It's All About Bob

Forget some time for mourning Gerald Ford, Bob Woodward has an agenda to push. Before the body is even buried, Woodward begins "revealing" information from an interview. Naturally, it's used to bash George W. Bush.

Absolutely pathetic. These people wonder why they're so reviled.

Ford Disagreed With Bush About Invading Iraq
Former president Gerald R. Ford said in an embargoed interview in July 2004 that the Iraq war was not justified. "I don't think I would have gone to war," he said a little more than a year after President Bush launched the invasion advocated and carried out by prominent veterans of Ford's own administration.

In a four-hour conversation at his house in Beaver Creek, Colo., Ford "very strongly" disagreed with the current president's justifications for invading Iraq and said he would have pushed alternatives, such as sanctions, much more vigorously. In the tape-recorded interview, Ford was critical not only of Bush but also of Vice President Cheney -- Ford's White House chief of staff -- and then-Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, who served as Ford's chief of staff and then his Pentagon chief.

I'd suggest Woodward show some dignity and class, but that would assume he has any.
