W, CEO President...of Enron nation

Jeffrey Skilling, the former CEO of Enron and currently on trial for fraud, has a lot in common with President George ("the decider") Bush. They both live in a fantasy world. Skilling, brother of Chicago weatherman Tom Skilling, faces 28 counts of fraud, conspiracy and insider trading for his actions while leading Enron. In a defense strategy that takes your breath away Skilling doesn't argue that he didn't know about the fraud at Enron, he claims there was none. Sound familiar? It's not a question of how to correct the problems of the Iraq war, according to W and his gang that can't shoot straight there are none. If Jeffy-boy is acquitted of all charges look for him to be named the next Treasury Secretary. He'll fit right in.

Whether it's the size of the national debt, how the war has been handled, Rumsfeld's record, you name it and it's not a question that W didn't know about any problems it's that the problems don't exist. That's a quick way to clear your desk in time for a bike ride or five-week vacation. Good thing W isn't your doctor or plumber or mechanic. He's just the leader, pardon me, the decider of the free world and he's decided there aren't any problems that tax cuts and more prayer can't solve. That is if there were any problems which there aren't. He's not making lemonade out of lemons because lemons don't exist in W's world.

So the next time you read about some "problem" like civil war in Iraq or oil prices going to $100, don't worry. I have it on very good authority that those problems don't really exist. If they did they might actually have to be addressed and solved. It's much easier to be the CEO President of Enron nation.

It's just that the media isn't reporting the good stuff Enron did. That damn liberal media isn't properly explaining that stealing pensions from the employees makes them have to work more, which keeps the economy moving. This is good for America. I will obey, I will follow....

Is it 1984 yet?
