A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Delta House Needs to be Expelled from Faber 

Mr. President, it seems the bad news has been coming fast and furious over the last several months. I'll just lay out some of the major events:

The almost universal dissatisfaction with the Medicare Drug Benefit program.

The unexpected election of Hamas in a fair, democratic election in Palestine.

The arrest of Scooter Libby and the ongoing investigation into the disclosure of the identity of a CIA operative in an act of political vengeance which many consider treasonous.

The ongoing reconstruction of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast which has been subject to delays, corruption and incompetence.

The uproar over the sale of port operations to a government owned corporation with which you, members of your family and members of your administration have substantial business and personal ties. Additionally, it appears the process was in violation of standard procedures as well as not requiring customary safeguards.

The bombing of the mosque and the escalating violence in Iraq which many believe is the tipping point in an all-out sectarian civil war.

The billions of dollars which are missing in Iraq that were supposed to provide much need reconstruction but are unaccounted for.

The accidental shooting by the VP of his close friend and the mishandling of the aftermath along with allegations that Cheney was drunk.

The NSA surveillance of American citizens which many have concluded was in violation of the law and the Constitution.

The Katrina response and the statements made about information that your administration had and when they had it that seems to be contrary to the facts.

Your reluctance to end your vacation and pre-planned photo-ops when New Orleans was in desperate need of national leadership.

The mounting evidence that not only did you not win the election in 2000, that the 2004 vote was corrupted as well.

And finally, the new poll results that only 34% of the American people approve of your job performance.

So, what will you do to stem the tide of negative bad new that seems to be plaguing your administration?
