Thread Name: BS: Popular Views of the Bush Administration
Subject: RE: BS: Popular Views of the Bush Administration
In the following transcript of recent remarks by George Bush addressing the National Endowment for Democracy Thursday, I am forced to concede that it is the most articulate defense of Bush's foreign policy in rear-view I have seen to date. It is a well balanced rationalization of what I have always seen as irrational. I still see it as irrational, but I am much impressed by his new speechwriter's ability to paint a picture. He is fluent enough to make you believe Dulce et decorum est. I am not sure whether this is deep betrayal of the language or simply artful use of it; perhaps some of each, even worse.
