As usual I had my meeting with Budweiser under the palms of North Dale Mabry at Tanks Bar. We had some great German beer. He did not bring up politics, nor did I. He is still a big Bushie and I am still convinced that Bush's reputation is never going to survive either the first or second or last draft of history. For one thing, every memoir to come out of his administration has been an embarrassment and an indictment as each writer tries to cover his ass. But ... we will see.
