Bad CEO

Kevin Drum puts it so well in The Washington Monthly:

"Bush styles himself a 'CEO president,' but the world is full to bursting with CEOs who have goals they would dearly love to attain but who lack either the skill or the fortitude to make them happen. They assign tasks to subordinates without making sure the subordinates are capable of doing them but then consider the job done anyway because they've 'delegated' it. They insist they want a realistic plan, but they're unwilling to do the hard work of creating one all those market research reports are just a bunch of ivory tower nonsense anyway."

Has our incurious Texan actually read the Taguba report YET?
