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.
