Dueling Quotes

From the AP wires, separated by a couple years:

"I have heard the anguish in his voice and seen his eyes when we talk about the danger in Iraq and the fact that youngsters are over there in harm's way. And he's a good, decent man. He's a caring fellow."

"I looked the man in the eye. I was able to get a sense of his soul."

Both are from "Mr. Mandate" George Bush. The first is his defense of Sec. Rumsfeld's latest PR debacle. The second is his assessment of Vladimir Putin, who has since turned from the west and embraced good-old Russian despotism. Makes you wonder about his psychiatric skills.
