Passport...What passport?

On April 14, 2005 President Bush let us know that he's shocked to learn that passports will be required to enter the U.S. from Mexico or Canada. The passport thing isn't breaking news either. It was officially announced on April 5. The policy was in the works for months. Senior government officials with the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security have said that they were in extensive contact with the Whitehouse regarding the policy change, yet this seems to be the first Bush has heard about it. That's nine days after being announced and making the press.

This means that Bush is either completely out of touch with what is happening in this country or he chooses to play stupid. Either way it's bad news for U.S. citizens.

The passport requirement is to take effect by 2008. Just how did this happen right under Bush's nose without his knowledge? Well that's a good question considering it was part of an intelligent reform bill that he signed himself last year. I guess he just didn't bother reading it, or even having somebody brief him on what the bill entailed.

Maybe he was just to busy working on not putting together a plan for social security so that he could travel the country at the tax payers expense in order to promote...well, nothing. Or maybe he's just an egomaniacal meat puppet with his head so far up his own ass that it actually appears to be sitting on his shoulders.

The only person I can think of in recent history that thought of himself in such a way was Adolph Hitler. But unlike Bush, Hitler actually had leadership qualities to go along with his over inflated sense of self worth and importance. Even Saddam Hussein with his over inflated ego and sense of grandiose being, at least knew what was happening in his own government.
