New York, Jan.5 (ANI): U.S. President George W. Bush will largely be seen as a failed head of state, because he spent most of his eight years thinking about himself, rather than the nation, an article in the New York Times has said.
The last NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll on Bush's presidency found that 79 percent of Americans would not miss him after he leaves the White House.
"He is being forgotten already, even if he's not yet gone. You start to pity him until you remember how vast the wreckage is. It stretches from the Middle East to Wall Street to Main Street and even into the heavens, which have been a safe haven for toxins under his passive stewardship," says the paper.
"The discrepancy between the grandeur of the failure and the stature of the man is a puzzlement. We are still trying to compute it," the paper adds.
The paper further goes on to say that the one indisputable talent of his White House was its ability to create and sell propaganda both to the public and the press.
But it concludes that "now that bag of tricks is empty as well."
"The man who emerges is a narcissist with no self-awareness whatsoever. It's that arrogance that allowed him to tune out even the most calamitous of realities, freeing him to compound them without missing a step. The president who famously couldn't name a single mistake of his presidency at a press conference in 2004, still can't. (ANI)
