Gone to ground

The greatest financial crisis in the United States since the Great Depression and President Bush is in hiding. You would at least expect a few nonsense platitudes intended to buck up investor confidence, but nothing. Drinking again? Probably, and thus in no shape to be giving press conferences. The only good thing about all this is that it is obviously happening on Bush's watch, making it difficult for the usual suspects to blame it on President Obama (but they will find a way!).

The debate shouldn't be over whether Bush is the worst President in American history, but how many orders of magnitude worse he is than the second worst President.
