Lame Duck? Hardly.

I don't understand (well, okay, I do) the lefty talking point referring to Pres. Bush as a Lame Duck. Painting him as in a downhill side, in his autumn years, on the back slope of the presidential mountain.

Huh?! The dude just got elected to another four year term as president. He doesn't have to worry about his poll numbers, so screw em!

He's got a great opportunity here. What's the downside? Run roughshod over the politically correct poobas. Give the metaphorical political finger to his opponents. What are they gonna do?

The term "lame duck" applies to a President who hasn't been re-elected, in that period between the election and the inaguration. Absolutely no application here whatsoever.
