I don't really see why the media is calling this a bad thing, I have to admit, I am impressed with Bush after hearing/reading some of them. Because he's a politician, I've factored politician "Face" or BS into my opinion of him. I've liked him, but wouldn't be surprised if I found out he had some dirty secret, or that his whole spirtuality was BS to reel in the christian voters, etc. But wow, seeing how he speaks in a "trusted" conversation, how true he is to the public figure he displays, I admit, I'm impressed. I know he's a man of conviction, and really seems to go with Right over Polls, but this really reaffirms it to me. He spoke like a guy who actually believes in what he's saying when he's on stage, and he genuinely wanted to better things, not just achieve the office and notch his belt for the milestone. I'm impressed, I like the way Bush doesn't play politics. And while it might not necessarily have been "right" of the guy who did the taping, I think he's going the right way saying he's going to give the tapes to Bush rather than sell them. The "Bush Tapes" controversy isn't what I came to expect from the news snippits and front pages I saw before actually looking into it. It seems like the media is trying hard to make this an example of how horrible Bush is, but reality doesn't support it.
