You can say it was just a different choice of words. But you'd be wrong.
We have a plaque on our desk with our favorite quote:
There's no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn't mind who gets the credit. - Ronald Reagan
Are we making sense here?
Yesterday we congratulated President Obama for his operation in Pakistan. We defended him against comments from our friends who criticized a) no photos, b) corpse cleaning, c) muslim ceremony, d) burial at sea, e) taking credit for policies that he opposed in 2008, or f) his self-centered statements in the above clip.
That was yesterday. That was yesterday when he brought pride to the country and accomplished his first campaign promise from 2008.
UPDATE Bob shares our measured concern:
We look back and, correctly or not, recall as many days of disappointment with President Bush as we've had days of pride with President Obama. The contrast is stark.
