Trying Too Hard
Inside the sad, earnest effort to convince the world that George W. Bush was a great President. I doubt that running around telling people that Bush was great will do it. Carter revampted his image by going around and doing good things - building houses and ushering in democratic elections. There's no Peanut Foundation out there trying to convince people that the Iran hostage crisis was really a triumph. If and when the economy recovers and the US is exstracted from Iraq, that won't reflect well on Bush, it will reflect well on Bush's seccesor (What was his name again?) for cleaning up his mess. It will not make the mess-maker look better. An arsonist doesn't get the reflected glory from the firefighter.
