Truly, the faith-based presidency.

What can you even say any more?

On the economic front [Bush] insisted that, even with tax cuts, his government was "staying on track to cut the deficit in half by 2009," but he made no mention of the fact that his Treasury secretary, John W. Snow, asked Congress on Thursday to raise the debt limit again, the fourth time in Mr. Bush's presidency, so that the government can borrow more money, largely for increases in military and entitlement programs.

And things are going just fine in Iraq, thanks, pay no attention to that recent sham of an election, the still-growing insurgency and, well, that increasing number of dead U.S. troops.

Remember, these are the folks for whom the phrase "reality-based" was an insult.
