Okay. Let’s try and sort this out. First Bush says he’s the decider. Now he tells us he’s the decision maker. So which is it? Decider or decision maker?
If Bush is the decision maker, who’s the decider now?
Is Bush deciding things or making decisions? What if he’s brought a problem that requires a decider, but he’s the decision maker? Does he pass it on to Cheney?
The implications are far reaching. Does he need to get Congressional approval to hire a decider? What would that person’s title be? Decider to the President? Chief Decider?
Who will make the decision whether the White House needs to call in the decider? Will it be case by case or are there going to be strict criteria?
Can the White House out source deciding? Will Americans tolerate a foreign decider?
I call on Bush to clarify these duties and make a firm commitment to being either a decider or a decision maker. The country deserves to know.
