Off the Cuff

As was widely noted a couple of weeks ago, President Bush's comments about how some believe Arabs can't be democratic is a veiled accusation of racism against his opponents. With that in mind, I'd like to note a couple of the President's immediate reactions to things:

1.) When those three harmless Muslim med students in Florida were turned in by a woman who suspected them of terrorism, Bush praised the woman.

2.) With regard to John Walker Lindh, who was actually working with the Taliban, Bush called him a "poor young man" or some such thing before changing his tone.

This is not enough to make a pattern of anything, and there are differences between the two cases. But I'm like throwing out some interesting juxtapositions that suggest President Bush may not be so perfect on this issue after all.
