Just caught Bush responding to a question by the incomparable Helen Thomas about why he reallllly wanted to go to war in Iraq. He objected to the premise of her question, saying no president wants to go to war. He then dug up the old gems we love so much about how 9/11 changed foreign policy. How innocent lives can be targeted, etc.
Yet none of that really connects to Iraq, does it?
He can be as defensive as he wants - but I've heard no answer yet and he sounds as foolish and ignorant - no, it's stupid right, if the ignorance continues in the face of evidence to the contrary or that educates one out of ignorance - over here in Europe as he does at home.
