Born at the Crest of the Empire: Mike has a good point too
Born at the Crest of the Empire: "After sleeping on it, and re-reading the speech this morning, just a quick thought on the coverage of last night's presidential speech.
How low has the bar been set for this president that he gets wide ranging praise for simply admitting that his Iraq war hasn't gone perfectly? He gets credit for admitting that his WMD intel was bad when every reporter and independent analyst had come to that conclusion years ago?
Isn't the fact that he's not admitted this for the two years since his 'mission accomplished speech' really what we should be talking about? Have we gone so far that the President barely admitting part of the truth is worthy of praise?"
