A Must Read

This article is so good.

Bush's Mistake and Kennedy's Error

It's not political. There is no left side, nor right side.

Just logical.

Basically, with the House & Senate at odds with the White House these days, we are looking very indecicivly as a country. We don't seem sure of ourselves.

We need to start a healing process and that starts with Step One:

To quote the article:

Imagine what would happen if George W. Bush delivered the following speech:

This administration intends to be candid about its errors. For as a wise man once said, "An error does not become a mistake until you refuse to correct it." We intend to accept full responsibility for our errors.... We're not going to have any search for scapegoats ... the final responsibilities of any failure are mine, and mine alone.

Bush's popularity would skyrocket, and respect for his ability as a thoughtful leader willing to change his mind in the teeth of new evidence would soar. That is precisely what happened to President John F. Kennedy after the botched Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba, when he spoke these very words.
