The Sun Will Rise From The West Tomorrow

I never, ever imagined I would say this but George W. Bush is absolutely right!!!!

US President George W Bush joked about sliding ratings and his post-White House plans as he lampooned himself at an annual press dinner on Wednesday.

“A year ago my approval rating was in the 30s, my nominee for the Supreme Court had just withdrawn, and my vice-president had shot someone.

“Ah, those were the good ol’ days,” he said, to applause from the audience.

Journalists were also treated to a Karl Rove rap at the meal where presidential self-deprecation is the tradition.

One of the biggest laughs came when the president spoke of plans for his post-White House memoir – he said that former President Bill Clinton had written a 10,000 page-long tome.

“I’m thinking of something really fun and creative for mine,” he said. “You know, maybe a pop-up book.”

He asked the audience which title they liked best – “How Dubbya Got His Groove Back”, “Who Moved My Presidency?” or “Tuesday with Cheney”.

My question is this…………does this kind of humour justify 3,245 dead American soldiers?
