Don't blame me - You voted for me

From today's Washington Post:

"President Bush said the public's decision to reelect him was a ratification of his approach toward Iraq and that there was no reason to hold any administration officials accountable for mistakes or misjudgments in prewar planning or managing the violent aftermath. "

Is this a joke? How does winning the election absolve the President of blame for things that go wrong in Iraq, especially the ongoing "violent aftermath."

He was elected President, not God, and this was not a referendum on infallability. He is accountable every single day, for every single action, as long as he is in that job.

If he can't understand that...don't you see why he is so hated by half the country?
