The Bush delusions

I'm reading the transcrip of President Bush's press conference with Tony Blair this morning. If you held out any hope that the President might be removing himself from the fog of delusion that's surrounded him since, well, forever, you can put those to rest. Here's a portion of his response to the question, "Are you capable of admitting your failures in the past?":

You want frankness: I thought we would succeed quicker than we did. And I am disappointed by the pace of success.

Not, "We are losing in Iraq." Not, "We are not winning." No, we are succeeding, but just not fast enough.

He's become a parody of himself at this point.
