Bush's Rose Garden stump (chump?) speech

Margaret Carlson wrote a piece for about President Bush's latest speech, in the Rose Garden. According to Ms. Carlson, the speech didn't go over too well.
Bush came to office with contempt for the Clinton way. He ended shipments of fuel to North Korea, bilateral talks and the construction of nuclear power plants. Bush sees himself as proven right in this scenario by the fact that North Korea behaved in kind, withdrawing from the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, expelling inspectors again and resuming its nuclear weapons program.
Bush's operational tactics only served to piss off Kim Jung Il, whereas Bill Clinton made lemonade when he was handed lemons. Interesting how the Bush Administration has blamed Clinton for troubles in both Iraq and North Korea.

These guys are accountable to no one.
