Why? Because those allying with Bush lose in their elections. Germany in ’02, South Korea in ’03, and Spain in ’04. Bush is the kiss of death.
And now, the President of Poland (part of the ever-dwindling "coalition of the
willing disenchanted") is distancing himself from Bush in a big way, saying that Poland too was "misled with the information on weapons of mass destruction."
Freedom Sausage, anyone? How about Freedom Springs Bottled Water?
UPDATE: Even Blair? The Observer apparently thinks so.
Downing Street knows that pictures of a grinning Bush clasping Blair by the shoulder are not what might be described as ‘politically helpful’.
‘We need a US that constructively engages with the European Union and the wider world,’ Giddens wrote in last week’s Prospect magazine. ‘I hope a Democratic President will be elected who pursues such an aim.’
(Anthony Giddens is Blair’s "Dick Morris").
