George W. Bush says John Kerry's challenges about US failure to nail Osama bin Laden at Tora Bora reflect "the worst kind of Monday morning quarterbacking."
Note, Bush has been making the first argument for days, but today he apparently added a clause something like this: "especially since bin Laden released a tape today."
Psssst, media: the battle of Tora Bora was in December 2001.
This isn't Monday morning quarterbacking.
This is more like discussing the "curse of the Bambino."
If Bush can campaign as a "war President," then Kerry can legitimately point out that Bush has done a poor job of it.
