578 Days

578 days until Liberty Day. 578 days until we say goodbye to Dumb and Scarier here to the left of us. what did our country possibly see in these two that convinced them we would be better off having these guys run the country? Was it their charisma? Was it there vision for the future? Was it "That certain something"?
Whatever the reason, we've elected these guys twice. Granted the first one was very fishy regarding the results, but none the less they got the job. Problem I have with them, is that they behave like they "own" the place, and not that they are temporary occupants of the office.
Hubris is defined as overbearing pride evidenced by a superior manner toward inferiors
While it is common for presidents to have incredible egos, it's not common for them to think they deserve unquestioned loyalty and that every branch of the government out to kneel and bow to their wishes and that they are not bound by any rule or law that they don't like.
Now, the The White House said Friday that, like Vice President Dick Cheney's office, President Bush's office is exempt from a presidential order requiring government agencies that handle classified national security information to submit to oversight by an independent federal watchdog," the Los Angeles Times will report today.
Reason 578 for wanting this rotting, festering and putrid administration to end: Hubris.
Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.
-- Proverbs 16: 18-19 (KJV)
Supposedly the President is a religious man. Perhaps he should reread this passage of the Bible.
