It's pretty sad that anyone would buy into the garbage coming from this administration. Our own president admitted he doesn't even read the newspapers. How does he know what to think? How does he know what info. is good and what is not? He cannot. So, how can anyone trust his word? Most of us here at ATS probably know more about what's going on in the real world than he ever will. It's pathetic.

By his own admission:

Will Rogers said that all he knew is what he read in the newspapers. That certainly is not true of George W. Bush, who verified what has been suspected for some time. He doesn't read them, even though he gets to his office pretty early in the morning and chances are a news summary is one of the things on his desk when he arrives.
That somewhat startling revelation was about the only news to emerge from a highly touted one-hour interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer. It was a curious mixture of defiance, anger, boredom and strained humor that seemed to reflect Bush's true nature somewhat better than the rehearsed appearances that are the usual way Americans see him.

Condi Rice gives George the news with the proper spin on it.

I'm surprised his news handlers let him talk to Diane. They keep a pretty tight rein on him and he very seldom speaks off the cuff ... for the reasons you see there in the Sawyer interview.

Contrast this with Kennedy, who had speed reading courses and would read through everything that crossed his desk (and would read the Times each day, front to back... so they say. With speed reading it probably took no more than an hour.)
