How the hell can Bush keep going on vacation with what's going on in Iraq? This simpleton spent last week being taped for some outdoor sporting show, showing off his prowess with the fishing rod. And it was the White House's idea to invite them along, as a means to further cement Bush's reputation with hunters and outdoorsmen.
Check this out from CBS News:
"A CBS News tally shows this is Bush's 26th presidential trip to Crawford. He has spent all or part of 166 days at the ranch or en route -- the equivalent of 51/2 months. When Bush's trips to Camp David and Kennebunkport, Maine, are added, according to the CBS figures, Bush has spent 250 full or partial days at his getaway spots -- 27 percent of his presidency so far."
If you're going to be a "war President," like Bush says he is, at least be around to conduct the war. Further evidence -- along with the fact that George's Uncle Dick has to go to the 9/11 Commission with him -- that the Cheney-Rummy-Wolfowitz crew is really running the country.
