Back when George W. Bush thought credibility was important:
GOP presidential hopeful George W. Bush challenged rival Al Gore's credibility while a chastened Gore apologized for getting "details wrong" in his campaign rhetoric during their second debate last night. "I think credibility is important," Bush said, when asked whether Gore's exaggerations were a serious issue. "It's going to be important for the president to be credible with Congress, important for the president to be credible with foreign nations. It's something people need to consider - I think this is an issue."For once I agree with the Shrub. Of course, in this case, Gore's credibility was being called into question because he: (1) used the wrong tense verb when talking about a girl having to stand in her classroom because of overcrowding and (2) gave the name of the wrong official that he traveled with while touring a disaster area in Texas. It's not like Gore mislead the nation about trivial things like THE IMMINENT THREAT OF NUCLEAR ANNIHILATION.
