Even a Broken Clock, etc.

George W. Bush accidentally told the truth while visiting Brazil.

From your Chicago Sun-Times:
Eyeing three coming presidential elections in Latin America, Bush said citizens must choose ''between two competing visions'' for their future.

One, he said, pursues representative government, integration into the world community and freedom's transformative power for individuals.

''The other seeks to roll back the democratic progress *** by playing to fear, pitting neighbor against neighbor and blaming others for their own failures to provide for the people,'' he said.
The story did not indicate whether Bush's statement, translated into Portuguese, was interpreted by the Brazilians as irony or hypocrisy.
