Thought - It's not working

George Bush's press conference today, and the broader legacy effort overall, don't really seem to be helping his case as the defenses just remind everyone of all the mistakes he's made along the way.

Specific case defenses, Katrina, Iraq decisions, economic issues, are just serving to produce counter arguments and recalling facts (which are not George Bush's friend.)

They may have done better to appeal to the "pink haze," emphasizing character and personality which the media seems to eat up.

(PS. We're a week from the inauguration and I still haven't seen any real Bush presidency "retrospectives" in the media.)

Also, He just won't go away, scheduling a primetime speech on Thursday.


  • Because he remains disconnected from reality on many levels, and because he has no sense of responsibility and accountability, Bush is an extremely poor spokesman for his own defense.

    Nothing is of his doing... things merely happen to him.

    He has no misgivings for his own actions, only disappointments in the actions of others.

    He's a prickly ass when challenged.

  • Very true. A lack of self consciousness does not suit the subtlety of the task.
