Why Can't Bush Cut Rumsfeld Loose? Let Us Count the Reasons.

BuzzFlash attributes this to a number of things: Bush prefers incompetent loyalists over intelligent self-starters; Bush thinks that he is inspired by God, accountable only to himself, and that no one's else's opinion counts; Bush will never admit that he's made a mistake and chronically mistakes failure for success; Bush has no idea what to do without Rumsfeld, even if Rumsfeld is doing destructive things; Bush, a man who was never in combat, thinks that he knows better than the military leaders; Bush won't cut Rumsfeld loose at a time that they already have begun secret support of guerilla combat activities against the Iranian government; and, among other reasons, Bush is always afraid that if he fires an inept loyalist, the loyalist may become disgruntled and write a "tell all" book that will reveal the dirt on Bush's personal complicity and illegal behavior.
