Via the NYTimes (and oh, aren't they getting a little snarky lately?), chimpy tries to regain initiative by looking ahead... to being exactly like he's been all along.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 3 — President Bush sought today to regain the initiative on the eve of the Democratic takeover of Congress, pledging to work enthusiastically with the new lineup of lawmakers but holding fast to his own goals.
Offering his congratulations to the incoming 110th Congress, Mr. Bush made it clear that he will resist being painted as a lame-duck president in his last two years — “one-quarter of my presidency, plenty of time to accomplish important things for the American people,” as he put it in an essay in The Wall Street Journal today.
In other words, he's enthusiastic about his idea that democrats should give him the same rubber stamp the republican party gave him.
Mr. Bush struck the same tone this morning in remarks after a Cabinet meeting. He voiced the hope that Democrats and Republicans alike “can find common ground to serve our folks,” and then sounded much as he did last summer and fall while campaigning for Republican candidates and positions. (my emphasis added)
Note to chimpy, when the NYTimes is calling you on your bullshit, the gig is up. Calling yourself a "tiger" doesn't change the fact that you're actually a lame-duck.
Or maybe a chimducken. Eeeeeeewwww.
