like this that make me wonder if Bush thinks that the President's job is largely as a public face. I.e. Congress does all the real work unless we need to do something like, you know, invade other countries.

Wait, you mean that's not the President's job, just to sit there and look pretty?

He had a nice suit.
Dukakis could have done it.

Have you ever noticed when he's talking and the audience gives him their token applause, he gets a little gleam in his eye and a heartfelt smile on his face as if he's thinking "They like me... They really like me."

And they say Obama is the one who needs the reassurance of crowds.

Would you rather he have actually acted? Every time he does that, you people slam him, so why bother anymore? After all, that's the way Bill ran things, so it's gotta work, eh?

I dunno. Doesn't sound like bad advice to me. :p

Hello? Everybody else gone? Cool. I just bopped in to say that I miss my friend Giz. I know that you are busy, you need to have a life more than an LJ, and I am not throwing guilt. I just wanted you to know in the midst of your busyness that I miss you. Take care.

I'm still alive! Still taking pictures of my cats; just not publishing them on the internet as fast. It's been very hectic at work these last few months.
