Actually, if he’s not working, maybe he can do less damage. He’s hanging loose, as they say. A man of leisure, certainly not a “wartime president.” How many days has he been goofing off or grandstanding in front of the dwindling, fawning, hand-picked audiences while troops are getting blown up?
Look at this exchange, to the “travel pool” today in Donnelly, Idaho, while vacationing (yet again!) at the Tamarack Resort. He doesn’t know WTF he is talking about. Never mind, I know — he’s a sociopath and he just doesn’t give a damn. He’s “getting on with his life.” W. is for Women, right?
Q Does the administration’s goal — I’ll ask you about the Iraqi constitution. You said you’re confident that it will honor the rights of women.
THE PRESIDENT: Yes.
Q If it’s rooted in Islam, as it seems it will be, is that still — is there still the possibility of honoring the rights of women?
THE PRESIDENT: I talked to Condi, and there is not — as I understand it, the way the constitution is written is that women have got rights, inherent rights recognized in the constitution, and that the constitution talks about not “the religion,” but “a religion.” Twenty-five percent of the assembly is going to be women, which is a — is embedded in the constitution.

Tonight I’m going to be dining with the Governor and the delegation from Idaho, spend a little quality time with the First Lady here in this beautiful part of the world. I may go for a bike ride.
Q Any fishing?
THE PRESIDENT: I don’t know yet. I haven’t made up my mind yet. I’m kind of hanging loose, as they say.
