Trouble in Paradise

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any better, we get this.

Congressional republicans asked Bush to convene a special session of Congress to grandstand and showboat their lusting of lifting the ban on offshore drilling.

“President” Bush refused.

Now he’s got House republicans mad at him… and a group of them sent a legislative update to gop members today in which Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (r-MI) accused the President, whom he labeled “Beijing George” of throwing House republicans “under the bone-dry bus.”

Says the memo; “Today, in his final term, the wildly unpopular President George W. Bush boarded Air Force One bound for the Beijing Olympics and a meeting with his chum Hu Jintao, the dapper ruler of a nuclear armed, communist dictatorship. … Perhaps our Compassionate Conservative-in-Chief will bring our absent Democrat Congress some ‘Made in (communist) China’ souvenir t-shirts: “Bush went to Beijing and all I got was this lousy five week, paid vacation.”

Ouch… that sounds like something I would say on this blog… but the fact that it’s members of Bush’s own party should give concern to republicans and joy to Democrats.

We can only hope the animosity lasts...
