Weary Bush has no early release:
Uninspired appointments are the symptom of a President who has simply run out of energy.
President Bush is tired. It was part of his original appeal that he is such a normal American, not an obsessive over-worker, willing enough to do his job and just as willing to go on vacation whenever possible, and notably more often than his recent predecessors. But too many things have happened to him of late, from unending war and inordinately destructive hurricanes that ravaged some of America's least civilized places, to the nasty little press leak scandal that has caused the indictment of Mr Lewis "Scooter" Libby, and the humiliating withdrawal of his candidate for the Supreme Court.
