Your President, as quoted in a not-so-bad column from Maureen Dowd yesterday:
Wherever he went, W. seemed dazzled by the can-do spirit of the J. Pierrepont Finches of the new Middle East. “It’s important for the president to hear thoughts, hopes, dreams, aspirations, concerns from folks that are out making a living,” he told Saudi entrepreneurs.
In Dubai, he commended young Arab leaders, saying, “The entrepreneurial spirit is strong.”
Reading George Bush quotes about the importance of mingling among real people is like being down wind of a hog confinement.
Oh, and entrepreneurial spirit? He should know, in the land of kings and princes. There it's a lot like the oilfields of Texas and ivy league schools, where daddy's money gets you anything you want, like tax shelter companies, professional sports teams, and other business opportunities, even if you are a failure.
