Oh, Darn, Mr. President, I’m Washing My Hair The Next Two Years


(Reuters) White House seeks war “czar” for Iraq

“In a tradition of presidential trouble-shooting, the White House is considering creating a “war czar” post in the National Security Council and has put out feelers to some retired generals to see if they would be interested.
“But no takers so far. The Washington Post said at least three retired four-star generals approached by the White House in recent weeks had turned down the position.
“Retired Marine Gen. John “Jack” Sheehan, a former top NATO commander who rejected the White House overture, told the Post: ‘The very fundamental issue is, they don’t know where the hell they’re going.'”

After all, the Drug Czar did so well…Ummmm, isn’t Bush a vaunted War President? Is our beloved Commander-in-Chief trying to pass the buck…again, like he’s done all his life? Don’t worry, some idiot will take the job–it’ll need an idiot to devote himself to cleaning up Bush’s “accident” just so he can be blamed when it fails again.
