So when George W. Bush throws a complete non-sequitur like "And that's why I need Congress to give me a line-item veto" into the State of the Union Address it perfectly crystallizes my opinion of his tenure in office.

One of two things must be true in this situation. Either Bush is A) ignorant of the fact that the line-item veto was just declared unconstitutional in 1998 or B) he realizes this and simply doesn't care.

So which is he, arrogant or ignorant? I'm afraid I don't see a third way here.

    I would like to point out that when Bush was babbling about how cloning is bad, he said and I quote thinks "human-animal hybrids are unethical." I don't know about you, but I wish I was a human-animal hybrid and I would like to see these hybrids he is talking about.

    I also like how Bush has not vetoed virtually *a single* bill that has come across his desk. Implying that he would line-item veto out funding for head-start programs or other things that Congress can fumble out of the budget.

    I vote for option C, all of the above. He is so ignorant he has no idea how disgustingly arrogant he is.

    I wasn't sure if that said, "Take your pick" or "Take your prick."

    Either one works, I suppose.

    i also have to go with C… it helps that most 'mericans can really relate to him.
