The Bush Team’s Execution

Years ago, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (NFL) were awful. When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ coach was once asked what he thought of his team’s execution, he replied, “It’s not a bad idea.”

In that spirit, I point you towards this quote pulled by David Corn from the Washington Post (italics mine):

The best (in a perverse way) quote of recent days came from William Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard and cheerleader-in-chief for the war in Iraq. He told The Washington Post, “Almost every Republican I have spoken with is disappointed” in Bush’s response to the disaster. “He is a strong president…but he has never really focused on the importance of good execution. I think that is true in many parts of his presidency.”

Um, the Presidency is called the Executive Branch for a reason. It’s all about the doing, the execution–hence, the whole Executive branch idea. Sometimes I think Bush wanted to win the campaign (really, really badly), but could care less about actually being President.
