President Bush had a news conference today. Hasn't anyone told that guy he is cooked? The man really needs to change his vocabulary. Radicals and extremists, embolden al-Qaida, Iraq is a young democracy, as commander and chief I have an obligation, we continue to support the military, we can't afford to fail, that's an interesting question, it's been hard work; the man makes me nauseous. His arrogance is self-destructive.
If we learn anything from his presidency, one qualification we should look for in our leadership is the person's ability to flipflop. The ability to make corrections midcourse. Admit a mistake, take your licken, cut your losses and move on. It is a sign of maturity, not a sign of weakness. Ask anyone who has ever been successful at anything, they have made a lot of mistakes and learned from them.
