Resolve and determination terminate where laziness and indifference begin. Our President:
On Tuesday, White House spokesman Tony Snow said President Bush learned of the killings only after a reporter from Time magazine asked questions. Time published an article in March that said the Pentagon was investigating the incident.
Asked when Bush was first briefed about the events in Haditha, an insurgent stronghold in western Iraq, Snow replied Tuesday: "When a Time reporter first made the call."
How can you govern when you are completely isolated from the world? The President of the United States is supposed to be the leader of the free world. This President leads nothing because he's always the last to know.
Bush was out of the loop on Abu Ghraib. Out of the loop on Katrina. Out of the loop on Haditha. It's time to abandon the notion that Bush is resolved to a certain style of management and accept that he is indifferent to the failures of his administration and too lazy to lead.
