Guru's Quote of the Weekend

  • New Hampshire: What does a man with absolutely no convictions sound like?

    Asked last week if he still stood by his 2002 vote authorising the use of force, [Republican John] Sununu, who has served just one term in the Senate, said: "I can't answer that question. I don't know what the answer to that question is or should be.
    Sununu wasn't asked "100 years from now, will history look back and say Bush's Iraq War was the right move" - he was asked if he personally still stood by his vote. And he can't answer that question. He doesn't know wthat the answer "should be." That is the epitome of a lack of convictions. Instead of saying what he actually thinks, he only wanted to say what was most politically expedient, and he couldn't even figure out what that answer "should be." Shamefully devoid of convictions. I completely understand the frustrations and motivations of Steve Marchand, Gary Hirshberg, and Katrina Swett.
