I heard some cranky radio dude while in a cab from the airport going on and on about how Bush’s reaction to Gonzalez’ testimony was the surest proof yet that he was a man of principle who didn’t listen to the polls. Blah, blah, I thinks. Now, at last, I see the reaction:
President Bush said Monday that the Congressional testimony of Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales last week, roundly panned by members of both parties, had “increased my confidence in his ability to do the job.”
He’s totally around the bend.
