Scroll for updates…

President Bush will give a year-in-review press conference at 10am. Here’s my 10-second version:

The good: The surge, the S-CHIP vetoes.

The bad: Abdication on earmarks, submission to the global warming alarmists and enviro-meddlers, the Annapolis folly.

The ugly: Shameful shamnesty.

Add your own to the list.

On the upside, he didn’t have as bad a year as the do-nothing, White Flag Dems. Headline: “Democratic Congress Recesses With A Whimper.” Talk about an annus horribilis.

***

10:03am Eastern. Bush includes homeowner bailout measures among his proud accomplishments. Ugh. Bush laments the omnibus spending behemoth and wasted time. Bush criticizes earmarks, but…he’s going to approve them. Says he will appoint Budget Director Jim Nussle to review “options” to deal with the pork. Criticizes Dems’ tabling of FISA reform bill.

10:10am Eastern. First question is on the CIA tape destruction story. Will “reserve judgement” until inquiries and oversight hearings are complete.

Second question on Putin, Man on the Year designation and state of democracy in Russia. “I presume they put him there because he is a consequential leader.” He says prime minister rumors are speculation…”we’ll wait and see what happens.”

Third question on Democrats’ agenda failures. “I don’t view life as zero-sum.” Defends vetoes.

10:16am Eastern. He’s touting No Child Left Behind. Ugh.

Question about presidential race. What are important qualities? “You can’t be the president unless you have a firm set of principles to guide you.” “How do you intend to set up your Oval Office?”

Next: Brett Baier asks about the Afghanistan review. Reviews are “good governance.”

10:30am Eastern. Talks up his global warming strategy and the Big Greenie energy bill.

10:41am Eastern. Middle East: “Syria needs to stay out of Lebanon.”

Mike Allen repeatedly tries to get Bush to talk about the presidential race. “You’re trying to get me to be opiner-in-chief…I’m not going to do so…I believe we will keep the White House…”

10:50am Eastern. End.
