Bush not happy

dubyaPresident Bush has told Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld he was “not happy” that he learned about photos of Iraqi prison abuse by watching television, a senior administration official told CNN.

Does this surprise anyone? It has been obvious for quite some time that Bush is not in control of his administration. Perhaps he is simply not intelligent enough to be. What other president would have required his vice-president to be with him when speaking to a congressional committee? Cheney and Rumsfeld have been the powers, and Bush probably does not even realize how much he is being tooled. Whatever else he is, I don’t believe Bush is deliberately lying, or intentionally sabotaging our country’s interests. I believe he is just incapable of discerning truth, or effective leading, or making decisions based on fact rather than emotion and belief. In some ways it would be more comforting if he were a conniving, malfeasant leader, rather than just incompetent.

Perhaps the republicans should have nominated Cheney 4 years ago.
