Bush's Book List Gets More Islamophobic
This "must read IMHO" reminds me of Faux News watchers and Limbaugh acolytes. They only want to hear what they believe. They narrow their vision to their ideologies and refuse to recognize reality or any arguments which contradict their own opinions.
Accounts of a Feb. 28 "literary luncheon" at the White House suggest that President George W. Bush's reading tastes -- until now a remarkably good predictor of his policy views -- are moving ever rightward, even apocalyptic, despite his administration's recent suggestions that it is more disposed to engage Washington's foes, even in the Middle East.
What is remarkable about all of these books is -- much like the cherry-picked and manipulated intelligence stovepiped to Bush in the run-up to the Iraq War -- both their extraordinary ideological narrowness and their utility in the pursuit of a neo-conservative agenda, especially in the Middle East.
Yeah, I'm probably guilty of this behavior too. I do try to consider the "other side's" position, but can't contort my body to emulate it.
Don't you love how I eventually tie my graphics/photos into the post? Just asking
