And this is the guy who wants to be dictator

From a diary by litigatormom on Daily Kos, a portion of the 60 Minutes interview with The Commander-in-Chief:

    PELLEY: Do you think you owe the Iraqi people an apology for not doing a better job?

    BUSH: That we didn’t do a better job or they didn’t do a better job?

    PELLEY: Well, that the United States did not do a better job in providing security after the invasion.

    BUSH: Not at all. I am proud of the efforts we did. We liberated that country from a tyrant. I think the Iraqi people owe the American people a huge debt of gratitude, and I believe most Iraqis express that. I mean, the people understand that we’ve endured great sacrifice to help them. That’s the problem here in America. They wonder whether or not there is a gratitude level that’s significant enough in Iraq.

    PELLEY: Americans wonder whether . . .

    BUSH: Yeah, they wonder whether or not the Iraqis are willing to do hard work necessary to get this democratic experience to survive. That’s what they want.

    I heard him say, “I’m not a revengeful person,” and then I changed it.

    At this point, is he speaking like that on purpose?
