The case for Bush

This WapPo article(bugmenot id=physics@physics.com,password=biteme) gives some insight into how this close presidential race is likely to be decided. Excerpt:

And yet, on this overarching "what next" question, Bush is right. He is right that the best defense against terrorism is offense: Given the vast variety of targets from which terrorists can choose, the "homeland security" alternative is hopeless. He is right that preemptive war is a necessary option, and that we won't always know all of the facts about the threats we are preempting. And he is right, however unfashionable it may be to say so, that nation-building can be successful.

Thanks to Powerline for the link.

Update: The Alpha Patriot correctly mentions in the comments that the article's author is a real, honest to God liberal. He's not what you'd consider one of Bush's core supporters. If there are more like him, Kerry could be in trouble.

Update: Alpha Patriot also links to this site. The picture is just too darned funny.

I think the important thing here is that the author is indeed a liberal, usually siding with the Left on these matters.

Good point. I'll update the post.
