George W. does what Cheney tells him to do and what Karl Rove tells him to do. Do you remember the attack on McCain’s war record, and from a guy that bailed on National Guard Duty? These are not honorable people. They think they know everything, and that the citizens are chumps and too lazy to pay attention. Pride goeth before the fall.
W. got a free ride because of 9/11. As you can see (as everyone can see) he is horrible as a manager, and places his incompetent cronies in position of authority. If it weren't for 9/11 and the free pass and scare tactics he used to his advantage he would have never been reelected. His ineptness would have come to the fore under regular press scrutiny. That's his home state, a red state that he couldn't get evacuated properly. Those people are sitting ducks. Even the surfers know about opening up the opposite lanes. They even have a fancy word for it - contraflow - or something like that. It's impossible to imagine W. didn't say - have you opened up all the lanes - to the governor of his state.
After 9/11 it became a crime to publicly criticize W. But time has moved on and his free pass is over. Lo and behold as the flood waters breach (at this very moment) the levees in

Pretty strong and accurate words (remember the mission complete banner as he rode onto a carrier in a flight suit?) W. is pathetic. He's blatant incompetence wrapped up in an overabundance of arrogance. He is completely out of his element.
But the citizens elected him and the representatives in congress. The fault lies with them. Until the elections become less about right versus left and more about hey who the heck are these guys really we’ll always have this problem. Until people stop electing candidates because they hate gays or fear women and think rather hmmm what does it take to be a real leader, a solid manager, a clear thinker, a successful executive and what the heck is this guys track record, until we ignore the advertising, the smear tactics (thank you Karl Rove for taking that to new heights) until people take a measured look at each individual and vote their pocket books they deserve what they get
The difference between honorable men and corrupt individuals can not be summed up by their stand on abortion or gay marriage. We need a return to practicality and out with all the mumbo jumbo consternation about personal predilections and religious beliefs. Otherwise we are going to end up with a Hitler ourselves. Vote for the guy whose resume you like. Looks like W. can add another bankruptcy to his resume!
