Tale told by an idiot?
President George W. Bush met with prominent dissenters about the Iraq war today. We shall see if this transcends from mere gesture to actual policy; or if this was full of sound and fury yet signified nothing. One excerpt from the Reuters' account is of note for the level of detail.:
Lawrence Eagleburger, secretary of state for Bush's father, said when talking to the president there is a tendency to be restrained in expressing opposing views.Plus this is just plain hilarious. Something you'd expect from the Onion, yet in real life.
"There was some criticism, but it was basically 'you haven't talked to the American people enough,' and it was very mild," he said to reporters after the meeting. "We're all has-beens anyway," he said, smoking a cigarette in front of the television cameras on the White House driveway.
