Bush’s image projection

The lengths to which these people will go is astounding. It’s not that every President sought out this kind of image projection, but that this one has made such a consistent and almost absurd effort over his tenure to accomplish this. His administration has been much more secretive about party platform with GOP delegates, and he pulls off stunts like that described in the reference blog entry with monotonic regularity.

Now, if he would just put as much energy into thinking about what is the right thing to do, he might just come up with a thing or two. But Karl Rove would probably shut him down.
