"They cite inflation?" Bush asked, adding that, "I happen to believe the war has clouded a lot of people's sense of optimism."

I really don't blame the President for being so clueless in a small way. He doesn't go grocery shopping, nor would it make any sense for him to do so.

But anyone who buys groceries understands the sticker shock.

The President, who has never demonstrated that he is very keyed in to the understanding of every day life of most Americans, let alone Americans who conceive of themselves as "conservative," is just showing his simplistic arrogance here. The war and the price of groceries have nothing to do with each other in the mind of anyone, period.

And people's sense of optimism? Really ... oh my goodness ... is it possible to get more incoherent or clueless than that statement?

The very discouraging thought is that this President without a doubt was better to elect than Gore or Kerry. No question about it.

But the Carter, Bush, Clinton, Bush, string of presidents, a string where the word mediocre would be extravagant, exaggerated praise if used to describe them, is too much to take.

Apparently, no one ever loses by underestimating and insulting the intelligence of the American people.
