  •  Did the President act in good faith on (4+ / 0-)

    FISA?  Or in making the case for war in Iraq? Or in shoving the Prescription Plan down the throat of Congress?  Or in handling the leak investigation in the White House?  Or in Clear Skies?  Or in fighting the 911 Commission?  Or...

    It goes on and on and on. How many times does Bush have to shove your face in the dirt before you figure out he's NOT acting in good faith.

    Really.  

    Read it again, and weep:

    The aide said that guys like me were ''in what we call the reality-based community,'' which he defined as people who ''believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.'' I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. ''That's not the way the world really works anymore,'' he continued. ''We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.''

    This Oct 04 Suskind article

    says it all.

    Good faith?  

    That's not the way Bushco works.

    Keep studying that reality, Obama.  

    What a disappointment.
