The Vacation President... taking another vacation??
I just heard on Headline News that Bush wouldn't make his next SC choice until next week, after coming back from Camp David.

Why does this President need so much time off? (We all know the answer, but it's fun to ask)

5. bush doesn't like problems or important decisions to get in the way......
of his drinking, so Camp David is the perfect place to imbibe.

7. Why? So that everyone can get their stories straight...
...before Fitzgerald indicts Rove and Libby, and to huddle up on what to do when the new Abu Ghraib pictures come out...

That's why....

14. So true you are. . .truebrit. . .
and I would like to put out there a more fantabulous thought. . .that Fitzgerald even has the grounds for serving B* a subpoena. . .ya know. . .just like Nixon. . .so B* needs a time-out place to concoct how he'll dodge the subpoena JUST LIKE NIXON.

Pleeeeeeeease let this be!

8. Is there any brush left to clear? At this point, I'd think there was no
brush left in all of Crawford.

Poor Laura. Let's hope she's in Cannes shopping.

12. Seriously though, maybe we should ask ourselves
what types of mental impairments warrant so many vacations? And what kind of idiot goes to the ugliest, hottest part of Texas in August? And who's running things when he's not working???

17. Same person who runs things when he's "working:" Cheney.
IMHO: Every time he escapes to carwford, he's quit the job.

When will we just admit it: He quits on a regular basis, just like he quit the texas air force.

Let's all just replace him while he's gone. He'll be relieved, I'm sure.

Babbs:"It's ok, George. Have another cookie. We'll take care of everything. Why don't you go out golfing?"

"Ok, Mom. If you say so. "

19. Answers
1. Dry drunk whose begun drinking again, messed up a country and killed a bazillion people

2. Same as above

3. Dick Cheney who has always "run things" although their idea of running things is not our idea of running things!

Seriously, I think * has fallen in the bottle again.

18. Not another vacation. The usual weekend vacation at Camp David.

He leaves at midday on Friday and returns late Sunday afternoon. He rides his bike to his little heart's content to get away from all the hard work and stress of being king.
