President Bush On NBC Nightly News

On the January 10th edition of NBC Nightly News, there was a short story about President Bush's visit to Jerusalem to try to bring about a peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians. David Gregory got a chance to ask President Bush a few questions and one of them was concerning the presidential race and the push for change in candidates of both parties. David Gregory asked the President the following, "Do you see this message of change as anything other than a rejection of your presidency?" President Bush answered by saying the following, "No, listen if you're running for office, you can't run for office and not say I am an agent of change, it's just American politics, and uh uh if I were running for office at this point I'd be saying vote for me, I'm gonna be an agent of change."

Let me get this straight, did the President of the United States just admit on the national news that politicians who are running for office lie to the American people? Did he just admit that they will say anything to get you to vote for them? Did he say that even if they say they are going to change the way things are done in our nations capital, that when they get elected nothing is actually going to change?

If anyone believes one word of what the candidates running for office say after hearing our president make that statement, they obviously don't have a brain in their head.
