well.... It's Dubya, so the usual saying doesn't apply: "I'll tell you no lies."
We KNOW Dubya doesn't give a fuck about lying. He lies in his SOTUs and laughs as he does it. He lies during press conferences and laughs as he does it. Sometimes he acts clueless as he lies; I'm not at all sure what that's about. So why would he give a mini-press conference and not take questions?
The last time I remember him doing this was back when he announced the Federal Marriage Amendment, which was an obvious pander. So what's the deal with today? We're on the verge of a depression. Four fucking paragraphs. That's it. Oh... he canceled a trip. But still...
Why no questions? ???
He enjoys lying.
He's obsessed with his legacy.
He panders to his base.
He covered his ass with the base by announcing/calling for a marriage amendment, but didn't really give a fuck about it enough to defend it to the press.
He covered his ass by announcing he'd stay in DC, but by not defending any position, did he not have one? or not care enough to formulate one? or just (as usual) not give a flying fuck about the county going down the shitter?
And pulling the world along...?
And what's McSame's position? Anyone keeping up with the clippity clops of his flippity flops?
