War Czar

How many Republicans does it take to screw up Iraq policy?

National Security advisor (and staff). Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (and staff). Secretary of State (and staff). Secretary of Homeland Security (and staff). And now...
War Czar (and staff).

The man we have been repeatedly told is resolute, decisive, so sure of himself. The man who prides himself on being "The Decider." The man who has bragged of being Commander in Chief. The man who recently was scolding Congresss (a.k.a. Democrats) for wanting to effect policy for Gulf War II rather than leaving it to "the Generals." Now, President George W. Bush needs Lt. Gen. Douglas Lute as a "war czar."

From Washington to Clinton, from 1789 through 2006, we had a "war czar." He was called President.

At this point, maybe the less decisions Bush makes, the better. No one elected Douglas Lute to be Commander-in-Chief, though.

It pains me to think that none of this would have happened if Gore hadn't stolen all those votes from Nader in 2000.
