The Smile and The Knife in the Back

I read last night on Jeff Jarvis’ blog that George W Bush called John Kerry “heroic” in an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show which airs this morning.

This is the same guy whose political advisers approved the Swift Boat ads which accused Kerry of lying about his record in Vietnam. I bet we’ll find out sometime after the election that Bush himself approved of those ads.

We are witnessing a President who has his hatchet men do his dirty work and then appears on TV to pretend he’s above it all.

Would you like a boss who does that? A co-worker who does that? A business partner who does that? I wouldn’t.
