So here I am watching the Republican national convention. Laura Bush is on right now. She's going to introduce President Bush who will speak via video because he's using the hurricane to not show up to his own party's convention. Think about this. The man was their hero for 8 years. They nominated him twice and rigged a couple of elections to get him in office. And tonight he'll speak, via video, for a scheduled 8 minutes. I'll pause now to listen... He started speaking at 9:54 pm EST. He wrapped up right on time at 10:02 pm EST.

He led with a reference to his missing the convention because of Gustav and public service announcement about listening to local authorities in the aftermath of the storm. I'm really annoyed by one thing Bush said: "If the Hanoi Hilton cannot break John McCain's resolve ... you can bet that the angry left never will." I think this is exactly why Obama has such appeal. People are sick of politicians identifying their opponents in elections as "the enemy."
8 years in office and all his party gave him was 8 minutes that weren't even aired live on the three major networks.
