The Buck Stops (belatedly) Here

Looks like President Bush is finally owning up to his role in the Niger uranium charade.

President Bush on Wednesday accepted personal responsibility for a discredited portion of last winter's State of the Union address that suggested Saddam Hussein was shopping for nuclear material in Africa.
"I take personal responsibility for everything I say, absolutely," the president said during an hour-long White House news conference where he sought to quell a controversy that has dogged his administration for weeks.
It was the first time he had specifically taken responsibility for the words. In the past, he sidestepped the question, taking responsibility only for his decisions.

I assume the next thing Bush will do is announce that he continues to have strong confidence in himself.
