Accountability moment

"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."


I never really bought that line of thinking. There were too many lies and distortions and too much slime going around for any clear-eyed "accountability moment."

But maybe the voters were on to something. Maybe the narrative that no one could see at the time was the voters saying, "he got us into this mess, let's stick with it for a while and see if he can get us out."

Well, it's been less than a year and the polls are saying that the public is writing him off.

President Bubble Boy: Your poll numbers are in the toilet. Your administration is soon to be indicted. You showed that you are in charge of nothing in your response to Hurricane Katrina. More and more, you seem to be nothing other than a figurehead, a showpiece for others who set the agenda.

This is your accountability moment.
