Bush's weakness on full display

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

So the right wingers are puffing up their chests and their President is looking like a real wimp:

Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers' sudden withdrawal underscores the strength of the social conservatives who form President Bush's political base and the weakness of a president buffeted by one political misfortune after another.
Like father, like son. And the week isn't over yet:
...the White House is worried about the possibility of indictments Friday in a special prosecutor's investigation into whether top officials leaked the name of CIA operative Valerie Plame as part of an effort to discredit her husband and his outspoken criticism of the Iraq war.

Adding to the distractions confronting the Bush presidency: rising fuel prices, soaring deficit spending and increasing public opposition to the Iraq war, which on Tuesday tallied the 2,000th American military death.
