    The reason he will be difficult to unseat in November—no matter what his approval ratings are in the summer—is that his opponents operate out of the moral certainty that he is the bad guy and needs to be replaced, while he operates out of the moral certainty that terrorists are the bad guys and need to be defeated.

    so true. To a sane human being, terrorists are a force of evil in today world... in the leftists mind, GW Bush is the force of evil. Clearly, people who think this way have never actually been a victim of evil people. People who survived Auschwitz or the Gulag or 9-11 know what real evil is and GW ain't it no matter what you think of his various legislative efforts.

    [ QUOTE ]
    Let's not flatter ourselves: If we do not find it within ourselves to identify the terrorism inspired by radical Islam as an unequivocal evil—and to pronounce ourselves morally superior to it—then we have lost the ability to identify any evil at all, and our democracy is not only diminished, it dissolves into the meaninglessness of privilege.

    its official.. this guy isn't a leftist... if he ever was, I guarentee the extreme left will disown him as soon as they read the quote above. Of course, its 100% accurate. Leaders with a moral compass are exactly what you need in time of war. Churchill, Lincoln etc. You need a guy who can recognize the evil of their time, point it out to others, and lead people in a tireless effort to defeat it. Churchill wasn't going to give up no matter how grave things became... and when the battle is pitched, thats exactly the guy you need.

    anyway, the guy who wrote this article is intellectually honest, in spite of his political tendancies. To me, thats pretty impressive for a liberal.
