An interesting point

I was listening to NPR this morning and they had a piece on George Soros. Apparently he spent $27 million during the last election to prevent Bush from being reelected. However one of his main goals is to spread democracy, as is Bush's proclaimed goal. Interesting.

However it seems that his main objection to Bush isn't like mine (that he lied to us and thus we can't trust anything he tells us) but rather that the man refuses to admit that he's wrong. There's definately something alarming in someone who won't admit to being wrong, either the possibility before hand or the fact afterwards. And one of the essays on Mike Stackpole's website used that point as well, that Bush could never learn or improve if he never admitted that he had made a mistake or was wrong. To my mind this implies progress, learning. And if you can't go forward then you're stagnant. Or worse, going backwards.
