This is why I respect President Bush as much as I do. He tells it like it is. No matter whether you agree with him or his policies, you can always count on him standing by his word. In Washington, these days, that’s a rare guarantee to get. A big problem with Clinton is that you never really know what you’ll get, because he’s always testing the water before he commits himself. Maybe you agree with him today, but if he gets wind of a poll stating the opposite, he’ll flip faster than a truck stop pancake.
Back to President Bush. The Chixie Dicks once again proved what immature asses they are on television last night. Today, I read that Bush has made a comment regarding the Chicks, and instead of trying to argue it in my own words, I’m going to use Bush’s words, as they are exactly on point with my feelings.
Of the singing Texas trio, who have been outspoken critics of the U.S.-led war, Bush said, “The Dixie Chicks are free to speak their mind.”
At the same time, Bush added: “They shouldn’t have their feelings hurt just because some people don’t want to buy their records when they speak out. You know, freedom is a two-way street.”
and this, my friends, is what leaders are made of.
