They Sent Us Up The President

The president was smiling like it hurt, taking it out on the podium, and it appeared at the beginning, foaming at the mouth. Selected Bush quotes from tonight's debate:

"I send up my budget man to the Congress."

"Senator, no one's playing with your votes."

"We'll honor our commitments to senior citizens. But for [younger people] we need to have a different strategy."

Ha ha. Now that I've stopped laughing, I realize that Bush thinks commitments to seniors should be honored, but not commitments to people who aren't. Not being a senior, I resent that.

In his closing statement, Bush said to the country that "We've been through a lot together over the last three, three and a half years." An ex of mine said virtually the same thing, also after some years of being through a lot of fiscal irresponsibility, dictatorial behavior, and grand, glorious promises that were never kept. To the president, I'd say about the same thing I said then:

We sure have been through a lot. And I've had enough.

Oops...correction; just looked at them & I wrote 'frothing at the mouth'

Frothing, foaming, who cares. It was kind of weird, left me wondering where they'd pegged his antidepressant dose for the evening.
