George Bush is finally coming to his senses and is now changing his mind on many ideas that he previously rejected. Perhaps it is the fact that nobody has ever cared for the war in Iraq, or that he has relatively no public approval of what he is doing, either way, change is in the air. From the article:
For President Bush, last week's decision was the latest of several reversals on issues on which he once refused to budge. Since Democrats captured Congress, Bush has fired Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, authorized direct talks with North Korea, sent more troops to Iraq, agreed to discuss the contours of a Palestinian state in Middle East peace negotiations, and even proposed a tax increase for millions of Americans — all ideas he rejected earlier.It previously seemed that his entire goal in life was to get into office and do what ever he pleased, because what he learned in school was that the president was always right. Of course, it's getting harder to convince the gullible public that there is a terrorist threat, I mean a bomb could look like anything. I cannot quote exactly, but in Fahrenheit 9/11 by Michael Moore, Bush says that a police state would be much easier to control. Is that where you would want to live?
