I had an uncle who was a postal official at the Polish post office in Gdansk.
He was one of the defenders of the Polish postal service and, after it capitulated, was shot by the Germans under the provisions of martial law. Suddenly he was no longer a member of the family, and we were no longer allowed to play with his children.
I think Bush has capitulated on affirmative action and government spending.
Apart from that, he's OK, I guess. About the same as Howard Dean.
