This weekend we passed a milestone. George W. Bush, the current incumbent of the White House, has less than 100 days left in his ill-starred Presidency. In 22 days we’ll find out if we will have to suffer through four more years of the same thing under a McCain-Palin (or Palin – ?) administration. Heaven forbid (just a saying, not a religious statement). Bush is near historic approval lows in the Gallup poll (25%) and has been below 30% longer than any President in Presidential polling history. He is irrelevant to most people and has turned the government over to President Paulson. Notice how well we are doing.
The Bushies can still do a lot of damage in ninety some days. George W. is absent but his minions are still there creating ideologically inspired mischief, still trying to “starve the Beast,” still only managing to starve the populace. By the time they vacate the premises they will have pretty much trashed the place.
We are at the threshold of an uncertain future. I don’t know what an Obama administration will be like but I do know what a McCain administration will be like. I’ve just been through eight years of it. I’m not strong enough to last through four more.
