The President gets candid

Speaking on the Medicare prescription drug benefit today, President Bush defended the early missteps with an amazingly candid piece of logic:

“Anytime Washington passes a new law, sometimes the transition period can be interesting,” the president said.

It’s a good thing that “any time” doesn’t apply to the PATRIOT Act. We wouldn’t like the implications of that much. Nope, not at all. Those of us who care about the Constitution, at least.
