Bush Should Give State of Union Before Skipping Town!

Bush Should Give State of Union Before Skipping Town!

By John Lillpop

 G.W. Bush should get out of D.C. at 12 noon on January 20,
by riding  off on a blind donkey, symbolic of his vision less incompetence.

Nevertheless, think about it: Why should John McCain or Barack Obama be forced to stand before the U.S. Congress, the nation, and the world next January to explain the dreadful mess that George W. Bush has created?

After all, giving the 2009 State of the Union message is bound to be a lose-lose proposition for whomever it falls on to deliver said oratory.

On one hand, standing before the world and declaring that the "State of the Union is good," would be farcical.

On the other hand, telling the truth, that the "State of the Union is dismal," could cause additional panic and dismay, neither of which will help alleviate the situation.

Inasmuch as accountability and personal responsibility are coming back in vogue, why not prop George W. Bush up one last time, on January 19, and let him accept blame for the financial meltdown, rampant home foreclosures, the never ending Iraq war, open borders and out of control illegal immigration, revitalization of Russia and communism there, and China`s ascent as a global power?

Moreover, since W is widely recognized as a fanatical baseball fan, let him include a weepy statement of compassion for Chicago Cub`s fans that have been denied a world championship for the 100th consecutive year. And counting.

"Wait until next year," W could plea in a message intended for jilted Cub fans, but which would be equally applicable to anyone with a financial stake in America.

To conclude his presidency, at high noon on January 20, W could ride out of town on a blind donkey, symbolic of his administration and personal executive skills.

Once W has moved his blind ass beyond the Washington, D.C. city limits, President McCain or President Obama would get the key to the White House.

America would then begin the long, tortured journey away from the miserable legacy left by the "Worst president in U.S. history, " none other than George W. Bush.
