New Republic;5/8/2006, Vol. 234 Issue 17, p7
The editorial criticizes the United States President George W. Bush administration. Public opinion polls of the president are at an extreme low, and a series of blunders, including political corruption, intelligence failures, and the mishandling of Hurricane Katrina, have led many to give up on the Bush administration. The authors discuss reasons for being pessimistic about Bush's lame duck years.
