Rummy’s (President Bush’s nickname, not mine) resignation was perplexing. After mismanaging the war so badly; after the serious loss of military prestige our nation has endured; after proving his crtics right on every count…; after gutting all branches of our military but especially our Army; after all of the gross fund mismanagement and corruption evinced by many of our contractors;…after most of our allies pulled out; he quits (or President Bush asks him to quit) now? Why now? How incompetent does one have to be to lose their job in the Bush administration? I really thought the man was going to “stay the course.” -Jim C.
