Beltway Horoscope Watch: That Which Does Not Kill Bush Only Makes Him Stronger
President Bush's popularity rating is taking a beating these days, in large part due to the continuing bad news from Iraq. Talk of impeachment and censure is starting to build.
But the stars bring Bush some good news. Born on July 6, 1946, Bush is a Cancer. So, taking a page from the Nancy Reagan playbook, we checked out his daily horoscope (from the hard copy Washington Post; the online version is different, but we view the hard copy horoscope as more reliable):
Against all odds, you will succeed. If you're not against enough odds, you may not have enough to succeed. So play the biggest game you can today.
See? Victory in Iraq and recovery in Bush's popularity are inevitable. But Bush needs setbacks and opposition in order to succeed.
Censure? Bring it on, Russ!
