Strong opinions, weakly held

My problem with George W Bush in a nutshell

Dan Froomkin explains why I don’t put any stock in any of the mea culpas issued by President Bush lately:

Bush has never said: I made a wrong decision in this case, here’s why, and here’s what I learned from it, which is why you can have greater faith in me this time.

By the way, if you’re not reading his White House Briefing on a daily basis, you’re missing out on something essential.


  1. When you have divine guidance, you’re never really wrong.

  2. All the discusssions are meaningless.. If they hit us again this will be a different country. I think the first to go will be those appoligists on both sides. Smart people wrote the Constitution others can change it. Jefferson said we should allow for a reveloution every twenty years or so. Looks like we are over do.

  3. @Rafe — where does one find such briefings?

    @Walter — what “they” are you worried will be hitting us again? the Saudis, like last time? what does that have to do with anything that Bush has done since (other than, say, letting the Saudi royal family fly out on 9/11)…?

  4. The link is to the briefing for yesterday. He writes one pretty much every day.

  5. acm, this works as a link to the latest Froomkin, whatever day it is: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/politics/administration/whbriefing/
