John's a wee bit upset at the Note for publishing what they claim is an advance copy of a Bush speech, when in fact it was a 1979 speech from Carter. I don't have a problem with that, but what I do have a problem with that is that they included this line in what they published:

Simply put, there is a malaise afflicting America.

A line which wasn't actually in Carter's speech and therefore doesn't appear in the copy they linked to. But, it's one of those factesque gems of history, so the Note of course had to recycle it.
