Via Pajamas Media comes this editorial from Richard Fernandez, with some commentary on Chris Matthews’ latest foot-in-mouth incident: He wants President Bush to just resign today so that Obama can take office sooner. (video at GatewayPundit)
Chris, old buddy, I know that tingling leg of yours must be enough to drive you nuts, but for all your whining about how Bush has stomped all over the Constitution you really don’t seem to give that much thought to it yourself. You realize that Obama hasn’t been elected yet, right? That pesky election nonsense just getting in the way of annointing your new messiah, and your goal of “making his presidency a success,” I know. But you need to wait til December 15th before it’s official, and January 20th before he can take office. It’s kind of how the system works – and that’s per the Constitution. We all know you really don’t care about it, but at least pay it some lip service once in a while, alright? How classless and tasteless can you get, man?
Of course, if Bush DID step down then that would make Dick Cheney the president… wonder how many heads would explode over that one.
