Bushisms = Putinisms?

One wonders what's worse ... the utterances of the President of the United States or those of the President of the Russian Federation. On the occasion of the burial of Anna Politkovskaya, a murdered Russian opposition journalist who was very critical of the Kremlin, he said that her murder has done more damage to Russia than her writings (I am paraphrasing because I couldn't find the exact quote).

It is one of my maxims never to assume bad will where sheer incompetence suffices ...

Although that comment could compete with Bush's infamous ones, Putin's track record is nothing compared with Bush's when it comes to sheer incompetence.

I fully concur. That's why I don't assume bad intentions in the case of Mr Bush.
