Decision of committee by one

The New York Times has a good article in today’s paper, the entirety of which can be found here, in regard to the decision made by Bush on whether he should send more troops and how many.

Although the article makes it seem like much thought and process was gone into the decision, it still seems that regardless of what people advised, Bush went his own way. Where the Generals maintained that they didn’t need anymore troops without political and economic change and the Vice President and Senator McCain clamoring for more troops, Bush picked a number seemingly out of thin air.

This “my way or the highway” leadership has continued from a guy who financially ruined the Texas Rangers through a similar management style. Little did we know that it was a harbinger of things to come.

    I’m not surprised. When you have an individual who honestly believes that god speaks to him directly and only he is in a position to save the free world from tyranny and to spread liberty among god’s people, when you have someone that messianic, and that filled with faith, and that delusional and irrational, this is what you end up with…..

    I want the next President to be smarter than the average American. I want him/her to be rational, thoughtful, and articulate. That shouldn’t be too much to ask.
