LISTENING TO THE BUSH/BLAIR NEWS CONFERENCE: And comparing both of their answers to a question that was something like, "Why are traditional allies not supporting the war?" The Blair answer was something like, yes, there are differences of opinion, some are for us and some against us and these will need to be addressed after the war. The Bush answer was something like are you nuts, there's no problem whatsoever, we have more nations on our side than during Gulf War I--denial, basically. This whole "aura of inevitability" crap--defined as the persistent overstatement of one's case--is as annoying now as it was in 2000.
