George Bush is NOT incompetent.
Advertisements [?]
Incompetence is when you try to accomplish something and keep screwing it up. By this measure, Bush and Cheney are supremely competent. They have accomplished just about everything they've set out to do:

1. A war in which the goals were control of oil, U.S. bases in the region and preventing Iraq from switching from the dollar to the Euro.

2. Immense tax cuts for the wealthy.

3. Contracts that enrich them personally via Halliburton and the Carlyle Group.

4. Cronyism raised to an art form.

5. Control of elections to ensure a Republican majority in congress (and probably a Republican president for the foreseeable future).

6. Katrina can't be counted as a failure if you don't give a damn about the people involved.

7. Getting Osama Bin Laden isn't a failure. They need him to keep selling fear.

8. A supreme court stacked in favor of the Republicans.

9. Virtually total media control.

10. Unregulated capitalism.

11.Turning congressional democrats into doormats.

12. And now they are on the thresh hold of becoming absolute dictators.

There's much more, but you get the idea. Incompetence? Any president in our history would have been overjoyed to attain their own goals as successfully as these gangsters have achieved theirs.
