Andrew Sullivan: Bush Has ‘Lost His Mind’
Posted on Nov 2, 2006
For Bush to say that Rumsfeld and Cheney have done a “fantastic” job “suggests this man has lost his mind…. I’m sorry. There’s no other way to say it.”—Andrew Sullivan in a joint interview with Chris Hitchens on CNN. Brilliant stuff. Watch it
Read a fuller explanation on Sullivan’s blog, below:
Let me put this kindly: anyone who believes that Donald Rumsfeld has done a “fantastic job” in Iraq is out of his mind. The fact that such a person is president of the United States is beyond disturbing. But then this is the man who told Michael Brown he was doing a “heckuva job.” And, yes, our Iraq policy begins to look uncannily like the Katrina response.
