Pressed on why he thought this strategy would succeed where previous efforts had failed, Mr. Bush shot back: “Because it has to.”
They search for the best way to describe a President who engages in military policy opposed by his Joint Chiefs and contradicted by his own brand-new counterinsurgency policy, who doesn't seem to understand the difference between goals and strategy, recycles last year's "Plan for Victory" with more troops, and is apparently hell-bent on starting a war with Iran ... a man incapable of calculating risk versus reward, or even understanding that hope is not a plan ...
The geeks have it cold. The rest of you just won't get it, but --
