He manages to put into words what thinking individuals are thinking. I found this on the site of blogger Cab Drollery to whom goes the credit.

Bush is the only U.S. commander-in-chief to have initiated one war, only to have lost three. He never managed to catch bin Laden nor destroy al-Qaeda; he failed to defeat terrorism; he wasted the political capital awarded him by September 11th; and public opinion has come to detest him. The nation, once indulgent of his lies - lethal lies for over 3,000 of its own sons and daughters - no longer believes him. No U.S. President has ever harmed his country as much. ......George [H.W.] Bush took advantage of Saddam Hussein's erroneous invasion of Kuwait and his eldest son, more reactionary and conservative - and less intelligent -wasted a great opportunity and squandered the enormous political capital engendered by September 11th. The irrational brutality of this terrorist act, the fact that they struck New York - the most cosmopolitan of the world's cities - where, in reasonable harmony, all races, languages, nationalities and cultures of the world coexist; united by a universal repudiation of such violence, there came unspoken waves of solidarity and affection for the people of the United States. That spirit of goodwill, together with the economic, scientific and technological superiority of the United States, the influence of its culture, the force of its language and its capacity to promote and even impose its point of view, all gave the United States a unique opportunity to lead a genuine international coalition to confront terrorism. Bush and his team, in an obvious confusion of visions and paradigms, took the wrong path and opportunistically preferred to seek out circumstantial and petty advantage in connection with controlling Middle East oil - rather than embrace strategies that may have been more legitimate and would have garnered greater consensus. ...Without reason or debate, Bush manipulated the facts, lied shamelessly, and with his allies and acolytes got lost in the labyrinth he now finds himself in.
