Bush Running Wrong Way
Saletan's Slate piece, comparing Bush's national security strategy to Roy Riegels, a college football player that scored a touchdown for his opponent's teams, provides a nice bit of rhetoric. The problem is that it doesn't go far enough.
Defense is part of the game, but Bush refuses to put them on the field. He has left glaring holes in homeland security, most significantly port security, and he has subcontracted our pass rush out to Pakistan.
