Judging by the president's words and actions it's clear he's suffering from a condition called Bush Fatigue: being too tired to care what the hell you do or say. Unfortunately, Americans have been suffering from their own version as well. We're just really tired of Bush. Is there a doctor in the house?
From the Iraq war to Plamegate, to Harriet Miers to Dead-Eye Dick and the Birdshot Incident, to Katrina, warrantless wiretappings and the ports controversy, what else besides foot-in-mouth disease could possibly explain Bush's bizarre behavior? Lately, he's his own worst enemy. There seems to be no stopping him from reaping political havoc on his administration. He's a one-man wrecking crew.
Bush Fatigue . The president just doesn't seem to care anymore. He appears detached, disengaged and indifferent. Impatient, and unable and/or unwilling to fully digest the issues before taking stands and making policy. He's tired. Fed up. Crossing off the days on his calendar to when he can sail off into the sunset back to Crawford to fetch balls with Barney and clear some brush. And one look at the national polls tell us another thing: Americans would very much like to pay his gas-fare.
But Bush has three more years left. And we have three more years of Bush. I'm not sure who's going to crack first.
