Interesting story here on NRO, in which President Bush sat down with writers and editors from the National Review for an interview. Putting aside the ridiculous loyalty to the idea of Harriet Myers as a Supreme Court Justice, the President said about what I'd hope he'd say, and I agree with him on the content.
I really liked his discussion of "connecting the dots". Lots of criticism came his ( and Bill Clinton's) way for "not connecting the dots" of AQ growth in the 90's and the activities leading up to 9-11. The country is viciously attacked--so he puts forward an apparatus that actually begins to give us the ability to connect dots...and he is attacked. His reminder to us of what it was like after 9-11 is important; I can't even imagine the pressure and importance of the decisions that were being made in the White House at that point.
