Our President has been hit with numerous scandals, accusations of incompetence (almost all accurate) and serious Page 1, above-the-fold kind of problems that seemingly any other President would have been ashamed enough about to resign in embarrassment. But finally, it seems, he's getting hit with the silly, ridiculous kinds of things that plagued an actual leader, President Clinton:
President Bush found himself in a flap Tuesday about seat-belt use, a day after a federal agency began a campaign to encourage drivers to buckle up.
Video cameras caught Bush without his seat belt while driving a pickup on his Texas ranch last weekend, giving a tour to NATO Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer.
I mean, I believe in seatbelts and always wear mine in the front driver or passenger seat, and often in the back seat as well. But this "Click It or Ticket" thing has gotten a bit out of hand, and WHO CARES if Bush is too stupid to belt up? God, what a non-issue.
