Is it really too much for Bush to learn all of his administration's talking points?
Today U.S. President George W. Bush said:
Ambassador Bremer sat right here yesterday and talked to me about the Iraqis' desire to be more involved in the governance of their country. And that's a positive development because it's -- actually, that's what we want.That's a "development"? I thought the Team Bush Line was that every man, woman, child and small animal wanted the U.S. of A. to give them Jebus' gift of freedom in the form of a government that does what the U.S. wants it to do. Bush even says as much later in the same transcript:
I am so pleased to be going to a country which says that people are allowed to express their mind. That's fantastic. Freedom is a beautiful thing. And the fact that people are willing to come out and express themselves says I'm going to a great country.He seems to have the fundamentals down. Now Bush should just raise his ambitions.
Tom Regan of The Christian Science Monitor has put together an interesting set of stories about Iraq from various news sources.
