Bush in Perspective

Bloomberg News does a good job of looking at Bush's leadership style and the events that have shaped the last 5 years. It is a good summary/wrap up.

Bush Trust in Cheney, Rove Tested as Public Confidence Declines

This is an interesting piece after Bush has had to walk back the comments by Cheney, Hastert and Rumsfeld that went on the attack against Democrat John Murtha after he called for an Iraq withdrawal. Seeing that the attacks were not sitting well with the American people, I think the White House's campaign mode attack on critics is going to have to be reorganized. The attacks by Cheney and crew will do nothing to garner more support for the war. It will only go to further draw partisan lines.

I have said it before, and I will say it again - the only winning strategy Bush has is to shake up leadership. Otherwise he will continue to slide if he continues to attack. Leaving the leadership the same gives no confidence to the American people and continues to give Democrats easy targets.
