Does he really believe this?


Democracies always reflect a country's customs and culture, and I know that," Mr. Bush told reporters today at a joint news conference with Mr. Putin. "Yet democracies have certain things in common; they have a rule of law, and protection of minorities, a free press, and a viable political opposition."

An ironic statement from a president who has repeatedly decided that the law does not apply to him, sought a constitutional amendment to curtail the rights of minorities, minimized his exposure to the press, and entrenched a majority in Congress by blatant gerry-mandering in his home state.
