Using GWB as an example is inflammatory. Alas, it is good that we do
have the man doing the right thing.
One thing about a VERY INTELLIGENT person, it is amazing as to how
quickly they can change information into knowledge and use their experience
and wisdom to grow further. One thing about really stupid people is that
they might be well educated, yet be dysfunctional (e.g. leadership of
some European countries.) It is also amazing as to the continued inertia
to repeat a history of poor choices by European leadership.
There will be little difference in American policy between 2mos ago and 2mos
from now. The differences will mostly be the actions and jumping through
hoops that are necessary for 'European' sensibilities. If the 'European' leadership
was 'wise', they would already understand what is going on, without having
to be EDUCATED by George Bush.
