Well, if this election will bring on some change, it will be for Bush the smarter who might have now a POTUS who listens for him.

While I do remember campaign remarks about modeling foreign policy after Poppy’s, I only now found out he actually sought advice from Brent Scowcroft

Democratic sources say that former Bush 41 National Security Adviser Brent Scowcroft is one of the people whom Barack Obama has been consulting about how to craft his national security team. Knowledgeable sources say Obama reached out to Scowcroft two days ago to discuss defense and national security issues.

yeah, I know – it’s from Andrea Mitchell, but it’s corroborated and fits what Obama said during the campaign

“The truth is that my foreign policy is actually a return to the traditional bipartisan realistic policy of George Bush‘s father, of John F. Kennedy, of, in some ways, Ronald Reagan, and it is George Bush that’s been naive and it’s people like John McCain and, unfortunately, some Democrats that have facilitated him acting in these naive ways that have caused us so much damage in our reputation around the world,” he said.

Some of Obama’s base is confused. But then again, when were they not? had they chanted less and paid more attention to his words….

Anyway, the fact remains, that Poppy’s back after his own son is allowed to retire with all the accumulated wealth and no accountability as previously agreed.

Hope and change! Change and hope!


Wall Street journal informs us of an entire slew of Sowcroft proteges to come

Many of the Republicans emerging as potential members of the Obama administration have professional and ideological ties to Brent Scowcroft, a former national-security adviser turned public critic of the Bush White House.
