The Honest Guy's Critique of George W. Bush

Or, "George Bush, Master of Failing Upwards."

Apparently, Ron Reagan's DNC speech on stem-cell research barely scratched the surface of his contempt for the current administration:

Does anyone really favor an administration that so shamelessly lies? One that so tenaciously clings to secrecy, not to protect the American people, but to protect itself? That so willfully misrepresents its true aims and so knowingly misleads the people from whom it derives its power? I simply cannot think so. And to come to the same conclusion does not make you guilty of swallowing some liberal critique of the Bush presidency, because that's not what this is. This is the critique of a person who thinks that lying at the top levels of his government is abhorrent. Call it the honest guy's critique of George W. Bush.

And that's not the half of it. I'm not sure if Reagan writes or ghostwrites his opinion, but it's biting either way. I'll paste the whole article in comments, below.
