Letting slip the truth
I think we would prefer to be treated like adults, not children, but chief of staff Andy Card says that's just how the President views the American people: like a 10-year-old. Can't we do better than the Kerry response here? It's not just that he's failed as a "family leader" (though clearly he has), it's that he's-the-parent-we're-the-children is an insulting, inappropriate model. It does certainly explain why he doesn't feel the need to tell the public the truth about things like war. We're just not ready to handle it....
