I listened to the entire speech that President bush gave yesterday at the National Endowment for Democracy. I couldn't help but think "were have you been for the last year?" This is the President Bush that we voted for. If he would do this more often, he would at least have another 10% in his approval rating. You see, I think part of his approval rating slide is that his base doesn't feel that he's displayed any leadership on big issues.
