A Day in the Life of George Bush

The President doesn't have time to talk to those protesting his war in Camp Casey.

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:

"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."
Fishing. Going to see a baseball game. Read a mystery. Go to sleep early.

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.

I agree whole-heartedly, Mr. Bush (I refuse to call him my president) hasn't even begun to act as president, but merely as a five year old playing war with his plastic soldiers. He gets to vacation while the people he sent out to do his dirty work never have a day off. Does anyone think a soldier in Iraq gets to say, "Hey, I've had enough for this week, I'm going to go over here and do some fishing, read a book, and we'll continue with the fighting when I feel rested." NO! Not at all! They never get rest. But Mr. Bush can, because he doesn't even realize what he's doing, he's having other people make the decisions for him.
