A history lesson

“On Feb. 8, 2004, George W. Bush proudly proclaimed to Tim Russert on ‘Meet the Press,’ ‘I am a war president.’ Like an 8-year-old playing with toy soldiers, Bush, an Air National Guard dropout, looked at war with vicarious enthusiasm. Contrast the attitude of the nation’s ‘peace presidents’ – supreme commanders who led the nation to victory in the greatest wars the country faced: men who had experienced the grim reality of battle and wanted no part of it.”
The Peace Presidents, Donkey o.d., May 9, 2007
