The customer ain't always right!
The Americans are spreading democracy throughout the Middle East, based on the theory that the customer (voter) is always right. But the President doesn't like their choices. Hamas wins power in Palestine, the Shiites win power in Iraq, the mullas win elections in Iran. Throughout the Middle East the voters are turning to extremists, and the US can't accept that the voter is always right. On those grounds there'd be a lot of people in Louisiana and Mississippi who agree, about the US voters who chose Bush.
