That it was his last speech as President was its only saving grace. A man characterized by a chronic lack of leadership talent throughout his entire life, a man who showed a relentless inability to act until his handlers told him what to do dared speak to us of trust, decisiveness, toughness. We know the truth of that. We saw it on that awful day which Mister Bush conjured up once again in his Thursday night goodbye. If we hadn’t known we were in trouble previously, we learned it watching him with The Pet Goat in his hands, doing nothing, waiting, as always, for someone to rescue him.
