Someone put this in a time capsule, quick.
I had the opportunity this afternoon to be part of a relatively small
group who heard President Bush talk, extemporaneously, for around forty
minutes. It was an absolutely riveting experience….
His persona is very much that of the big brother. Above all, he
was impassioned. I have never seen a politician speak so evidently from
the heart, about big issues–freedom, most of all….
He is, of course, miles above his mean-spirited liberal critics. More
than that, he clearly derives real joy from the opportunity to serve as
President and to participate in the great pageant of American history.
(No, Stephen Colbert was not guest blogging at Power Line.) For more on the great pageant of American history, see Pfaff, William, “Clash of Cultures: Globalization & the March of Western Values.”
