Honesty in the White House: Unlike Bush, Obama Admits Mistake

George Bush could not say it. When he was asked about his mistakes in office, Bush could not think of one.

It's refreshing, then, that Barack Obama is honest enough to admit his mistakes and accept responsibility.

Here's how our friends at Think Progress summed up the difference between the two men:

President Obama said last night that he had “screwed up” with his nominees who withdrew over tax issues yesterday. “I've got to own up to my mistake, which is that ultimately it’s important for this administration to send a message that there aren’t two sets of rules,” said Obama. Andrew Sullivan notes that “it has taken Obama two weeks to say something that George W. Bush couldn't manage to say in eight years.”

Obama screwed up wanting to be president.He and his staff could run a campaign for 4 years but cant run the country for 2 weeks.His team is crumbling and he can't get anyone in his own party of good character to hold a cabinet seat .He is going to have to reach across the isle to find someone to seat.Thats what he meant by a new Washington.This stimulis package is about more government intrusion.This government is about bigger government not american citizens.Dem or doesn't matter, they make us think we have a chioce.Please people you are giving your freedoms away for a small gov. check.
