A Last-Minute (Hypothetical) Conversation with George Bush

POLITICAL DISCLOSURE STATEMENT: I'm a registered Republican (by default) but consider myself a conservative with a few libertarian leanings.


Last November, I conducted a hypothetical interview with President George W. Bush (11/21, "Thank You, Mr. President"). Based on a large response I received from the people who read this piece, it was very successful. Apparently, it was also fair. I received only a very small amount of criticism about perceived bias, and it was almost evenly divided. Some people thought I favored the President; about an equal number felt I was too harsh on him.

Considering the excitement, trepidation and other emotional states today's election already has evoked, I thought it would be fun to revisit the Oval Office for another conversation with President Bush (albeit only a hypothetical get-together).

As I usually do when writing politically oriented material, I have posted my standard "disclosure statement." I believe that if some personal bias does come through, readers are entitled to know what direction it is coming from. (Maybe the mainstream media should consider adopting something like this?)

Now, access, read and hopefully enjoy: "A Last-Minute (Hypothetical) Conversation with George W. Bush" at: http://www.gillespieresearch.com/cgi-bin/s/article/id=348.
