Maybe We Need to Test Him on the Goat Book…

“Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we,” Bush said. “They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.”

Bushisms aside: This is beyond embarrassment. But as many have pointed out over the last 24 hours, for once he told the truth.

“……But the American people know this president speaks with clarity and conviction, …(spokesman Scott) McClellan said.

Clarity? You have got to be kidding. Mr. Bush couldn’t pass his own No-Child-Left-Behind exams.

“No one in Bush’s audience of military brass or Pentagon chiefs reacted.”

That’s because they were in shock.

Maybe you would agree with McClellan that this kind of gaffe is harmless. The problem is that most of us can't tell where his gaffes stop and where the misinformation and deceptions begin.

This is not the leadership we need.
