I beg to differ with the opinion-page column "Bush Is Hardly on the Ropes," Dec. 10.I agree that a president can act, he can propose, he can initiate. But George Bush is clearly out of his element now, and his clumsy efforts to do any of the aforementioned actions have backfired. To date, his only real "accomplishment" has been to veto ad infinitum, and that is a rather negative way to govern. President Bush is perceived now by more and more people in the nation as indecisive, unsure of himself, and more importantly, out of touch with reality. Nick Cherniavsky, Monterey, Calif.
