"Bush: Rumsfeld Doing a ˜Heckuva Job’"

In an interview today with Fox News’ Brit Hume, President Bush offered praise for Donald Rumsfeld that’s usually reserved for utterly incompetent disaster management officials:

HUME: Is he here to stay as far as you are concerned?

BUSH: Yes. End of my term is a long time, but I tell you, he is doing a heckuva good job. I have no intention of changing him.

Bush was trying to brush aside speculation that Rumsfeld was on his way out. Of course, the last official Bush praised for doing a “heckuva job” was gone a week later.
