This New York Times story speaks for itself. It is about a senior Bush official who is speaking out because of his loss of faith in the president. I know of what he speaks. Even now when I say or write things that are critical of President Bush or the administration it is from a sense of sadness and not from anger. It is the sort of thing I hate doing because it is the sort of thing I simply don’t want to be true. But these things are true and Matthew Dowd deserves nothing but empathy, respect, and credit.
