In a new post, Cole tackles Bush's high-profile speech last week. John over at Irish Eagle considers it a success, and that "the eyes are now back on the prize". Reading Cole's rebuttal, though, gives a whole different perspective, showing up the impossibility of taking any part of Bush's speech seriously. Too many commentators still have faith in an Emperor with no clothes.
How many times can Bush peddle falsehoods about al Qaeda and be given a free pass on it by otherwise smart, intelligent people? Why do clearly decent people still have confidence in a political leader who is either an ignorant fool or a compulsive liar?
