W? Is That You?

Now where on earth did this bout of frankness come from? From FoxNews:
Asked about his missteps, Bush said his vernacular has been a major one.

"Saying, 'Bring it on'; kind of tough talk, you know, that sent the wrong signal to people. I learned some lessons about expressing myself maybe in a little more sophisticated manner, you know. 'Wanted, dead or alive'; that kind of talk. I think in certain parts of the world it was misinterpreted. And so I learned from that," he said.

He also said the biggest mistake of U.S. involvement in Iraq were the events at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, where photographs of prisoners being mistreated and humiliated by American prison guards were shown around the world.

"I think that probably in retrospect, though at the time it was very difficult to argue this, we could have done de-Baathification in a more differentiated way than we did," Blair said in reference to the wholesale removal from power of Saddam Hussein's party loyalists.
Interesting. One of my biggest problems with W is his stubborn refusal to admit error or to explain his postions. Could someone who realizes how bad that is have gotten his ear and talked some sense into him? Things that make you go hmmmm.

I thought the same thing el.

I'm not sure how much influence the Press Secretary has, but if it is Snow's influence they need to keep listening to him.

Bush is apologizing? Look, if they don't like "Bring it on!", then to hell with 'em.
Why should anybody have to bite the pillow to satisfy the uber-sensitive and the neo-socialists? Fuck them sideways.

One of my biggest problems with W is his stubborn refusal to admit error or to explain his postions.

Do you mean that he doesn't give the liberals the rope to hang him with? Bullshit! He's admitted his errors on HIS terms and not when the team killing fucktards on the left want him to. Furthermore, he explains his positions quite clearly. Those who choose to take a contrary position, no matter what he says, don't get it.

He explains his positions clearly. You're falling into the trap of the liberals if you think that he doesn't.
