SOTU: Bush living in a state of delusion

Let’s get right to it. Bush, the poor guy, is living in a state of delusion. He’s acting and talking more and more like the nutty uncle who shows up at family holiday parties and has everyone taping their eyebrows open as he bores them to near-death with the same old, tired routine year after year after year.
Here he is again, a tragic and needless war being fought in Iraq, a war that has taken over 3000 of our best and many thousands more Iraqis, a war that has diverted our energy and resources from the larger war on global terror and the President of the United States stands on the floor of the House and actually says, “We can work through our differences.”

This, after nearly seven years when the people around him have spent unusual amounts of energy trashing or ignoring anyone who disagreed or even sought to discuss the obvious differences that divide the nation.
