The things you own end up owning you.


On the day following his re-election Bush made the following observation:


"We had an accountability moment, and that's called the 2004 elections," Bush said in an interview with The Washington Post. "The American people listened to different assessments made about what was taking place in Iraq, and they looked at the two candidates, and chose me."

As you might expect today Bush is singing a different tune:


"I recognize that many Americans voted last night to register their displeasure with the lack of progress being made" in Iraq, the president said. "Yet I also believe most Americans - and leaders here in Washington from both political parties - understand we cannot accept defeat."

As has been aptly pointed out many times before by others "defeat" to George W. Bush means a signifigant withdrawal of our troops from Iraq. Yet this is exactly what the voters are demanding by yesterday's vote.

It's another "accountability moment," Mr. President. Time to open wide and take you medicine like a big boy.

I saw part of his press conference today. Last week it was "a vote for the Democrats is a vote for the terrorists". Today, of course, it was bipartisanship. I hope the Democrats come roaring out of the gate in January and make these people accountable.

I hope so too, Aaron.

It's ridiculous they've gotten away with so much for so long. But the damn is breaking...

Then the dems are going to have to pour his medicine into a spoon and make airplane sounds until he opens his mouth and swallows.
