Fighting Spirit

President Bush has come out swinging in his speech

to troops in Louisiana. Richard Cohen will be very disappointed. The

President is talking about the dangerous world we face and the resolve

he has maintained “since I walked in the rubble of 9/1l.” He firmly

defended his reliance on the intelligence about Saddam’s weapons. This

election isn’t about “jobs” it’s about missions -to remove the lethal

threats we face.

P.S. On the most crucial issue we face, the race against John Kerry is

more of a parallel with 1972 than with Michael Dukakis’s candidacy in

1988. As the public was able to easily recognize with respect to George

McGovern, decorated veterans can be soft on defense.
