The Washington Post had an article on October 31, 2007, about how Bush is so frustrated that the Democrats won't do what he wants that he is considering governing by issuing executive orders, which bypass Congress, vetoing legislation, and complaining about Democrats. This is a quote from the article:
Bush himself has been complaining more and more bitterly about congressional Democrats in recent weeks. In a private meeting yesterday with House Republicans in the East Room of the White House, Bush recalled how he had been able to work with Democrats when he was Texas governor and said he had hoped to find the same relationships in Washington.
"He sort of longs for those days, when both sides were genuinely interested in getting along and getting a deal," said Rep. Adam H. Putnam (R-Fla.), the chairman of the House Republican Conference, who helped organize yesterday's White House meeting, attended by about 150 Republicans.
Now we all know that when Bush's idea of getting along means that you give him what he wants and his idea of compromise is that you just give in to him. This man has the emotional maturity of your average three year old, except, of course, your average three year old is a lot cuter.
Bush was used to dealing with Texas Democrats who, at least those in the state government, are a lot more conservative than say Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid. Further, when you spend the first six years of your presidency bashing Democrats, demonizing them, working to defeat their Congressional leadership, questioning their patriotism, helping "Swift-boat" their 2004 presidential nominee, not to mention repeatedly lying to them, don't expect them to fall in line when they have power. Of course, your average three year old doesn't recognize that he or she has to respect the rights of others and either does Bush.
Given though his reaction to being held accountable is not to try and genuinely work with Democrats or genuinely compromise, but rather stamp his feet and complain, MCDAC has decided that Bush is not the Decider, but the Whiner.
