See, without knowing the actual motivations (which we probably never will), how can anyone assume what it's motivation was. The media got caught with their pants down, and now they are trying to say he's the one that pulled them down. He wasn't, even if he knew all along.

I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.
Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.
