reeling in the big one

President Bush continues to amaze me. No, it’s not his 31% approval rating, a feat not accomplished since his father did it back in the early 90’s. Nor is it his continued insistence that he can break the law, in the case of the domestic wiretapping, because of “inherent constitutional powers”. Nor is it the amazing ability he has to take vacations yet still so effectively fulfill his role as the “leader of the free world”. If I was out of the office on vacation 40% percent of the time, I wouldn’t be able to get any work done and I don’t think my employer would be too thrilled with me. No, usually the most amazing things come from his mouth in the form of words.
Recently when asked what the best moment in his more than 5 years in the Oval Office has been, his answer was:
“I would say the best moment of all was when I caught a 7.5-pound perch in my lake”
Five years of being President and your greatest achievement is catching a fish? Wow. What more can you say other than just ‘wow’? His predecessors, Presidents Carter & Clinton, had answers such as historic peace agreements and major pieces of legislation. No mention of fish catching, or anything remotely related to something any private citizen could accomplish.
