......Michael Novak in AEI:

"What I do want to argue is that, after Washington and Lincoln, Bush is the bravest of our presidents. He has faced the most intense fire, hatred, contempt, heavily moneyed and bitterly acidic partisan opposition, underhandedness, betrayal, of any president in the last hundred years. He has faced hostility over a longer time, in possibly the most dangerous period of international warfare in our national history. He has remained constant, firm, decided, and generous (to a fault) with his opponents. "

Stark contrast to this Yes! Weekly editorial which places President Bush's mental clarity on equal footing with that of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:

"From his first day in office forward, Bush has been exhibiting a scary messiah streak, although Christians are becoming increasingly divided about the president’s authenticity as a professing member of the faith. All we can say to Bush and his neocon circle is, 'That nagging little voice of caution you suppressed during the run-up to Iraq — now is not the time to ignore it.'

'The problem is that the new president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, appears to be a little unhinged himself, judging by his call to have Israel 'wiped off the map.'”
