"This Administration Intends To Be Candid About Its Errors"

"This administration intends to be candid about its errors. For as a wise man once said, 'An error does not become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.' We intend to accept full responsibility for our errors.... We're not going to have any search for scapegoats ... the final responsibilities of any failure are mine and mine alone."

- John F. Kennedy

(Kennedy spoke those words following the botched Bay of Pigs invasion)

How strange it is to look back on a time when people were actually willing to accept responsibility for their actions and not recognize the concept as it applies to our current administration.

Hi Meggie!

Whatever else one thinks of Kennedy, it seems the man had the courage to own up to his responsibilities.
