I leave you this fine evening with an essay that explains why President Bush should not care about how popular he is. He was reelected to the presidency—to continue serving as our commander in chief—in November 2004, more than a year and a half after the war in Iraq began. By that act, the American people authorized him to prosecute the war to the best of his ability. He is doing just that. President Bush, and not his critics, bears the burden of failure. Why should he let them dictate his actions?
