Mr. Rogers and President Bush
This commentator speaks of Mr. Rogers unrelentless sincerity. I actually think of George W. in those terms as well. One of my colleagues characterized a debate between Saddam and Bush as "a debate between two liars." I don't think so. The comparison is ludicrous, insulting and shows no real sensitivity to the fundamental difference between a leader like Bush and a tyrant like Saddam. I think that within the bounds of the kind of diffidence required of a public servant, Bush is about as candid and sincere a president as we've had in ages.
