I didn't bother to liveblog the SOTU address. I'm just miffed that it pre-empted Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Honestly, Bush should quit thinking about his legacy. It's too late. He can't fix it. He can't do anything positive that would make anyone forget eight years of scandals and disasters. Most Americans think he's a crappy president who's made America and the world a worse place. The only people who like the guy are mouthbreathers, dittoheads, neocons, wingnut welfare recipients, and the staff of the Weekly Standard.
Really, people are just sick of him. They want his presidency to be over. They want him gone. They want a president who isn't an empty suit. They want someone who'll actually govern and who actually holds some American values.
Hopefully, the GOP will avoid nominating Jeb Bush in 2012. Really, let's pass a constitutional amendment banning all descendants of Prescott Bush from running for political office anywhere in America. Who else thinks it's a good idea?
