Chances are it won't. But ever since Bush introduced his little
National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive, his self-proclaimed Dictator-In-Chiefability comes to mind.
President George W. Bush on Saturday approved a pre-landfall emergency declaration for Texas to provide federal help if the state is hit by Hurricane Dean, White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe said.
According to his directive, if any event takes place that Bush decides is an "emergency", he could pretty much be the one and only boss of us. Absolute power to an absolute idiot. It's that possibility that I can't shake off, and it's pathetic that this has become my knee-jerk reaction. Want to know what's more pathetic? The italicized part, that's what:
Bush, who is vacationing at his Crawford ranch, was briefed twice on Saturday about Hurricane Dean, which is threatening to become a Category 5 storm and is taking aim at Jamaica and Mexico.
Adding insult to injury, it seems like every time there is impending disaster, The Vacation President is taking one of his 418 days off.

So the odds are that Bush's insane power grab would most likely occur while he's putting his brush-scuffed boots up in Crawford. Heckuva job, Georgie.

Blogger ate my fonts again. Blogger hates me.

Well, maybe the randomly changing font styles will amuse the rest of you.

As for me, I need a hot tub somewhere in a resort far, far from here.

Also notice how fast he declares an emergency when it is Texas that is under threat. What the hell is he going to do if the storm turns off the predicted course and slams into Louisiana and Mississippi... claim that such an occurrence could not have been predicted?

That's what he would do, all right. After all, how could he know that a storm could actually surprise all the Jolly Weather Men and take a sudden turn?

And the Utah mine collapse was the result of an earthquake.

When you're always on vacation of course stuff is going to happen when you're out. Besides the way this administration handles emergencies I'd be worried about Texas right about now.

So, now he's the 'emergency President'... the Emergencier... we can all sleep better knowing he's on the job.
