A Sweaty Gambler…

That is how Bush appears to me these days. A man who went into a casino to blow off some excess cash, have a good time. With luck turning a blind eye, the man soon has gone through his paycheck, and shortly later has run up enormous credit. He knows he should quit, yet he carries doggedly on, cursing his “luck”. Hoping beyond hope, praying that the next coin will pay off. Mopping his brow, he continues feeding money into the machine….”I can’t quit now, so much is at stake.”

Asking him to leave only infuriates him. “Can’t you see” hi cries, “if I leave now, we lose so much?”
