Bush Refusing to Consider Democrat Led Congress October 31, 2006

Posted by Unreasonable in Matters Democratic.

I’ve been trying to avoid politics because it makes me angry, but this is too good to pass up. This is the transcript from Ze Frank’s “The Show” on Friday:

In a recent press conference, White House spokesman Tony Fratto was asked about reports that the president refuses to engage in any strategic planning to deal with the possibility of a Democratic takeover.

Mr. Fratto replied:

I think the President has been very clear that’s he’s preparing for a Congress that has Republican leadership and that’s the way we’ll continue to proceed, it’s the only way to proceed.

Asked why the president wouldn’t consider planning for both alternatives, Fratto said:

We’re still in the game and if you’re in the game, you’re in it to win.

The reporter, obviously an undercover sportsracer, responded by saying:

Government isn’t a game, and you are governing, and so your responsibility is to prepare for how to govern, regardless of how it turns out. So it may be a game in the political sense, but it’s really not a game to Americans who want their government to be ready to do what needs to be done.


Mr. Fratto replied:

He’ll be ready.

See? It’s under control.
