"...therefore the relationship between the federal government and tribes is one between sovereign entities," Bush replied."
Bush did struggle with this one, as I guess, almost anyone would, but his last sentence pretty much sums up the situation, though I would be willing
to bet the the one who asked this question knew full well what the relationship between the myriad Native America tribes and the federal government is
and was only trying to make some obscure politcal point, since the relationship between the US and the tribal nations has not changed in many, many
I've had pretty extensive experience with a number of tribes and I can tell you from my own experience that even if it took GW a few seconds to
compose his thoughts, he gave the best answer anyone could give to a question that was loaded to the gills.
