W.'s Double Binds

Wed Jul 21, 2004 5:26 am

Interesting editorial from the horribly biased National Review....

"Sometimes a political figure becomes so hated that he can't do anything right in the eyes of his enemies. President Bush has achieved this rare and exalted status. His critics are so blinded by animus that the internal consistency of their attacks on him no longer matters. For them, Bush is the double-bind president.

If he stumbles over his words, he is an embarrassing idiot. If he manages to cut taxes or wage a war against Saddam Hussein with bipartisan support, he is a manipulative genius.

If he hasn't been able to capture Osama bin Laden, he is endangering U.S. security. If he catches bin Laden, it is only a ploy to influence the elections."


"If he loses in November, the voice of the American people has spoken a devastating verdict on his presidency. If he wins, he stole the election."

Bingo, but it was the same for clinton. There were two ships sailing in unfriendly waters, its just that Bush is on the other one now.
