What Do You Want For Nuthin?

Not that it makes it any more palatable suffering through this train-wreck-in-progress known as the Bush administration, but on the question of failed leadership I must ask: What did we expect from the boy king? Really. What should we have expected? One might argue that we have a right to expect that the person who takes the oath of office follow the oath but really all we had to do was look at the man's history. Not that we should have expected torture one might say. Maybe. But more than anything, particularly after September 11, 2001 we needed, the world needed, leadership and that is a commodity never demonstrated by the boy-king. It is a sad but true fact that Bush was never anything more than a made for tv movie. Saccharin for the masses. Leadership would have been nice, but he is who he always was and always will be.
