    I just think Bush really has ever realized how to take responsibility.  I think he honestly may just not know what that means.  He has never had to do it, and his family has always managed (or friends of his family have always managed) to pick up the pieces and protect him from the consequences of his actions.  

    I wonder where he gets this sense of entitlement.  His father was a serious pilot during WWII, and had his sense of duty at least, and even though he wasn't the worst president of the century, he was not a disaster like his son.  I can't imagine but he is horrified at the mess his son has made.  But he enabled it and I wonder as well if Bush the father feels at least somewhat responsible for the disaster that Bush the son has been his whole life through.  Speaking of generational attitudes, I am also curious about the daughters of George and Laura (who also doesn't seem like a stellar person at taking responsibility for her own actions).  Have they developed any sense of true responsibility?  Have they grown up at all since their rather scary performance at the 2004 convention?

    •  Yes, Bush 41 actually put it all on the line (3+ / 0-)
