Tim Russert's Contribution to the Nation

I watched Senator John Kerry's interview with Tim Russert on Meet the Press this morning. Senator Kerry convinced me that, without a doubt, he is not qualified to be president of this great country. It's not worth going over the details of Senator Kerry's waffling, weakness, wavering, and outright mendacity.

But I will note one thing in response to Senator Kerry's claim that September 11th was our December 7th. Even though Senator Kerry was born in 1943 and I was born in 1959, I still think that September 11th (2001) was our September 11th, not our December 7th (1941). After all, December 7th already was our December 7th. And as long as Senator Kerry wants to conflate the two, considering how the US responded to December 7th from 1941 - 1945, I think the US has been remarkably restrained in its response to September 11th the last two years, don't you?

Could it be that the Dems are trying to downplay September 11th? By linking it to Pearl Harbor, they in effect try to relegate it to "old history": let's forget how a Republican leader rallied the country and has been successfully waging war against the terrorists.
