From Today’s Papers:
The WSJ reports that yesterday, without realizing that his remarks were being broadcast on a feed to some White House reporters, President Bush told the heads of some Catholic charities that his faith-based social services initiative was linked to his goal of curtailing abortions, a connection he did not make when he announced the initiative earlier this week. During the same meeting, reporters were also able to hear Bush say that his plans for federal funding for school vouchers may not succeed because a lot of Republicans don’t like them. Online, the NYT carries an AP dispatch about the same meeting, which plays the voucher comment and Bush’s joke that he’s about to name his brother Jeb ambassador to Chad above the abortion comment.
Make of it what you will.
