Spin!

This is from David Boyle: Authenticity: Brands, Fakes, Spin and the Lust for Real Life.

    "Former U.S. President Ronald Reagan was notorious for his almost-total dependence on teleprompter scripts when speaking in public. He was roundly criticized for not knowing what he thought about an issue unless his aides spelled it out for him.  But current American president George W. Bush surpasses that.  It was discovered his teleprompter script includes words like "wow!" - fueling speculation he doesn't even know what he feels without advice from Karl Rove and other handlers."

Sad, isn't it?   It is hard not to once again compare him to Abraham Lincoln, and how much has been lost of authenticity with this administration.
