Bush, the Anti-Anti-Bush Candidate

I never quite thought of it this way, but Wretchard over at the Belmont Club makes a good point:

If Kerry was the anti-Bush, Bush was the anti-anti-Bush, the anti-antiWar candidate. The candidate of action as opposed to the candidate of self-recrimination.

Indeed, the peaceniks and blame-yourselfers left me no choice but to vote for Bush. I was not an anti-Kerry voter -- I voted for Bush. He is the best man for the job. But certainly, the "Bush = Hitler" crowd were people I wanted to be far, far away from, both physically and ideologically.

It is a long and eloquent post. Well worth the read, as usual.
