Bush apologizes for saying the truth ?

There must be something wrong again in the world. Bush apologizing to Berlusconi just because a biography of the latter stating that he was “hated by many”, seen as a “"regarded by many as a political dilettante who gained his high office only through use of his considerable influence on the national media...". It also stated that Berlusconi was "one of the most controversial leaders in the history of a country known for governmental corruption and vice".

The biography went on to say that Berlusconi was appointed to the prime minister's office in 1994, "however, he and his fellow Forza Italia Party leaders soon found themselves accused of the very corruption he had vowed to eradicate."

Hated by many is an understatement.

That he gained office though his control over the media is a fact

That he is controversial, there is no doubt, just today people demonstarate all over Italy against him.

That he is believed to be corrupt, is a fact: while in the past he managed to be released during law cases mostly due to the good techniques of his lawyers who managed to get the civil suits brought against him to last so long to decay, a judgment, almost certainly negative for him is expected in the fall. And his corruption is such that he is trying to pass a law to give him immunity for actions undertaken while he was not a Prime Minister, a Constitutional error according to more than 100 professors of Constitutional law.

So why is the White house apologizing ? for a change, they were not lying. Bush never apologized to the America people, to the parents of soldiers who died or were wounded in Iraq, to the world, for lying about Iraq. And the Italian People were not offended.

The world upside down…… and indeed Berlusconi can "far le corna" (see picture) if this is what his best allies think of him....
