For Presidents Day - Whitehouse quote of the day

Asked for comment, White House spokesman Ken Lisaius said, "The president makes policy decisions based on what the best policies for the country are, not politics. People who suggest otherwise are ill-informed."

Am I the only one who has difficulties believing Mr. Lisaius and the faction he represents?

Thanks to, here's the definition of Politics:


  1. The art or science of government or governing, especially the governing of a political entity, such as a nation, and the administration and control of its internal and external affairs.

  2. The activities or affairs engaged in by a government, politician, or political party: “All politics is local” (Thomas P. O'Neill, Jr.). “Politics have appealed to me since I was at Oxford because they are exciting morning, noon, and night” (Jeffrey Archer).

  3. The methods or tactics involved in managing a state or government

  4. Intrigue or maneuvering within a political unit or group in order to gain control or power

  5. Political attitudes and positions

  6. The often internally conflicting interrelationships among people in a society

Everything Bush does is politics, whether it be the best policy for the nation or not. I think people suggesting otherwise are the ill informed ones.

BTW here's the origin of President's Day. Here I thought we were celebrating ALL presidents. Actually we're just celebrating George's birthday (Washington that is...the current George was born on July 6, 1946)
