President Bush’s “uniter” talk has gotten a revival this year, most recently at his first visit to a Democratic congressional retreat since 2001. Speaking to the 200 lawmakers in Virginia on Saturday, Bush said, “These are tough times, but there’s no doubt in my mind that you want to secure this homeland as much as I do.” He also got a laugh by atoning for his reference to “the Democrat majority” in the State of the Union speech. “I have been accused of occasionally mangling the English language. And so I appreciate you inviting the head of the Republic Party.” The collegiality seems a little late, but it can’t hurt.
