Not Your Run-of-the-Mill Review
Timothy Goeglein gives the straight scoop on the often maligned Bush Administration.
Plagiarism The Heart Of The Beast
He readily, and freely admitted, partial plagiarizing of several columns he wrote for the News-Sentinel. Shattered and fearful, he feared immediate excommunication from his job (Deputy Director of White House Public Liaison), and from his immediate boss, George W. Bush, president of the US.
As one of Karl Rove’s aides, Goeglein worked inside the White House for 7 1/2 years. When tendering his resignation directly to Bush, Bush said, “I have known mercy and grace in my own life, and I am offering it to you now. You are forgiven.” Plagiary [YourDictionary] in this case, can be defined as “to take (ideas, writings, etc.) from (another) and pass them off as one’s own.” No killing, asphyxiation, poisoning, or stabbing, but a wrongdoing nonetheless. His clear regret about plagiarism was brought out in the first pages.
