The primary point of President Bush’s lengthy, conversational address Monday to a friendly audience at Kansas State University seemed to be that if more Americans understood “there’s still an enemy which lurks out there,” fewer Americans in Congress and otherwise would question his administration’s no-holds-barred prosecution of the war on terrorism and the war in Iraq, including warrantless electronic eavesdropping on Americans.
One regrettable impression left by the speech, part of the Landon Lecture series, was that Bush is having to spend so much time these days justifying his past decisions. Starting with next week’s State of the Union address, he needs to get specific on his vision for the rest of his second term.
