Inept, inane, bland society snob, connected to Washington initially through his Papa, Herbert Prescott Bush, a United States Senator. Good ole boy system shuffled around inside the D.C. beltway until sent to China as an ambassador. Returned to the States for a year or so as director of the CIA.
Inadvertently (????) planted idea and method of corrupting intelligence data to achieve the ill-conceived military objectives in the mind of Baby Bush and brought to fruition by Cheney and Rummy.
2. Political lightweight and gadfly capable of holding governmental jobs for a couple years, only by virtue of status as Senator's son and Ivy League education. A person with more political connections than skill and savvy.
3. Also a figurehead with an important title with little responsibility and purposely insulated from day to day responsibilities to minimize the risk of his interfering with the operation.
2. He is a Papa Bush. He has passed through more governmental jobs than a jug of moonshine makes rounds at Kentucky barn dance.
3. "Direct the junk mail to Papa Bush. He can peruse the catalogs and solicitations while we put this mega deal to bed."
