A Day in the Life of George Bush
I read with interest the report today about what might be a typical day in Crawford. As reported:
The previous Saturday, after Mr. Bush went on another 17-mile bike ride with a group of male reporters and photographers, he outlined his plans for the rest of his day:Fishing. Going to see a baseball game. Read a mystery. Go to sleep early.
"I'm going to have lunch with Secretary of State Rice, talk a little business; Mrs. Bush, talk a little business; we've got a friend from South Texas here, named Katharine Armstrong; take a little nap. I'm reading an Elmore Leonard book right now, knock off a little Elmore Leonard this afternoon; go fishing with my man, Barney; a light dinner and head to the ballgame. I get to bed about 9:30 p.m., wake up about 5 a.m. So it'sa perfect day."

What is wrong with this picture?
Is this the schedule of a man who is President of the United States? While that nation is at war and Americans are dying almost daily?
America deserves better. A perfect day for our President should be when all Americans have jobs. All Americans have access to healthcare. When none of our young men and women serving their nation in the armed forces are actually in harm's way. When no American is without a home or goes to sleep hungry.
Anything less should never be perfect.
