I've Been Thinkng:
That press conference at the White House yesterday with Abbas and Bush was, well, funny.
I have watched President George W. Bush mispronounce "contiguous" about 20 times over the years.
I wonder if he knows how to pronounce disingenuous?
That's really what made the press conference funny. The public display of mutual respect and affection, when truly, neither leader believes nor trusts the other.
Bush needs to give Abbas support because Abbas has mouthed the words of democracy.
We witnessed a display of disingenuous obfuscation.
