Bush at the UN

BUSH AT THE UN….Clifford May argues in NRO that Bush’s speech to the UN was just fine. He “stuck to his guns,” you see. Jonathan Gradowski isn’t impressed:

To fully grasp just how stupid May’s advice is, try to imagine what would happen if you applied May’s dictum — “stick to your guns” and speak with unchecked candor — on your next job interview. It might serve you well to point out the simple truth (don’t be afraid, stick to your guns): Mr. CEO, your company faces irrelevance if it fails to hire me.

And throw in a firm Harrumph for good measure. That’ll show him who’s boss.

But of course, you’ll still be unemployed….

Indeed, there’s the rub. But then, I don’t think George Bush has ever really had to interview for a job in quite the same way as the rest of us. Maybe that’s the difference.
