I think he meant he hopes that Bush won't be effective in continuing to 
ruin the economy, starting wars abroad, discriminating against 
minorities, misshandling funding and alieniating other countries.

In other words Mills isn't saying he doesn't want Bush to suddenly 
become a good president, but that he'll be ineffective at being a bad 
president.
