The Monday ‘BushWhack’ing

It’s the beginning of a short week, so have a short ‘whack’ing:

  • Fearful that “President” Bush will recess appoint nominees that , Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has scheduled “pro-forma” sessions that, essentially, keeps the Senate in session… Bush(whacked) Administration whining starts in five, four, three…
  • Try to contain your shock, but another administration official has fled the sinking ship left; homeland security adviser Fran Townsend resigned her position today and cited no reason for her departure. I know I’ve said this many, many, many times before, but will the last administration official leaving DC please turn off the lights?
  • And have we mentioned? That a survey by the National Association for Business Economics shows bad economic times ahead? It’s true, according to the survey, the number of economists that are forecasting the U.S. will slip into a recession has “almost doubled over the last two months.” Add to that the fact that the U.S. dollar has fallen to historic lows against the euro and the yen, and you have a nation worried about the strength of the U.S. economy… (And yet, the Bush loyalists continue to say that the economy is robust… which begs the question of what they HELL they are smoking…)
