Shut Up, Dummy!

Bush: One of Worst Disasters to Hit U.S.

Could it be that President "I like the taste of shoe leather" Bush is again hitting the peace pipe? At the recent Republican Governors Association meeting Bush stated that he "was confident (Republicans) would hold the White House in 2008."

What The Peach found somewhat shocking was not this statement. The Peach feels it's OK to feel confident. Hell, even the Miami Dolphins thought they would make the playoffs at the beginning of the 2007 football season.

No, it was what Bush based his prediction on: "I say I am confident, because I understand the mentality of the American people." SAY WHAT? A February 24th poll taken by CBS/NY Times found that 64% of Americans disapprove of the job Bush is doing. So, it is questionable which Americans Bushy-Brain is basing his statement on.

And then the next day the AP started a story about the lack of consumer confidence with this paragraph:
No good news today on the economic front. Consumer confidence plunged, the wholesale inflation rate soared, the number of homes being foreclosed jumped, home prices fell sharply and a report predicts big increases in health care costs.
Hey, Bush. Please. Do everyone a favor. Shut up and crawl back into your hole!
