Particularly Apt Quote

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
Theodore Roosevelt
In response to the twisted way in which the Bush/Blair conference has been portrayed in the MSM both print and television. Hey, you idiot reporters, the conference was not about the mistakes, it was about the progress! A man with integrity admits that mistakes may have been made, but he does not dwell on them, he learns from them and he goes on!
