He should have excused himself and acted like the President. You know, LEAD! But, that would be something he's never done, not in the entire 8 years he was in office. Without his brains with him he didn't have the first idea what to do. He was a puppet of Cheney and Rove and Rummy. He is a pathetic coward. It's only a matter of time before he pays for his crimes. Maybe a conviction. Maybe a pardon. Wouldn't that be interesting. It would stain his already dog poo smelling legacy even further into the mud.
You neo-cons are going to see how a real leader leads. You're going to see how a real leader gathers intelligence and actually "decides". This President actually reads. That must scare the dickens out of all of you. You can do the melon-head immitation all you want. The louder you cry, the more obvious it is you're scared. Neo-cons are dead in this country. Forever!
