This in today from The New York Times:

A Candidate Who Says What He Means (Most of the Time)
Published: August 5, 2004

This no doubt confirmed the worst fears of President Bush’s most severe critics.

As he signed a $417 billion Pentagon spending bill today, the president offered his own unique take on how the money would be used. “Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we,” Mr. Bush said. “They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people — and neither do we.”

Obviously, the president didn’t mean it quite that way.

Yeah… Sure he didn’t. 😆 😆 😆

The article continues with a report of John Kerry’s trip to Missouri, where he spoke to a convention of minority journalists. One of the questions he fielded had to do with how he would have reacted, had he been reading to school kids on 9/11. His response:

“First of all, had I been reading to children, and had my top aide whispered in my ear, `America is under attack,’ I would have told those kids very politely and nicely that the president of the United States had something that he needed to attend to, and I would have attended to it,” Mr. Kerry said to applause from the group.

Bush is speaking to the same group tomorrow. Gee, I hope they ask him the same question. 😈

    • I am happy to engage in discussion with those who accept that technology and affluence are a net plus, but who worry about their troubling side effects. Spare me, however, the sensitive souls who deplore technological advance and economic growth over their cell phones on their way to the airport.
