Bush had (lengthy for him) wretched press conference today. It was so filled with deception that I am feeling ill for having listened to so much of it. I will cover it later, but I wanted to make a note on something that appears in the last post, namely, the art of self-negotiation. Bush now claims that his meaning, when he said "The great desire of people in Congress is for me to negotiate with myself" was, in fact, that they wanted him to talk about his feelings, so they'd know. Showing his mind, so that people with different views would know how to counter-negotiate. Bush, Most Secretive President, believes negotiation should take place when you know exactly what he wants to tell you.
