Let me first state that I am not a fan of Mr. Bush. However, this is rather painfull to watch. He doesn't answer the tough questions and is basically non-responsive to any question which challenges any of his previous judgments. I can't imagine this conference will be well-received. I'm curious as to whether this will hurt his standing with some of the people who were unsure of him and his policies. Also, did he say "I'm disappointed in some of the troops"!?!?
