Got Your Back

Bushusatodaygw

Karl, that was quite a morning you had yesterday.

Certainly, desperate times deserve … a mad media dash to the Diplomatic Reception Room.  And they ate up your background.  Sure, it wasn't subtle.  But time was short, and you'd already done Rushmore.

I don't know about framing framers and resonating GW's, and all of that, but it sure makes a difference who you have behind you these days.
