A reader writes about last night's awful address:
The president waits so long to speak to the public and when he speaks two points stand out: First there is no recognition--not even the slightest--of any failure by his administration in the process. Second he relies almost exclusively on fear to sell his medicine--not reason, not patriotism, not a sense that America as a nation will have to share some serious loss.
No accountability and fear: the two hallmarks of the Bush years. We truly need a real president soon.
