Does Bush Know This?

Note to lame duck George Bush from the Boston Globe:
"The less successful the war has been, the less plausible it has been for Bush to be stomping around in his cowboy boots," said Ralph Whitehead, a professor at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. "The plausibility of Bush's electoral swagger as the campaigner-in-chief for his party depends to some extent on the plausibility of his military swagger as commander-in-chief of his country's presence in Iraq."
To many of us the idea that such a dim-witted failure of a man could be the commander-in-chief of our military and the leader of a free democratic country has always been implausible.
