I have been trying to empathize with a President whose supporters nearly all don’t know truth of the world. I try to, and I come to this question: How does Bush feel every morning when he wakes up to think…
“Do they believe that I am doing a good job? They don’t know the truth. I know people who love me. I won’t tell them anything of mistakes.”
Or perhaps he thinks, “We got the bad man. We got the bad man!” He wakes up thinking about the troops in Iraq. “Go get 'em, tiger,” he mentally urges his troops poised to defend the US in a heroic manner in Iraq.
He flip flops between a. and b.
I saw a quote of his that he said his actual position on this one is b.
Of course, being Bush must be profound. His apparency is to be a man who deceives and gets deceived. He must have some hint of what is truly reality. Doesn’t he realize what the people believe?
They should ask him in a press conference, “President, 75% of your supporters continue to believe that the Bush administration is saying Iraq was providing substantial support to al Qaeda. They are your supporters, and they will continue to support you if you keep them thinking that. Don’t you think there is a chance that you can get truth into the people?” The people are believing falsity.
These mistaken assumptions of American people go into the books for generations to come to scratch their heads in wonder, don’t they?
