i’ve often found myself wondering if W was really as obtuse as he seemed publicly.

i have to give walt harrington a considerable amount of credit for providing a far more nuanced perspective on the bush presidency and bush the man than i expected. this made me go, “huh”, a lot more than i really expected.

i don’t know that a lot has changed in terms of my personal opinion of the bush2 presidency but the growth that a person can experience and how it appears to others was a decided perk from reading the article.
