NYT Nails It

2 comments June 9th, 2005at 12:49pm Posted by Eli

From one of today’s editorials, on the former anti-environmental oil industry lawyer who has “been fighting the same fight in his new job” by editing government reports on climate change to downplay or discredit global warming:

It’s sad to think of a White House run by people who believe that a problem can be edited out of existence.

And it’s downright scary to think of a White House that doesn’t believe there’s a problem that can’t be edited (or spun, or denied) out of existence, and, worse yet, believes that this is preferable to actually fixing the problem.

Yes, it may be easier to paper over problems than it is to actually solve them, but it’s disastrous in the long run, and it’s not a hallmark of accountability or resolute, courageous leadership, which President Bush supposedly personifies.

    “If the Party could thrust its hand into the past and say this or that even, it never happened that, surely, was more terrifying than mere torture and death.” — George Orwell, 1984
