How much does the GOP not like Bush? He couldn't even crack the 10 minute mark at the RNC convention tonight as he tried to introduce John McCain to America. He is very, very, very optimistic though...(h/t Heather)

Here's the text of the speech....

Oh, and did you hear the canned Chuck Berry music in the background after Frederick of Hollywood spoke? Embarrassing.

UPDATE: I almost forgot. Bush never really mentioned the economy either. WOW, what a shocker.

John is a steadfast opponent of wasteful spending. As president, he will stand up to the high-tax crowd in Congress and make the tax relief permanent. He will invest in the energy technologies of tomorrow and lift the ban on drilling for America's offshore oil today.

That's it. I guess he's attacking himself. How is the economy doing under Conservative rule, Mr. Bush?

Can you help us out?
