At a recent “town hall” appearance (the type where never is heard a discouraging word), W made the following remark.

You know, when I was growing up, or other baby boomers here were growing up, we felt safe because we had these vast oceans that could protect us from harm’s way. September the 11th changed all that.


The president must have grown up in a different universe. As a card carrying boomer, I remember well decades of our “leaders” telling scary stories of nuclear missiles pointed at us by godless commies way across the ocean.

The only thing that’s changed is the the bogey man against whom daddy is going to protect us.

bush, scary stuff
