"Beck: Bush has Abraham Lincoln-like honesty."
“The thing is,” Beck says, “he’s not the guy you see on TV. I talked to (CNN’s) Wolf Blitzer, and he said the exact same thing. It’s amazing.”
“He is clear and focused, and there are no hems and haws. I would not want to sit across the table from him as an enemy. He said a few things that were breathtaking, and my immediate response was, ‘Why are you not saying this?’ and he explained. I can’t quote him. All I can say is that he has Abraham Lincoln-honorable reasons … he has chosen not to say certain things. But (the Iraq war) is going much better than people think.”
In contrast to Beck’s belief that Bush is in total control behind the scenes, Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) said that a recent meeting with the President left him “very underwhelmed.”
