W. Stands for "Weak"
Ever wonder why the president's steely-eyed determination to pre-emptively attack challenges to America doesn't extend to non-defense issues? Looks like Tony Blair has wondered that too, as reflected in a very clever speech on global climate change that uses the same calculus of risk applied to the decision to invade Iraq. He doesn't mention Bush by name, but makes a pretty good indirect case that W. is a weasely, flip-flopping defeatist who's made the U.S. the France of environmental policy. Today's New Dem Daily connects the dots and draws the obvious conclusions.
