Dave Johnson: If Iran is Really a Threat, Bush Should Step Down

Dave Johnson at Seeing the Forest checks in with an outstanding piece on what the Bush administration is now pushing as the looming threat from Iran.

Writes Dave: "Iran may well be a threat. This may well be a serious crisis. But we have a problem: a President with no credibility."

He then goes on to invoke the memory of Lyndon B. Johnson and to draw parallels between Johnson's decision to forego any reelection attempt due to his own loss of credibility on the Vietnam war and what George W. Bush should now do if he truly is a patriot as he claims.

Insightful writing and very good reading are here.
