Many US Presidential administrations have experienced a decline in influence in their final year. Thus the term,lame duck came into being.
Even twice elected Presidents have had to face some dimunition in their prestige and power. But Presidential scholars cannot recall the kind of total collapse that they have witnessed in the double chosen and now completely abandoned Presidency of worst president ever George W Bush.
As Reagan admin advisor Ed Rollins explained: "This is not a lame duck administration, this is a dead duck President!"
In solidarity with the fallen fowl, ducks from across US media culture waded in on the Rollins' declaration.
Donald trumped Rollins by telling Bush: "You're fired!"
Daffy directed a wet bronx cheer at the failed commander.
