    Which was a mistake, if true.

    So if someone says, "I know I'm doing the wrong thing, but I don't care," you define that as a mistake. Hm. Okay, got it.

    Bush was not the architect of the invasion of Iraq. He just listened to the wrong people: Cheney, Wolfowitz, and Rumsfeld. It was a mistake, a bad one, and a lack of good judgement. Now, we're paying the price and so are the Iraqis.

    Except that he listened to them because he was already inclined to do it himself (and long before 9/11). As I said before, nothing but daddy issues.

    Maybe so, maybe not. How do you know what his motivations were?

    His interviews, his behavior, and the accounts of many people who have or had close relationships with him.

    Just out of curiosity, how deeply have you researched the guy? In my experience, the more people learn about him, the less they like him.

    Really?

    No, I admit I haven't researched him deeply, just formulated opinions based on seeing him in action as the pres. Could it be that I'd have an even more negative opinion if I knew him better?

    I suppose he could be one of those extreme narcissists who believes, "If I'm doing it, it can't possibly be wrong."

    Barring temporal mind-reading abilities, we'll never know.
