New Column Up

My new column in today's Clarion-Ledger is now online. Here's a taste:

Two things become painfully clear.

First, this administration is wholly unwilling to change course—even when they're obviously driving off a cliff. Second, and much more threatening to the outcome in Iraq, the president seems incapable of realizing mistakes.

He's entirely blind to error. His is the ultimate "faith-based" government. All decisions made by the president must be prima facie correct because he's made them.

Any seeming trouble in the world is merely a matter of faulty PR, easily fixed by some better way of making the case.

Surely this explains Karen Hughes' appointment to the State Department, tasked with creating "rapid response" teams to counter bad news and defend Bush's policies to the world.

Cowards change policies. Real leaders change minds.

Give it a read.
