Hang in there, America: Competent leadership is just 600-plus days away

McClatchy
Excerpt
As of May 28th, there were 602 days left until Jan. 20, 2009, and the end of our long national nightmare as President George W. Bush and his Rasputin, Vice President Dick Cheney, shuffle off to their necessarily well-guarded retirement homes and onto the ash heap of history.

So much of what they talked about doing in a new century and a new and different world never came to pass. So much of what they did to grow the power of the presidency and prune the constitutional safeguards crafted by our Founding Fathers, they never talked about.

The American people have turned their backs on George Bush and his dreams of planting the seeds of democracy in Mesopotamia at the point of a gun and seeing them spread like kudzu across the Middle East.

He’s failed in his quest for victory in Iraq and for a world put in order by a new and stronger United States, and his brash blundering into a dangerous land has made us all much less safe.

The president’s approval ratings are below his knees, sinking to 28 percent in one recent poll, and he cannot recover short of the kind of miracle that parts seas and feeds the multitudes.

The war that was never ours to win by military means – the only button this president who never learned war ever learned how to push – is lost. Bush and Cheney and the rest of their cronies and co-conspirators are toast.

The question is: How did such ordinary-looking men – seemingly unable to carry out even the smallest non-political tasks of governing – succeed in doing such extraordinary and lasting damage to our country, our military and our body politic in so few years?

    Tried to e-mail the author of this column, His e-mail bos is full. Didn;t say full of what, but I have my own ideas on that.

    “As democracy is perfected, the office of the president represents more and more closely the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”–H.L. Mencken

    Damned if Old Henry wasn’t right….

    Yeah until some other lifer takes the office of President and ruins the country for his or her party.
