Bush speaking tonight

A friend calls this a "President=Commander in Chief" meld:

George W. Bush as a president, Mr. Snow said, is not somebody who is going to cease to be bold because there has been -- because right now people are concerned about the progress of the war. Instead he understands his obligation as commander in chief is to go ahead and address forthrightly big problems and come up with solutions that not only are going to have political appeal, but they’re also going to be effective in making life better for Americans.”

There is something kind of sick, and dangerous to democracy, when a guy who ducked his military service and gets off on parading around in weird uniforms encourages his flack to present him in the Commander in Chief role.

Maybe he'd like to kick things around with these guys. Of course, things didn't turn out so well for the last two.
