Thoughts on Calls for Secretary Rumsfeld to Resign

There's an old saying in management that comes to mind about the futility of trying to make chicken salad out of chicken shit...
I am not a fan of Mr. Rumsfeld. My first post on here was to comment on his response regarding the lack of armor on convoy vehicles. Having said that, we're not in Iraq because of Donald Rumsfeld. We're in Iraq because of President George W. Bush who was just reelected last month to four more years in office... and Donald Rumsfeld is the only remaining senior member of this Administration with any military experience whatsoever. I'll grant you that he was a pilot by training and that he served in peacetime, but he did serve... his entire term of obligated service... and in D.C. these days that is saying quite a bit.
That the war in Iraq is a trainwreck is due to the President's decision to fight it. That Mr. Rumsfeld might not be perfectly informed or might misspeak on occasion... well... hello?
