Wes Pruden: The terrorists got the words from Pres. George W. Bush today.... "delivered with the bark on...."

Another *****Five Star, must read piece in "Pruden on Politics" today in the washingtontimes, titled "A tough old cuss with a hard head." "The tough old cuss with a hard head would be George W. Bush, of course.

Using the parlance of former baseball-team owner George W. Bush, Pruden explains how so many others want to tell Bush how to finish out his term---and how Barbara-Bush-stubborn GWB is resolved to do it his own way and continue keeping America and all of us safe in the face of terrorism.

Pruden allows that "The toughest thing about managing a team drifting deep into the second division when summer wanes is that everybody has advice for you. Some of it is insincere, most of it is bitter, and all of it is unsolicited. You could ask George W. Bush. It's obvious to just about everybody that on the first day of spring, George W.'s club is on its uppers, with not much down left to go....

But George W. is a stubborn old cuss, tough as a razorback even if he is a Texican, and he's likely to continue doing it his own way. We can all be grateful for his stubborn streak, inherited most likely from his mama, because his single-minded pursuit of evildoers is what has protected us from a reprise of September 11. That's probably why almost nobody showed up for the weekend anti-war rallies, either here or in London or in Europe....

....so what if he was born with a silver spoon and not the golden tongue to thrill the multitudes with silken speech and quotable wit? The terrorists got the word, delivered with the bark on. That's the stuff that starts a late-inning rally."
