That's my new talking point. There is no point in getting into long policy discussions with most people.
And most people don't want to hear that Bush is a fool.
But if I sigh and say things like, "He just seems like he brought bad luck with him." Or, "Well, I'm sure Bush is doing the best he can, but maybe a new President will bring us better luck," it seems to register on the supersitious level at which many people function.
Remember, we are increasingly a society of lotto and slot players, who believe in luck more than hard work. (Afterall, when your jobs sucks all you have to believe in is luck) So why fight the trend? Take advantage of it. No arguments about politics. Just a simple shrug of the shoulders and a statement about luck. And maybe I'll be lucky enought to sway a few voters.
