This is rich

"Bush Says Iraq Fumbled Executions." What is he, the last guy to weigh in? Why does it take him so long? Mr. Decisive seems to have waited quite a while for the wind to blow on Saddam's hanging before he dared go this far.

Oh, and there's this:
Mr. Bush also said that if he were questioned by a pollster, he would voice disapproval of the situation in Iraq.

“If you were to take it and put me in an opinion poll and said ‘Do I approve of Iraq’ I’d be one of those that said, ‘No, I don’t approve of what’s taking place in Iraq,”’ Mr. Bush said in the interview.

“On the other hand I do believe we can succeed,” he said.
WTF is going on with this guy? Can you say, having it both ways? Can you say, desperate effort to show he's not out of touch, that he understands what public opinion is? Fine, but what difference does it make at this point? I mean, really? Say something interesting that shows you have some kind of insight here. It's not like you're the President or anything. Otherwise, why bother?
