A Good Year!?

According to President Dubya, “It’s been a good year for the American people,” So saying, he took off on yet another vacation. Here he proves once again that he is living in an entirely different world from the people.

Of course it has been a very good year for Bush and his rich friends. You can’t argue with that. But ask the factory labor and cannon fodder how they’re faring, and you’ll get a completely different story. Bush’s cloistered existence insulates him from knowledge of reality for the rest of us, which he appears to have no interest in, anyway.

Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, always protected, never having to wonder where this month’s rent will come from, or how to put food on the table — this is the world of George W. Bush. He couldn’t know or understand the precarious, day-to-day, hand-to-mouth existence of the rest of us. That’s why he ignores the pleas of the needy who cannot afford heating oil, prompting Venezuela to step in and provide relief. That’s why Bush refused help from other countries which offered to help Katrina victims. We little people are just disposable to him.

Calling 2005 “a good year for the American people” is just propaganda. Here’s hoping that this callous “King of Vacations” decides to stay on vacation and not go back to Washington.
