The wrong way about it

Why do I feel the way I do? I watched Bush's State of the Union address last night and it's getting to the point I almost like the guy. Am I that gullible? It just seemed to me that he believes everything he is saying. He'd set so many lofty goals and noble promises. It will be interesting, though, to see how many he keeps, or is able to keep. Probably just being glib?

On one hand, some of his biggest critics are going too, too far. The Left can and should be better represented, and needs to be reined in, we can wait to rein in the Right.

On the other hand, Bush seems quite adept at manipulating the media, and in rather covert ways. Also, he seems to be in no hurry to leave the Middle East. While I don't think that the U.S. should leave Iraq until the situation there is reasonably stable, he still seems to rely on brute force to get his point across. Here is another person who may be a centrist, because we are increasingly in need of more of them.

Sudden Excitement
Should I thank Jean Carle for coming forward with what he believe is the truth? Of course, as long as it is the truth, the reasons don't matter. It may actually be interesting to watch if this isn't the apex of revelations. Could even bring down the Martin government and certainly tarnish Cretien's legacy. But a burning question is: who do we replace them with?
