more broken bush promises
Cooped Up reminds me to link Dwight Meredith's excellent post on yet another campaign Bush broke. Jeff's comment is spot-on: "Of the many promises that George W. Bush made during the 2000 campaign, few rankle so much today as his pledge that, if elected, he would govern as 'a uniter, not a divider.'"
From the way he's run his presidency* -- indeed, from his actions during the Florida dispute -- isn't it obvious he never had any intention of abiding by that promise anyway?
*One small but significant exception: Bush deserves credit for denouncing the wrongheaded attacks on Muslims in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, and asserting that America's beef is not with Islam. That gesture, welcome and necessary as it was, hardly excuses his other actions, though.
