The next issue of Esquire magazine will feature a political article by Ron Reagan concerning the Bush administration. Below is a sampling of his comments.

 

"The Bush Administration cannot be trusted."

 

"George W. Bush and his administration have taken normal mendacity to a startling new level far beyond lies of convenience."

 

"They traffic in big lies, indulge in any number of symptomatic small lies, and ultimately, have come to embody dishonesty itself. They are a lie. And people, finally, have started catching on."

 

"When Nobel laureates, a vast majority of the scientific community, and a host of current and former diplomats, intelligence operatives, and military officials line up against you, it becomes increasingly difficult to characterize the opposition as fringe wackos."

 

"Given candidate Bush's remarks, it was hard to imagine him, as president, flipping a stiff middle finger at the world and charging off adventuring in the Middle East."

 

"Even as of this writing, Dick Cheney clings to his mad assertion that Saddam was somehow at the nexus of a worldwide terror network."

 

"What followed was the usual administration strategy of stonewalling, obstruction and obfuscation."

 

"But image is everything in this White House, and that image of George Bush as a noble and infallible warrior in the service of his nation must be fanatically maintained, because behind the image lies*nothing?"

 

"He is ineloquent not because he cannot speak but because he doesn't bother to think."

 

"His Republican party, furthermore, seems a far cry from the current model, with its cringing obeisance to the religious Right and its kill-anything-that-moves attack instincts."
