I have been amazed at the Democrat attack on the Presidents appearance (flight and speech) on the USS Abraham Lincoln. Their attempt to make this into something other than what it was proves very revealing: for them everything has to be considered from the low political campaign gimmick mode; they are completely misconstruing what Bush is, how he is perceived by the American people, and what these battles against terrorists are all about. They are trying to make something that is high and noble into something low and base. Because it is revealing of their lack of seriousness about the war, it will hurt them, and hurt them badly, in my opinion. The people will trust them even less after these outburts. Here is John Podhoretzs amusing take on the issue.
