The Bush Years, Part One: Bush and the Weather
June, 2004. The OYSH headline that captures the entire Bush Presidency:
Bush Says Umbrella Working "Just Fine"
President Bush said that his present umbrella was "working perfectly" and rejected calls for a new one.
And in August, 2004, during the 2004 election cycle, when Bush beat us like a drum with his "everything I'm doing I'm doing for the sake of national security" lie, telling us Kerry was soft on terrorism, a particularly prescient OYSH story, just one year before Katrina:
Bush Says Kerry Soft On Weather
Electing Kerry Is Just What Terrible Weather Wants, Says GOP -- Bush announced plans to invade Cuba and Jamaica in what he called a "preemptive strike" against future Category 4 hurricanes. . . .
The truth was the terrible weather wanted Bush to be President all along.
