A real leader faces the music,<br/>even when he doesn’t like the tune. - anonymous

So Photoshop is pretty good, right? But I knew this picture was Photoshopped when I first saw it. Oh, not because the artist did a bad job, but mainly because I had seen the Bush-playing-guitar picture before.

So in the interest of fairness, I’m also providing the original picture in context, so you can see the Real Bush In Action.

I suppose I shouldn’t complain too, too much. I mean the President did rubberneck fly over New Orleans in Air Force One to gawk at assess the damage.. What a guy.

And I’ll leave you with a handful of quotations that do a pretty good job of reflecting what my opinions are about good leadership.
