Don't you miss the days when he was busy taking vacations and "clearing brush" on the ranch?

From the Guardian (UK):
Tens of thousands of Syrians jammed the centre of Damascus yesterday in a rally organised by the government in support of President Bashar al-Assad, who is under strong international pressure to withdraw troops from Lebanon. The demonstrators in Damascus denounced Washington's pressure, burning US flags as riot police took up position around the embassy.
"Of course we expect more American pressure," the information minister, Mehdi Dakhlallah, said. "President Bush is speaking daily about Syria as if he has no other work."

And as a precaution, the Syrian government and businesses are transferring funds from US banks to Europe.
