SOMETHING STRUCK ME AS ODD ABOUT THE RUSSERT-BUSH INTERVIEW
Errr...why no questions about Pakistan ? Here we have the admission of wide-ranging nuclear proliferation to dangerous rogue states and not a single question posed to the President of the United States. Isn't that at least kind of important ???
Yes, Bush did a mediocre job on Meet The Press but the fact remains that the next president will have to make major strategic decisions regarding the war and the major role played in Islamist terrorism by Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. Bush and the Democratic nominee, presumably Kerry at this juncture, need to be asked " Where will you take us ? What are your top objectives in combatting terrorism?" and in the case of Senator Kerry " Are we at war or not ? ".
What answers will we hear, I wonder. Will such questions even be asked by a press consumed by superficialities, personality and image ?
