Here’s all you need to know about George Bush’s depth.
Last week he invited to the White House an all-star crew of old Washington foreign-policy and defense gurus – all the way back to Robert McNamara and Mel Laird, for Pete’s sake.
Ostensible purpose: a useful exchange of views on Iraq.
The discussion with Bush lasted about 10 minutes, according to The New York Times.
Then W. had everybody line up for a group photo. And then he was out of there – on his way to do some mountain biking, no doubt. Leaving the Big Guys (and one Gal, Madeline Albright) to talk with his staff.
Of course, given all the mess that crowd has kept us in the last 40 years, maybe I shouldn’t complain.
