Bush's Wooden-headedness Kills

Historian Barbara Tuchman defined "Wooden-headedness" as the condition wherein a leader "assesses a situation in terms of preconceived fixed notions while ignoring or rejecting any contrary signs. It is acting according to wish while not allowing oneself to be deflected by the facts."

The Consortium News has an excellent article on how Tuchman's thesis applies to George W. Bush. The article is by Ray McGovern.

It helps to bear in mind that Bush believes that God appointed him or anointed him to be president (and the lack of a capital P is not coincidednetal).

If he were a true Christian he'd know the paradox of leadership: the mightiest leader must be the most humble servant. Jesus was one. He must have missed that Sunday School lesson or else Falwell poisoned his mind that he (Bush) is not accountable to anyone.

Bush is accountable to all the people who live in the US and its territories and possessions world-wide. Let the people rise up and depose this charlatan and let him go and live in exile to lick his wounds.

He said on his re-election, that he'd spend his political capital. Well, he squandered his legacy.

This wooden-headedness reminds me of Reagan and acid rain.
It seems to run through the GOP genes.
