He meant to do that

According to his cheerleaders, Bush's plans literally cannot fail.

Unfortunately, the Bush Administration often positions itself so that whatever happens supports its position. For example, with respect to the concern about another terrorist attack in America -- if there is no second attack, Bush gets to take credit for securing the "homeland." On the other hand, if there's another attack Bush can point to it as proof that we need to (a) continue the war in Iraq, or (b) continue to detain suspects indefinitely without charge, or (c) continue to evade the law on intelligence gathering.

I don't think that this is a particularly good way to run a country, and it sends my cynicism sky-high -- but I have to admire the politics of it.

It is amazing how they've teflon coated the whole thing. Of course, anyone who con formulate two consecutive coherent thoughts should be able to see through it... but ah, I guess that's part of the problem.
