      Neither is Bush I. The both of them are wise in the ways of the Middle East. Doesn't mean they wouldn't lie through their teeth if they would benefit in some way from doing so... Baker is a loyal Bush man, to the core.

      I honestly believe they are old school Republicans, and are probably a little frightened by the idiocy of the current crop of Republican Leadership. I know they scare the hell outta me.

      An aside: Wasn't Baker brought in to school Dubya at some point in his presidency? I seem to remember something like that... hmmm. Must go google.

    •  James Baker took his job ..... (0+ / 0-)

      .... as a diplomat seriously. He was-and-is a Bush family (and GOP) loyalist - but he simply approaches foreign policy issues with a sense of detachment that he wouldn't in most other arenas.
