He's no Truman

Can all the king's horses and all the king's men put Humpty Dumpty together again? President Bush has only one choice to save his legacy -- be a patriot and do the bidding of the American people.

No man, nor any president, is bigger than the people. If he bucks the will of the people, he will go down in history as the biggest disaster in American presidential history. If he fails to reassess the Israeli-based foreign policy which has, no doubt, dictated our foreign policy in the Middle East, the Bush dynasty, started by the father, will go down in flames -- a great American tragedy -- a true-to-life "Citizen Kane."

America demonstratively voted for change, but in my humble opinion, what the people want, more so, is progress and not change for the sake of change. Progress, in this instance, screams out retreat from Iraq. President Bush is no Truman, nor a Lincoln, no matter what he purports to have us believe.
