Bush Urges Democrats To Stand Up And Fight

From the NY Times's coverage of President Bush's recent press conference:

"I did notice that nobody from the Democratic Party has actually stood up and called for getting rid of the terrorist surveillance program," Mr. Bush said. He added, in a formulation similar to his campaign speeches portraying Democrats as soft on terrorism, that "they ought to stand up and say the tools we're using to protect the American people shouldn't be used."

This brings to nearly two the number of times that I have agreed with something that Bush has said.

W's remarks are not entirely true. I suspect someone with Lexis/Nexis access could quickly offer some counterexamples. But the overall sense is correct, and I have no doubt that there is a wide perception of the minority party in just this light.

Time to get up off the mat, Dems. The bully is calling you out.
