From Atrios

It’s bad enough that the preznit leaves Washington for 5 weeks, but now we know that when Katrina hit there apparently wasn’t enough of any stature still in charge. When the president is away shouldn’t someone be manning the phones, just in case?

Has anyone seen Cheney yet?

WaPo has a telling quote from none less than William Kristol:

“Almost every Republican I have spoken with is disappointed” in Bush’s performance, said William Kristol, a conservative columnist with close White House ties. “He is a strong president . . . but he has never really focused on the importance of good execution. I think that is true in many parts of his presidency.”

What is “strength” if it doesn’t include execution? He’s a strong leader but he isn’t good at getting things done? Isn’t that a bit of an oxymoron, unless of course, if when you say “strong leader” you mean “bully”.
