Bush Called America A Failed Country
"It is the heart and will of America that gives me confidence when I say that we can solve the biggest problem facing our country, and that is a failed country, and a failed culture. A culture which once delineated right from wrong and good from bad has shifted to a culture that flouts virtue and revels in irresponsibility. It's a culture that says if it feels good, do it, and be willing to blame."-- 1996 Republican Convention. Is he a wishy-washy, icky-picky flip-flopper, too? By the GOP standards against Kerry - of course.
"... if it feels good, do it, and be willing to blame."
Posted on Thu, Mar. 20, 2003Except, as Ara Rubyan pointed out May 4, Bush has never blamed the right people.
Update 11:28 And from April, 2004. EJ Dionne in his column offers this Bush quote from earlier that month:
We stand for a culture of responsibility in America. We're changing the culture of this country from one that has said, if it feels good, do it, and if you got a problem, blame somebody else, to a culture in which each of us are responsible for the decisions we make in life."
And then describes how Bush's reaction to the Aug 6, 2001 PDB was decidely underwhelming in this regard.
