Kiren Chetry had Duncan Hunter on CNN’s morning show today to talk about Libby’s commutation. Instead of dumping on Bush for not pardoning Libby as was clearly expected by CNN, Hunter zeroed in on the issue of pardons for the two Border Patrol agents who are imprisoned unjustly for shooting a drug smuggler in the butt on the Mexican border. That took the wind out of the sails of Chetry...a brilliant job of high-jacking the interview that one rarely sees GOP candidates do. Kudos to Hunter!
On the subject of the "anti-Bush" -- President Bush has got a lot right (at one time or another). He cut taxes, he put excellent people on the Supreme Court, and Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Lebanon are all less of a threat to us now than they were. To run as an "anti-Bush" a candidate would have to express unhappiness with some of that. I don't see it.
