If there is anything scarier to a guy looking to be reelected than this, I don't know what it would be -- short of Ann Coulter surprising you in your hotel room, naked and waving at you, while her hands behind her back!
(You get that right? You don't want me to draw you a picture do you?)
Despite his low standing in the polls, President Bush is working to help Republican House and Senate candidates build their campaign war chests while promoting his own troubled agenda.
The president is expected to assume the campaign role more often in the coming months as the 2006 congressional election year begins.
Will Bush, for the first time in his Presidency actually go out without a hand-picked crowd? Don't count on it. The speeches he will be giving will continue to be pre-screened and pre-picked. The guy makes Nixon look like a "man o' the people". I know a few places Bush won't be coming in 2006, the Northeast; the Midwest; the Northwest; the Pacific Coast; the Rust Belt. So he's hitting them now (hoping that people will forget he was there)
If C Plus Augustus could sit on his ass the next three years at the ChickenRanch in Crawford, he'd be doing that -- and frankly most of us would prefer that.
Oh, and the title...at the end...
"The president looks forward to campaigning on behalf of those who support his agenda to make America stronger and safer," White House spokesman Scott McClellan said Monday.
Is Scotty just putting out 1 page ditto's now?
