General Eaton: 'Fire Rumsfeld'

Josh Marshall points to yesterday's op-ed piece by Maj. Gen. Paul Eaton (Ret.). Just a year ago, General Eaton was being touted by the Pentagon as the 'Father of the Iraqi Army.' Today, Eaton is calling Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld "incompetent strategically, operationally and tactically." Worse, he says, "Donald Rumsfeld seems incapable of learning."

Meanwhile, George W. Bush isn't learning much, either. Think Progress reports:
After getting frustrated at the length of the Q&A session of his speech in Cleveland today, Bush blurted out, “Anybody work here in this town?”
Turns out "economic conditions in the city have worsened considerably during Bush’s presidency." So the answer is, "A lot of people in Cleveland don’t work because they can’t find jobs. "
