George W. Bush er skåret i papp i norske medier. Dvs han er en karikatur. Det er en ren gavepakke at han er kåret til årets kjeltring i en avstemning i USA. Men både Bush og Amerika er noe langt mer.

David Ignatius har en fin liten detalj om mennesket Bush. En journalist nevnte at Lyndon B. Johnson ikke fikk sove under Vietnam, og spurte hvordan Bush hadde det.

Bush opened the emotional curtain at a news conference last week. A reporter noted that Lyndon Johnson hadn’t been able to sleep well during the Vietnam War and asked Bush if this was a «painful time» for him. He gave an unexpectedly personal answer: «Most painful aspect of my presidency has been knowing that good men and women have died in combat. I read about it every night. And my heart breaks for a mother or father or husband or wife or son and daughter. It just does. And so when you ask about pain, that’s pain.»
