Joe Klein Writes Bush is Unfit to Lead

Last month’s conventional wisdom: it was a bunch of left wing extremists who were screaming that George Bush is unfit to lead the country.

This month’s conventional wisdom:  George Bush is unfit to lead the country.

The conventional wisdom, of course, is whatever Joe Klein says it is. Editor and Publisher reports on tomorrow’s column in Time by Joe Klein:

In the upcoming issue of Time magazine, out Friday, columnist Joe Klein considers what he calls the Bush administration’s “epic collapse.” He concludes with a statement that may make some wonder if he is hinting that the president ought to be impeached.

Klein claims, in referring to the president, that he has “tried to be respectful of the man and the office” but now he recognizes that the “defining sins” of his administration “are congenital: they’re part of his personality. They’re not likely to change. And it is increasingly difficult to imagine yet another two years of slow bleed with a leader so clearly unfit to lead.”

Earlier in the column, Klein hits Bush’s “adolescent petulance” and “indifference to reality in Iraq” and charges that his “hyper-partisanship” amounts to “a travesty of governance.” He declares that the three major Bush problems of the year “precisely illuminate the three qualities that make this Administration one of the worst in American history: arrogance (the surge), incompetence (Walter Reed) and cynicism (the U.S. Attorneys).”

It might have taken a while, but Joe, welcome to the non-extremist left, where we realized a long time ago that George Bush is not fit to be President.
