Mr. Nixon, Please Hold for Mr. Dubya
Perhaps you missed this in today's Dallas Morning News; among those who did not were Think Progress and Salon's "War Room" reporter Tim Grieve. And by this, I mean a syndicated column from Universal Press Syndicate's 40-year veteran Georgie Anne Geyer, who writes about a visit President Bush recently received from a few big-money buddies from around these here parts:
By all reports, President Bush is more convinced than ever of his righteousness.
Friends of his from Texas were shocked recently to find him nearly wild-eyed, thumping himself on the chest three times while he repeated "I am the president!" He also made it clear he was setting Iraq up so his successor could not get out of "our country's destiny."
As Grieve points out, this is but one version of the story that's been making the rounds of late. Problem is, they all kind of sound the same. --Robert Wilonsky
