Get a clue.
GWB is so bad that it's good, sometimes.
In today's press conference he said alot of things...backing down from the claim about Iran and IEDs (but still planning and executing a secret war), joking with reporters (calling David Gregory "Gregory").
Remember, GW's in Iraq for the oil, oil, oil, stupid, stupid, stupid. That means that, yes, there will be permanent military bases in Iraq, and yes, there will be commercialization of Iraqi national oil fields...which, btw, are making progress on both fronts, so GW must be pretty happy. Who gives a rat's as$ about poll ratings....as he said today...."I'm not running."
But the best is when he slips up and actually tells the truth, as painful as that may be:
RS [L]et's put it this way, money trumps peace, sometimes. In other words, commercial interests are very powerful interests throughout the world . . And, therefore, I'm working with people to make sure that that concern trumps whatever commercial interests may be preventing governments from acting. I make no specific accusation with that statement. It's a broad statement. But it's an accurate assessment of what sometimes can halt multilateral diplomacy from working. [emphasis added]
