It's the weekend, and because I noticed something odd on the news this morning I'm going to put my regular musings on storytelling aside for the day and talk about how, like Bush, Obama can't admit when he's wrong.
I remember a few years ago, when the Left in this country said President Bush couldn't admit to his mistakes or admit he was wrong when it came to WMD's, Rumsfeld, U.S. Attorney Gonzales, securing Iraq's freedom, or the war on terror.
I personally admire a person who can stick to their guns and not give up on their ideals or beliefs due to poll pressure. A person who uses their moral compass to get the job done, knowing they will not go beyond what their moral compass allows. Novelist, Andrew Klavan, recently compared Bush to Batman. Klavan says, "Doing what's right is hard, and speaking the truth is dangerous." Like Bush, most of us have learned that the hard way.
