Wow, what an analysis, and from Businessweek, no less. Because they’re such the pinko-commie rag.
SPUTTERING SCREWUP. The poignancy of a man ill-prepared for and overwhelmed by his job was never more apparent than when Bush said, “I never wanted to commit troops. When we were debating in 2000, I never dreamed I’d have to do that.”
The message that Kerry hammered home was that, in fact, Bush did not have to “do that,” did not have to send our soldiers — at least not to Iraq.
But Bush, the onetime black sheep of his family, wanted to wipe away the “wimp factor” stain that his old man had left on the Bush clan. And so he rebelled against the family mantra of prudence in all things. Last night, he looked for all the world like a sputtering screwup — again.
