Wrong Again, Naturally

Where weapons are concerned, it seems that George Bush just can't get anything right. After leading us to war in Iraq based on bad or manufactured intelligence, it now seems that all of his assertions about Iran's nuclear capabilities are also incorrect. In light of the most recent national intelligence estimate, which represents the consensus of all intelligence agencies, one might think that it's time to ratchet down the rhetoric. Maybe have a cooling off period, find a time to talk and dare I say, perhaps even find some common ground.

To quote Steve Martin's Saturday Night Live character, Theodoric of York . . . "NAAAAAHHH!"

Said the President, "Look, Iran was dangerous, Iran is dangerous and Iran will be dangerous if they have the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon." In other words, in spite of the current evidence, not only does the President believe that Iran continues to develop a program but he continues to entertain the possibility of pre-emptive military action.

No weapons? No problem!

If there's one thing that can be said about George Bush, it's that he's consistent. It's a hallmark of his administration. If politics were a sport, his consistency might put him in a hall of fame. Statues and monuments might be built and commemorative coins issued in his honour.

But there will be no hoopla or fanfare for Mr. Bush. Because unfortunately, where consistency is concerned, Mr. Bush is consistently wrong.
