THREE QUESTIONS....Tim Dunlop notes that President Bush said the following at a campaign stop in Columbus on Thursday:

Committing troops into harm's way is the most difficult decision a president can make. That decision must always be last resort. That decision must be done when our vital interests are at stake, but after we've tried everything else. There must be a compelling national need to put our troops into harm's way. I felt that.

I have a serious question for the right-handed blogosphere: in what way does this differ from what John Kerry says? Do you believe that Bush means it? And how would you feel if Kerry had said it?

OK, OK, that's three questions. But they're nice short ones.
