I only caught pieces of President Bush's speech on the war on terrorism to the National Endowment for Democracy this morning. But I managed to read the full text here at Atlas Shrugs (a pretty good blog, by the way).
He finally made the effort to articulate that we're at war not with this nebulous thing called "terrorism" but with an actual living, breathing enemy. The trouble is, who's listening?
Certainly not the lefties suffering from what some conservative bloggers like to call "Bush Derangement Syndrome". Those suffering from BDS will call Bush a liar if he says Tiger Woods is a pretty good golfer.
And certainly not the Europeans, whose disdain for Bush, and indeed America, has blinded them to the fact that they've already begun submitting to Islam without even realizing it.
If people around the world don't start waking up to the creeping danger of Islamofascism the job of eradicating it is going to be that much harder.

Just as I thought, a quick but unappetizing walk through a couple of the more hard-core left blogs, notably The Daily Kos and Democratic Underground, reveals their undying hatred for anything Bush, or Republican, or anything based in reality. It's still a war for oil/Halliburton/Israel. Never mind those nice Islamofascists killing people everywhere, they're just misunderstood.
