With the SAEN...

What you see is, sadly, what you get. On page 7B of today's paper is the regular column by Leonard Pitts. It is about the story that never was; the recent release of tapes between Bush and a "friend." What is clear from the tapes is that in private Bush is the same as in public. I think that is a good thing, but the SAEN editorial staff slapped this headline on to the column: "With Bush, sad to say, what you see is what you get." Yes, this accurately reflects the sentiments of the column, but think about this for a second. What if Bush was completely different in private that his public persona. The press would have had a field day, but the tapes prove otherwise so the press has to report something and they chose to just complain about Bush the man. Personally, I find it refreshing that a politician is the same in private as he/she is in private. Final note: the original headline to this column in the Herald was: "Tape of Bush shows us only more of the same." I am no expert, but it looks like the SAEN is trying to be sensational.
