Rule Number One

When the primary topic of every interview about your presidency is whether it was a failure, then it was a failure!

When your wife goes on the most GOP friendly network, and is forced to disagree with critics calling your presidency the worst in history, then it was the worst in history!

When your "work wife" goes on CBS and tries to label as “ridiculous” those who question your presidency, while having to resort to lines like this:
"I think generations pretty soon are going to start to thank this president for what he's done. This generation will," (Condoleezza) Rice said.
. . . and this:
"One cannot yet judge the effects of decisions that this president has taken on what the Middle East will become," Rice said. "I mean, for goodness' sakes, good historians are still writing books about George Washington,"
. . . then it is your presidency that was ridiculous!

And by the way, is Condi aware of the extensive list of books that “good historians” are still writing about Jack the Ripper? A quick tally of the titles available on reaches over a hundred. Perhaps another couple hundred volumes and, for goodness’ sakes, generations succeeding the denizens of 19th Century London will start to thank Jack for what he did too!
