One of several pathetic points in Bush’s press conference today:
[Bush] hotly challenged the premise of one question that his policies had made America less prestigious and respected around the world, saying that was just the view of some “elites” and other pantywaists in part of Europe. Go to China! he said. They still respect us there.
Yes, but China is one of the biggest supporters and perpetrators of nasty oppression on the planet. That’s the best we can do?
