A Republican expresses his misgivings…

May 3, 2008

…unfortunately about eight years too late.

“Several times, the President went out of his way to remind me that he
was the Commander in Chief. You don’t have to keep telling me that, I
thought. I know who you are. Like others, I have been around people who
are good at wielding power. They never have to tell you they are in
charge. They just are, and you know it. What I saw and heard that day
really unsettled me. I’m the Commander in Chief… I’m the President…
I’m the Commander in Chief… It was unpresidential.”
