Quote of The Day, from The State of The Union Speech

President Bush:

"Today, having come far in our own historical journey, we must decide: Will we turn back, or finish well?

"Before history is written down in books, it is written in courage. Like Americans before us, we will show that courage and we will finish well. We will lead freedom's advance. We will compete and excel in the global economy. We will renew the defining moral commitments of this land. And so we move forward -- optimistic about our country, faithful to its cause, and confident of the victories to come."

I like the quote better than I like GW. :) I would simply have to disagree with him about what "finishing well" means. Once a task has been undertaken and flaws become visible, is it "finishing well" to pretend they never existed and "stay the course"? Or does "finishing well" mean that when the flaws are amply evident and the cost of human life spirals out of control that to "finish well" one must re-evaluate, make changes, and gracefully back out and let the government of the country we have attacked attempt to put the pieces of their country back together again?

I cannot support his definition of "finishing well". It is pompous, self inflated and bad judgement.
