Man who taped Bush conversations now has regrets

by Mark5019 / February 23, 2005 7:45 AM PST

WASHINGTON The man who secretly taped his private conversations with then-Texas-Governor George W. Bush now says he has regrets about it.

In recent days, Doug Wead (weed) allowed journalists to hear and broadcast the tapes, as he promoted his new book.

But now, he says, he's "come to realize that personal relationships are more important than history." Those words come in a letter he wrote to M-S-N-B-C's "Hardball" host, Chris Matthews, as he canceled plans to be on that show last night.

And he says he's telling his attorney that "any future proceeds from the book" should go to charity -- and that the tapes should be given to President Bush

He had to have been deliberately setting Bush up with leading questions as he made sure his tape recorder was functioning properly. I think that's like digging a hole in someone's path so that they will fall in.

Maybe he's really repenting, but his character has been exposed for all to see.

He learned pretty quickly that he lost a long time friend and his new liberal media sycophants -- that thought there was a "there" there with the drug angle, but quickly scuttled the rest because it made Bush look **GASP!** pretty darned good! -- didn't last long enough to make it through a week of book promotions.

Will Bush forgive him? Probably. But Wead doesn't deserve to be treated that well IMO. With friends like that ...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
