Right Intention: Bush Critics

Bush Critics

Great quote from Gerard Baker on the cynicism of Bush critics with respect to the SOTU speech:

The visual field of the smart-thinking classes is now so seeped in red whenever the American President speaks that there is not the least possibility any longer that they will faithfully report what he has said. They simply use it as another opportunity to promote their own caricature of him.

If he had announced on Wednesday that he was replacing Donald Rumsfeld with Michael Moore, converting to Islam and seeking permission for the US to join the European Union, the headshaking verdict from the European cognoscenti and the American elite would have been the same: bad, dangerous, foolish man on a religious mission to destroy the world.


This is why I have a hard time taking Bush's critics seriously. Just like I couldn't take Republicans seriously when they went off the deep end with Clinton.
