The fundamental answer is, "no."

I cannot believe we have a president so bereft of self-awareness as this.

"[Bush] said he saw his unpopularity as a natural result of his decision to pursue a strategy in which he believed. 'I made a decision to lead,' he said, 'One, it makes you unpopular; two, it makes people accuse you of unilateral arrogance, and that may be true. But the fundamental question is, is the world better off as a result of your leadership?'"
What is that, a rhetorical question? The answer goes without saying.
