This is all just "Background Noise"

Dubya put his lower leg in his mouth this morning when he uttered this in response to a question about the myriad of problems facing his administration:

"There is some background noise here, a lot of chatter, a lot of speculation and opining, but the American people expect me to do my job and I'm going to." (Source: AP)

Ladies and gentlemen, we are watching the art of mitigation at it's worst. It's almost on par with Baghdad Bob, remember him? Standing there and proclaiming the opposite of what we can see right behind him.

Things are coming apart at the seams for this administration and little one-off soundbites don't cut it anymore.

Stop insulting us with your arrogance and hubris.
