'...The hubris is unprecedenteed in US history. I repeat, Assad is no worse and he certainly should respond to bush hyprcacy by spitting in the face that lieswhen he hiumself is Prince of Lies.' Not exactly up to your usual standard. You seem to find our president acutely upsetting. Get over it. He's just a stubborn, limited, ignorant man in the wrong place at the wrong time. On the bright side, he's spent all his political capital, and in fifteen months he'll be gone entirely. Not much chance he'll wind up on Mount Rushmore, so we can forget he ever happened and start picking up the pieces. What's more, he's pretty much single-handedly discredited Neo-Conservatism as an ideology for the future. Could be worse. Suppose we'd had an intelligent, SUCCESSFUL George Bush.
