Bush Look Into Another Soul

BUSH LOOKS INTO ANOTHER SOUL….You know, I’m willing to cut George Bush a fair amount of slack over Pakistan. There are just no good answers there. But did he really say this about Gen. Pervez Musharraf?

He’s been a loyal ally in fighting terrorists. He’s also advanced democracy in Pakistan.

Enough’s enough. Bush may feel like he has no choice but to support the guy, but it’s a travesty for a self-proclaimed democracy promoter to grovel like this over someone with Musharraf’s record. Just stop it.
