Bush gives the White House the Obama look months before scheduled

Washington, DC - Meeting with Iran for direct talks, pledging to shore up Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac with liquidity to stabilize the failing mortgage market and now agreeing to a time line on U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq, Bush's extreme White House makeover is making Obama's campaign promises come true months early.

"Bush is stealing Obama's foreign policy," said a spokesman for the DNC. "What's next, Universal Health care?"

White House officials deny that they have co-opted any of Obama's ideas and insist that they are merely caring out plans they had in the works long ago.

"Our plan to set a time line to bring our troops back home was in the pipe months before Obama said he would do those things if elected President of the United States," said a spokesman for the White House. "And as for talking directly with Iranian leaders to defuse a potentially explosive situation, the State Department was merely waiting for a hotel reservation to open up that came with free cable, a complementary Continental Breakfast and an ice making machine in the hallway."

Both members of the GOP and the DNC were reportedly up set at Bush's extreme White House makeover, saying that it is only undermining both the McCain and Obama campaign, confusing the liberal conservative base of each party.

"Come the fall," said a spokesman for the DNC. "Our voters will not be able to tell the difference between the conservative and liberal presidential candidates based on Bush's adopting Obama's campaign promises."

"Thank God for California's same-sex marriage ruling and voter referendum against it in November," said a spokesman for the GOP. "That will finally show the American electorate what the difference between voting Republican and Democrat is really all about."
