Bush unnerstans planning. He's a planning preznit...

and has finally realized they won't let him qualify for the Great Presidents of the United States ranking so he can be better'n Poppy until he has a plan.

Via Dependable Renegade:
"Bush: I think most Americans fully understand the importance of success; they're wondering whether we have a plan to succeed. It's my job to listen to a lot of opinions and come up with a strategy that says we have a plan."

On the order of one of the twenty different reasons we invaded Iraq, right? Remember this hilarious quote from Bush's 2004 State of the Union speech?:
"Some in this chamber, and in our country, did not support the liberation of Iraq. Objections to war often come from principled motives. But let us be candid about the consequences of leaving Saddam Hussein in power. We are seeking all the facts - already the Kay Report identified dozens of weapons of mass destruction-related program activities and significant amounts of equipment that Iraq concealed from the United Nations."

Maybe Bush thinks that the more adjectives crammed onto one noun makes it sound all profound and shit, but it ends up making him sound stupid and makes us look moronic.

George, I hate to break it to you, but it's already too late. You missed the final and you've failed the class. You don't invade countries and then try to think of a plan. You have a plan, a real reason for putting the wealth and prestige and the lives of our young soldiers at stake, you announce that reason to Congress, and if it's a good reason, George, they let you go to war. You've broken so many rules and laws to get to where you are right now, George, that you can't lie, deny, blame, or cheat your way out the mess. Poppy can't help you. The Saudis are pissed at you. The citizens of your own country hate you. The world thinks you are a terrorist.

So don't tell us "It's my job to listen to a lot of opinions and come up with a strategy that says we have a plan."

Saying you have a plan and actually having a plan are two different things. Having a strategy to say you have a plan says you don't have a plan and you have no idea how to get one.

And we don't give a flying fuck what you think your job is. It is painfully obvious it is too hard for you.

Update 12/18: Pachacutec at Firedoglake: Not my president. Indeed.
