Why did Woodward use the Liar Bush as his primary source?
Edited on Sun Apr-18-04 02:41 AM by TruthIsAll
I have not read the book, but I will never assume anything Bush says is true. Experience has taught us to assume a lie. But yet Woodward uses Bush as his primary source.

Why would he take everything Bush said to him at face value?
Why would Bush tell the truth to Woodward? He lies to everyone else.

I don't trust Woodward.

2. My nutshell view on Woodward
I think he's balancing keeping his access with full reporting.

3. Because Woodward is a longtime spook...
and "the company" has been instrumental in the rise and fortunes of the BFEE

4. I'm holding my thoughts
about him until after tomorrows 60 miniute report. I really don't trust Woodward on anything he's said since he is such GOP shrill, but I always give the "benefit of the doubt."

I too, wonder why he wrote this book. Weird. Something definitely stinks.
