Bush gives Kerry a rapping in PA

Just finished watching the foreign policy half of Bush's speech in Wilkes Barre (transcript). Here's just one bite to give you an idea of the tack the president is taking:

The senator speaks often about his plan to strengthen America's alliances, but he's got an odd way of doing it. In the middle of the war, he's chosen to insult America's fighting allies by calling them "window dressing" and "the coalition of the coerced and the bribed." The Italians who died in Nasiriyah were not window dressing. They were heroes in the war on terror.

Bush brought his 'A'-game to PA, now he needs to bottle it up and bring it to the debate with Kerry on Friday. If only half of the points Bush made today make it into Friday's debate, he will walk away with a Reaganeque victory. How can the majority of Americans honestly disagree with his overall thesis that:

Senator Kerry assures us that he's the one to win a war he calls a mistake, an error and a diversion. But you can't win a war if you don't believe in fighting. On Iraq, Senator Kerry has a strategy of retreat. I have a strategy of victory.

Mr. President, please, BRING IT ON!
