The other day, I was watching a documentary on what Tony Blair and George W. Bush thought of the war in Iraq and whether they now thought that it was a good idea to send their troops there to battle in the search of weapons of mass destruction. Reading between the lines, they sure seemed regretful and guilty, but they were trying hard to keep up a confident demeanor. Altogether, it was all very self-righteous and pompous. The way that George Bush has lied to the American public about Iraq, the tax cuts, the budget, the education bill and his interest in Africa, to name a few is ridiculous and careless presidential performance. Tony Blair's arrogance and misleading speeches aren't any better. He has lied about cutting taxes too, yet the financial pressures on citizens is not lessened.
Isn't this the way we always see politicians, though? Is it?
