President Bush missed the boat again, at the first hint that things were amiss at Walter Reed Hospital. He should have instructed Cheney, as vice president, to hustle over and start removing people and taking names.
Instead, the president flies off to visit several small countries, where we are about as welcome as the plague, and leaves an appointed committee to look into the matter, headed by Bob Dole, a nice enough gentleman, but who is as old as I am and should be at home by a warm fire; we are both World War II people.
When we send our young men and women to fight an ill-advised war, it should be of the highest priority if they return needing medical attention. Our Commander in Chief has the responsibility to see that they get the best attention available.
Not meeting with the press, pronto, and letting America know he was all over the problem will do nothing to enhance his popularity, when Lord knows he needs all the help he can get now.
