Bush deep in denial

2 07 2007

WaPo’s evocative headline says a lot: President Besieged and Isolated, Yet at Ease.

Seems that Bush has been secretly seeking advice vindication from all sorts of people. Perhaps his colossal failures are starting to eat at his conscience. But if you thought that he was inwardly agonising, you’d be wrong:

Bush has virtually given up on winning converts while in office and instead is counting on vindication after he is dead. “He almost has . . . a sense of fatalism,” said Rep. Peter T. King (R-N.Y.), who recently spent a day traveling with Bush. “All he can do is do his best, and 100 years from now people will decide if he was right or wrong. It doesn’t seem to be a false, macho pride or living in your own world. I find him to be amazingly calm.”

That sounds to me like the calm before the storm. Is he going to crack?
