Joe Conason: Why Bush’s Speech Didn’t Matter

If America’s need for substantial leadership were not so grave, we might find some dark amusement in George W. Bush’s latest attempt to escape his own political quagmire. Sinking to Nixonian levels of public distrust and disdain in most polls, and facing a Democratic Congress, he tried to shift the focus to health care, climate change and educational reform in his annual address to Congress.

As his presidency enters its twilight years, Bush evidently wishes he could revisit the sunny days of “compassionate conservatism,” when gauzy proposals and happy talk so easily beguiled so many voters.

But even his answers to health care, climate change and educational reform are warped.

There is no way to escape the clutches of greedy people.
