Why Bush Can't Face Reality In Iraq

Bush believes that his Presidency is ordained by God. He believes he is carrying out God's will. As such he is unable to accept anything remotely resembling the reality of his failure. This is why President Bush continually refers to the war in Iraq as a long term struggle. He believes that God acts in mysterious ways and therefore everything will turn out OK in the end. He repeatedly says this.

Take a moment to view this video of an exchange between President Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Bush is acting on faith. He believes his vision is God's vision and because of that he believes he will eventually have success in Iraq.

The man is unable to accept reality because it undermines his entire self image. If his policies are ordained by God, how then can they fail? For him to accept reality is tantamount to him accepting that he is not God's man on earth. That he is in fact failing because God is against him.

A faith based Presidency can only see things two ways. Either you are succeeding according to God's will, or you are failing because you are not with God. Bush cannot accept the fact that he is failing.

Bush believes myth is reality. Anyone who feels that way will have an unrealistic view of life.
