It didn’t take much to earn President Bush’s “complete confidence” today…

Bush: “I’m sending Ambassador Bolton to New York with my complete confidence.” [Appointment of Bolton, 8/1/05]

Bush: “Karl has got my complete confidence. He’s a valuable member of my team.” [Knight Ridder, 8/1/05]

Bush should feel free to abuse his power as he wishes, but he should also expect that for each of his actions, there will be a continuing equal and opposite reaction from the American public.
