W. to Bush Sr.--"I'm doing fine, dad!"

Bush Sr. can't even bring himself to watch the surge debate:

As the House gets ready to begin debating the Iraq war today, President Bush has a piece of advice for his father: Turn off the television.

It seems that former president George H.W. Bush has been getting agitated watching all the attacks on his son -- so much so that the current president said yesterday that he is worried for his father's well-being.

"I am actually more concerned about him than I have ever been in my life, because he's paying too much attention to the news," the president told C-SPAN in an interview to be broadcast this morning. "And I understand how difficult it is for a person who loves somebody to see them out in the political process and to kind of endure the criticism. My answer to him is: 'Look, don't pay attention to it. I'm doing fine.' "

That is advice he apparently intends to follow himself. Bush has no plans to watch the House debate his decision to send 21,500 more troops to Iraq.

"You know, I've got a full day," he said. "I mean, it's not as if the world stops when the Congress does their duty."

Besides, he added: "I already know what the debate is. I hear a lot of opinions." [WaPo]

Somehow, I don't think Bush 41 is just agitated because so many people are attacking Bush 43. He's agitated because he knows the attacks are well-placed and there's nothing he can do about it.

Junior, fishing as always for our admiration, never tires of reminding the world how cool and even-headed he is in the face of criticism. Not very convincing, considering that he's erected for himself perhaps the most formidable bubble in American presidential history.

I do feel just a tiny bit of compassion for the old man though. If I were the wife/mother/sister/daughter of the current President, I'd be very tempted (for the sake of both the country, and the family name) to pull an Elizabeth Urquhart.

"Cassandra...?"

"Shhhhh. You're safe now, George. Nothing more to fear."

Good one, cass.

He just went for the sympathy surge of popularity twice recently.
He's desperate and dinged up.

F him.
He needs to get out of my WhiteHouse

Byline Peter Baker. Does he go out in the barnyard and roll around in it, or what?

Besides, he added: "I already know what the debate is. I hear a lot of opinions."

And he's already decided what his response will be, regardless of what Congress does. He's the Decider, and no other opinions matter.
