When George Bush was asked today how distracting the scandal surrounding the White House has been, Bush said he's focused on the job of President, not the "background noise."
He commented "There's some background noise here, a lot of chatter, a lot of speculation and opining. But the American people expect me to do my job, and I'm going to."
Well Bushie dear, let me see if I've got this straight. Your most trusted adviser is facing indictment for his role in outing a covert CIA operative with unofficial cover. A federal prosecutor is trying to decide whether members of your Administration have committed perjury, obstruction of justice, and even treason. Members of your Administration have compromised national security because of their role in the outing of Valerie Plame. And that's just background noise to you? I suggest you listen in a little closer!
After promising to restore honor and dignity and integrity to the White House, your Vice President may be indicted. You may be an unindicted co-conspirator. That's background noise to you? Listen a little closer!
You're at the lowest approval rating ever in your Presidency, because of your Administration's failure to adequately respond to the worst natural disaster in this country, despite your pledge last year that you and Dick Cheney were the only ones who could keep us safe. That's background noise to you? Listen a little closer!
You're at the lowest point so far in your Presidency because you took us to war based on a lie. You took us to war without an exit strategy and a plan to win the peace. America's sons and daugthers have layed down their lives for the creation of an Islamic theocracy. That's background noise to you? Listen closer, my friend!
Bushie, the background noise you hear is that of a nation fed up with your lies, your crimes and your incompetence. Listen a little closer!
