And from Morris Berman's DARK AGES AMERICA, The Final Phase of Empire:
"Being a lightweight -- or a vacuous marionette, in George Jr.'s case -- was not a liability but actually an asset; that Bush Jr. was (is) a hollow mouthpiece for a self-destructive imperial project is an arrangement that makes that project all that much easier to fulfill. That 'he's a real nowhere man' is not an obstacle for a nation sliding into chaos while it is trying to convince itself that it is in charge of the world. Indeed, it's a perfect fit."
