President Bush had a sitdown with the Politico and his take on the the former President Carter (the idiot) is quite nice..
The money quote:
"Yes, well, what he ought to be saying is, is that America doesn't torture. If the implication there is that we do now, then he's wrong. And you bet we're going to protect ourselves by the use of military force. What he really is implying is -- or some imply -- you can be popular; if you want to be popular in the Middle East just go blame Israel for every problem. That will make you popular. Or if you want to be popular in Europe, say you're going to join the International Criminal Court.
Popularity is fleeting, Michael. Principles are forever."
The President is of course RIGHT....popularity is indeed fleeting...and Jimmah wouldn't know a principle if it smacked him upside the head.
