More on Campaign Speech to U.N.

Here's more on Bush's preach, er, speech at the UN in a NYTimes editorial:

Mr. Bush might have done better at wooing broader international support if he had spent less time on self-justification and scolding and more on praising the importance of international cooperation and a strengthened United Nations. Instead, his tone-deaf speechwriters achieved a perverse kind of alchemy, transforming a golden opportunity into a lead balloon.

Kofi Annan gave a speech afterward saying something like "People who tell others to play by the rules should do so themselves."
