Presidential Amnesia


President Bush says the national anthem should only be sung in English, but he was apparently singing a different tune during his first run for President and at his inaugural festivities.
On the campaign trail in 1999, Bush would often sing along as the national anthem
was sung in Spanish during stops in Hispanic communities, GOP scholar Kevin Phillips wrote in his book "American Dynasty."

U.S. Senator Trent Lott left a phone message on a recent morning for new White House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten, telling him there was no need for a return call. He got one anyway.

This, he absurdly insists, is not an "arrest."

Lame Duck Dumb Duck


With eight months left in office, Gov. Jeb Bush is more helpless bystander than lame duck.

He waits for his final hurricane season in office with a worrisome new wrinkle: The potential for a Katrina-like flood disaster around Lake Okeechobee, with warnings about a weakened dike that could fail in a big storm and
bring New Orleans-type misery to Belle Glade and Pahokee.
