29. I always felt like 43 fooled himself about his motives.

He thought he had better motives than he had and thought he was a better person than he was. At least that was my take.

When push came to shove though, he refused all Cheney's pressure to pardon Scooter Libby. So in that way Brennan isn't completely wrong.

So pathetically needy. What did his daddy do to him. n/t ginnyinWI Apr 2018 #1
