George W. Bush 
The Man the NeoCons Inflicted on America

The question under discussion here is badly picked.  The issue should be why Bush W., a man of highly questionable background and character would have been chosen by the NeoCons to lead them into a position from which they could continue the movement to fascism for America.  

John Fund's motives were clear. This was his job as a NeoCon Agent placed at respected outlets on TV, print and at the Wall Street Journal.  

But, yes, W was competent to occupy the White House. 

Scarborough: Is Bush An Idiot?

Well, if not an idiot something close to it.
