Maureen Dowd Wants George W. Bush To Stand Up And Be Heard

I swear I just saw pigs fly. Right outside my window. Flew over the whole blogosphere and across the country. Really!!!!

I would have said the day Maureen Dowd claimed George W. Bush was better or more principled about anything than Barack Obama is, would be the day pigs flew.

Well, she did and she does.

The war against the terrorists is not a war against Islam. In fact, you can’t have an effective war against the terrorists if it is a war on Islam.

George W. Bush understood this. And it is odd to see Barack Obama less clear about this matter than his predecessor. It’s time for W. to weigh in.

This — along with immigration reform and AIDS in Africa — was one of his points of light. As the man who twice went to war in the Muslim world, he has something of an obligation to add his anti-Islamophobia to this mosque madness. W. needs to get his bullhorn back out.

Look out your window, you might catch sight of those flying pigs.
