White House Mess
White House officials are quietly anxious about the outcome of events over which they have little control. It's an uncomfortable position for an administration that likes to steer the agenda and has a reputation for protecting its secrets. Now, administration officials are asking reporters what they're hearing.
Imagine that. Bushonomics doesn't seem to be going too well

You're not being very patriotic by saying things like this. I can say things like this because I am an anti-american-america-hater/terrorist-supporter. What's your excuse?

Bush's statement, "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," is characteristic of this president that operates in a vacuum. He's enjoyed almost all of his tenure with a same-party compliant Congress and Senate that cater to his agenda. He's yet to have to compromise. As a result, this self-proclaimed religious president fell to the sin of arrogance and so did his allies on the Hill. They believed that they could do no wrong.
- Two of his close aides will likely be indicted.
- The Rep. House Majority leader was indicted.
- The Senate Majority Leader is under investigation for insider trading on a 'blind trust' that was not so blind after all.
- He seems to have nominated a Supreme Court justice that lacks basic qualifications.
- His war of choice is not going the way that he expected.
If Mr. Bush thinks all of this "noise" won't effect his agenda he's delusional. I just hate to gloat about this (actually, I rather enjoying it.) It's just as Molly Ivins predicted last November.
The Bush administration is going to be wired around the neck of the American people for four more years, long enough for the stench to sicken everybody. It should cure the country of electing Republicans.Conservatives: "If the facts disagree with our opinion, ignore the facts -- or at least misrepresent them."

after Clinton got done having his nuts sucked there was quite a bit of
"some background noise here, a lot of chatter" but he didn't let it deter him from leading America did it? so why should Bush be detered by a few rogue members of his staff? every President has suffered from this sort of stuff. I am not apologizing for the man and I think his latest choice for Supreme Court is idiotic. at the same time, I find it idiotic when someone will post a link and then tie it in with something entirely different. what the heck does people being indicted have to do with the state of the economy? post a business/money article if you want to mae a comment about that for God's sake!
and then, of course, we have the followup. Feel free to gloat, MTA, but the only part of that "prediction" that has come true is we are stuck with Bush until 2008. Wow! What a great statement. Molly must have gone to Harvard and gotten a Masters to have that sort of foresight. I'm glad she can share it with people like you.Good job, friend-of-friends!
