A Last-Minute (Hypothetical) Conversation with George Bush
POLITICAL DISCLOSURE STATEMENT: I'm a registered Republican (by default) but consider myself a conservative with a few libertarian leanings.
Last November, I conducted a hypothetical interview with President George W. Bush (11/21, "Thank You, Mr. President"). Based on a large response I received from the people who read this piece, it was very successful. Apparently, it was also fair. I received only a very small amount of criticism about perceived bias, and it was almost evenly divided. Some people thought I favored the President; about an equal number felt I was too harsh on him.
Considering the excitement, trepidation and other emotional states today's election already has evoked, I thought it would be fun to revisit the Oval Office for another conversation with President Bush (albeit only a hypothetical get-together).
As I usually do when writing politically oriented material, I have posted my standard "disclosure statement." I believe that if some personal bias does come through, readers are entitled to know what direction it is coming from. (Maybe the mainstream media should consider adopting something like this?)
