What Does Bush Believe?

While a lot of people are shaking their heads at Bush's claim that the US does not torture, the more important question is this: what does Bush really believe? Was he lying knowingly? Or does he believe that we do not torture because that's what he's been told?

Bush is damned on a large number of counts, but lying at the root of many of them is his sloth and incuriosity. Bush can find two hours in his short workday for exercise, but he can't find five minutes to glance at CNN or flip through a newspaper. While Cheney and the equally evil men around him drive the United States down the road of permanent disrepute and hatred, Bush is a passenger sitting in the back watching Monsters Inc. on the dvd player.
