Fool The New York Times once, shame on Bush. Fool The New York Times an infinite number of times...

I know someone who, when he misbehaves, thinks that if he says he's sorry, not only does that make up for what he did, it means he never did what he did. If he does it again, and you get mad at him, it's not his fault - he hasn't done it again, he's doing it for the first time. His apology wiped the slate clean.

George W. Bush is sort of like that.
Empty Promise

One of the loftier moments in President Bush's State of the Union address came when he promised to improve the quality of the defense offered in death-penalty cases and to expand the use of DNA testing to prevent wrongful convictions.

A close look at Mr. Bush's budget, however, shows that his promise was largely illusory.

Mr. Bush is asking for $20 million for a hazily defined effort to train lawyers, judges and prosecutors in capital cases. This falls far short of the $75 million called for in the Justice for All Act, a broadly bipartisan law designed to address these and other vital justice-related issues. Mr. Bush signed it last October.
Hmm...Bush supports a concept, then fails to fully fund it. Where have we heard that before?

Oh, here. And here. And here. And here. And here. And here, here, and here.

It's a game the whole family can enjoy! Just type "Bush fails to fund" into Google and just see how many pages come up!

Seriously, though, catch the pattern? Bush makes a big announcement of some lovely-sounding program so he can get all the credit for his high-minded intentions. Then, he simply guts its funding so he doesn't have to do any of that nasty, intrusive, actual work (something "W" has never stood for in his entire wastrelly life) to implement it.

And he gets away with it, time after time after time. No one, at least in the MSM, ever calls him on it. Anyone saying he was a poor student has seriously misjudged him. He is amazingly capable of learning that he will never, ever be held accountable for anything he does - or fails to do - or, in this case, refuses quite happily to do.

Is The Times ever going to be on the same planet as a clue when it comes to George W. Bush?
