The Corner

Bush in Prague

Like Tom Gross, who makes excellent points, I am also looking forward to hearing Bush’s speech in Prague. But at the same time, as with the debate in The Corner over compassionate conservatism and disappointment in the practice of the administration, I fear Bush will give a rousing speech in favor of democracy and liberty, but will only reinforce the chasm between his rhetoric and his administration’s actions. My two cents ‘ on disappointment in his foreign policy is out in Aspenia, the journal of the Aspen Institute in Italy.
