Always unprepared, always unready

Right to the point

In short, our country is being run by people who assume that things will turn out the way they want. And if someone warns of problems, they shoot the messenger.
Some commentators speak of the series of disasters now afflicting the Bush administration — there seems to be a new one every week — as if it were just a string of bad luck. But it isn't.
If good luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity, bad luck is what happens when lack of preparation meets a challenge. And our leaders, who think they can govern through a mix of wishful thinking and intimidation, are never, ever prepared.
