Time columnist Joe Klein has written a scathing critique of President Bush in the magazine's latest issue.

In a op-ed entitled "An Administration's Epic Collapse," Klein writes, "The three big Bush stories of 2007 -- the decision to 'surge' in Iraq, the scandalous treatment of wounded veterans at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the firing of eight U.S. Attorneys for tawdry political reasons -- precisely illuminate the three qualities that make this Administration one of the worst in American history."

Thanks, S-Q.

I feel a bit like Eliza Doolittle in "My Fair Lady"!

"I think she's got it, she's got it, she's got it!"

I'm a bit like the tortoise in the story of the tortoise and the hare.

I'm a slow learner, but I get to the finishing point (and further) eventually!

Joe Klein knows his stuff. His phrase, "adolescent petulance" pretty much says it all. Bush is a smug rich kid whose daddy bailed him out at every turn, a party boy who saw no reason to be more, was chosen by the Repubs who cleaned him up to use his father's name recognition.

They didn't care about a message; only winning the spoils. They fixed voter rolls, gerrymandered districts, appointed those willing to sell their soul to feel important.

But when you lie, cheat and steal, the majority of those who turned the other way because they so desperately wanted it to work, have to eventually notice they were sold a bunch of hoo hah.

Bush has become the poster boy for incompetence. Except I doubt the neocons care. No matter how badly it all turns out, their friends have been taken care of. The money has already been siphoned off.
