He ain't finished yet!
PRESIDENT BUSH, the self-proclaimed decider who has been exiled by his own party since the GOP convention, is still trying to recapture a few moments of past glory in the closing days of his residency in the Oval Office. Apparently hopeful that he will be best remembered by the people who sustained him for 8 dark years in the White House, Bush is calling for new rules to relax federal regulations on several environmental fronts: disposal of radioactive waste, mining exploration, commercial fishing, auto emissions, etc. I would place this in the category of a reverse Hail Mary pass. But for those of us who found little cheer in the Bush presidency, I would offer this consolation prize: As of today, there are only 80 days left to his nightmarish run since the fateful day when the U.S Supreme Court, by a single vote, granted him the job. You can celebrate, if you wish, by going shopping.
