TGIF Presidential Countdown: Just 347 days until somebody other than McCain succeeds Bush

At noon on January 20, 2009, George W. Bush will leave office, and someone other than John McCain will take the oath as his successor. Though not if Dubya has anything to say about it. In a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington today, Bush implicitly endorsed McCain.
"We have had good debates and soon we will have a nominee who will carry a conservative banner into this election and beyond," Bush said. "The stakes in November are high. . . . Prosperity and peace are in the balance. So with confidence in our vision and faith in our values, let us go forward, fight for victory and keep the White House in 2008."
He's right about a couple things -- the stakes are high, and peace and prosperity do hang in the balance. Less than a year to go, and counting . . .

Since he pretty much destroyed the peace and shattered the prosperity of the nation -- nearly single-handedly -- it strikes me as utterly preposterous that Dubya can say things like this without his head exploding. However, this is not the first time I've thought that. 347 days. Somehow I know he gets up each and every morning, full of gusto and malevolent energy, rubs his hands together and thinks, "And WHAT can I f**k up today? I know!" And then he goes about setting the stage for starting a new war, or denying healthcare to old people, or making it a law that poor children only get cheap frozen pizza for their school lunches, washed down with Red Bull.

Oops, there I go, ranting again. Thanks for a good post, Guy.
