The gracious Bill Bennett on Gerald Ford's embargoed remarks about Bush:

From the Corner (where else?): (excerpts)
He slams Bush & Cheney to Woodward in 2004, but asks Woodward not to print the interview until he's dead. If he felt so strongly about his words having a derogatory affect, how about telling Woodward not to run the interview until after Bush & Cheney are out of office?

This is not courage, this is not decent.

The manly or more decent options are these:
  • 1. Say it to Bush's or Cheney's face and allow them and us to engage the point while you're around,
  • or 2. Far more decently, say nothing critical of Bush [that] will be on the record until his presidency is over.
  • There's a 3. Don't say anything critical of George Bush to Bob Woodward at all.
You're a former President Mr. Ford, show a little more decency to the incumbent who is in a very, very tough place and trying to do the right may recall those days and positions yourself.


He had a "4" as well, "Shut up! Shut up! SHUT UP!" but apparently that's trademarked by Bill O'Reilly so it was cut.

Yeah. Right.

Liberals like Woodward seem to have no problem with putting their own words in the mouths of dead conservatives. Just like the fake Bush National Guard documents. To liberals, a dead conservative is an opportunity to rewrite history with fabricated documents and fabricated interviews.

I don't believe Woodward for a moment. He's an unscrupulous liar who pissed away his credibility long ago, which must be why he is so revered by liberals.

I'd say that Woodward has reached a new low, but he hasn't really. He's just operating at his usual level.
