Bush Reaches For Minor Accomplishments

President Bush's reign is at an all time low. His wars are losing, he just saw his party get massively beaten in congressional elections, and he hasn't managed to really effect any of his key legislation, from No Child Left Behind to his judicial nominees. And now his handpicked UN Ambassador, John Bolton, is about to be kicked out.

So what does Georgie have to be happy about? Well, according to The Carpetbagger Report, during Bush's weekly radio speech this weekend, he said,

"One freedom that defines our way of life is the freedom to choose our leaders at the ballot box. We saw that freedom earlier this week, when millions of Americans went to the polls to cast their votes for a new Congress. Whatever your opinion of the outcome, all Americans can take pride in the example our democracy sets for the world by holding elections even in a time of war.” (emphasis added)"

Um, Mr. President? This country has been holding elections during war for hundreds of years...this is nothing that Americans should be specifically proud about during a time when 800,000 Iraqis have been killed because of the Iraq war. If THAT is all you can think of to be proud about, that your Presidency has been a black mark on our country indeed.
