W Uses Pully Bulpit to Promote Obamamania

By John W. Lillpop


In their worse nightmares, John McCain and the Republican Party could not have imagined the doomsday scenario being played out at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The current resident, a lame duck hawk, was given a six-month "Notice to Vacate" on Sunday, which means that he will not be around to muck up the works next January 20.

Although his days as the most powerful man in the world are quickly dwindling, George W. Bush is still driving hard for a legacy. His pursuit may end up costing John McCain the presidency.

W's backsliding began when his administration decided to Obamacize the Iran issue, which means that Bush flip-flopped by agreeing to meet with the terrorist state sans any preconditions.

Strike one!

Next up, time lines, the Holy Grail of the Bush war policy in Iraq. On this one, conservatives thought there was no way W would cave in.

Oh, to have been a fly on the wall at McCain headquarters when it became known that W decided that a "Time Horizon" might work in Iraq.

Never mind that no one, least of all George W. Bush, knows what the hell "Time Horizon" means.

The point is that once again Bush pulled the rug out from under the presumptive Republican nominee, leaving John McCain with Obamamania on his face.

Strike two!

What next? A Bush endorsement of Obama?

That may sound ludicrous, but legacy trolling is a brutal game especially when the legacy seeker is a dyslexic lame duck whose conservative credentials have always been suspect to begin with!
