George W. Bush his legacy fades every day

Bush staffers Tony Snow, Dana M. Perino, Dan Bartlett, Karl Rove and Nicolle Wallace, from left, last year. All but Perino have left the White House.


No one with any sense is feelin' George W. Bush anymore. (based on today's Washington Post report). It would be great if he and his Vice President would do the American people a favor and just resign.

Others called that an exaggeration. Either way, interviews with a dozen top aides who left in recent months reveal a profound sense of ambivalence about the ultimate outcome of their work beyond toppling Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

The WaPo report goes on to note, All the more so in a White House beset by an intractable war, a hostile Congress, a shipwrecked domestic agenda and near-historic-low approval ratings.
