Bush and staying the course-

I am constantly perplexed by the fact that so many Bush supporters cite Bush's unwavering attitude on Iraq and terrorism as one of the things they like about him. Staying the course is only a good idea if you are on the right course to begin with. And changing course when you get blown off course is a very good idea. I don't understand what is admirable about a leader who refuses to acknowledge mistakes, refuses to change their mind when facts and situations change, and seems to live in a fantasy world. The man said our strategy in Iraq is working on the same day his own intelligence services stated that the best we could hope for is "tenuous stability" and at worst, all out civil war. This is our working strategy?
