A little bit of Bush White House backstage

Bob Woodward publishes an odd piece in the WaPo purporting to be advice for Obama, but the value is really all the little "backstage" revelations about the Bush presidency.

Bullet 1, the real division between Rumsfeld and then NSC chair Rice. Bullet 2, Cheney and his cadre were making jokes about Powell as they undercut him.... Later, Bush was both delusional and knowingly lying about the status of the Iraq war.

It's a pretty ugly picture behind the curtain.


  • Wow. Talk about harsh retrospectives. No soft focus on that one.

  • And, again, most of it, like the Rice Rumsfeld bit, are little bits that Woodward the "reporter" held back for books and such.
