Bushian logic

It doesn't quite have the solidity of Aristotelian logic:
"We will set a long-term goal for reducing global greenhouse gas emissions. By setting this goal, we acknowledge there is a problem. And by setting this goal, we commit ourselves to doing something about it."

- George Bush, yesterday
Kirstie Alley acknowledged that she had a weight problem. She had a long-term goal of losing 50 pounds. But until she actually committed herself to a course of action (Jenny Craig), setting that goal didn't mean a thing.

You solve problems by laying out a course of action, not by "setting a goal."
