A passage to India

While the MSM was obsessing over a hunting accident, reporting on a civil war that isn’t, and recycling stories about Hurricane Katrina (and while David Gregory apparently was getting tipsy), President Bush was producing a diplomatic coup in India. Jay Ambrose, in the Washington Times (link not available), doesn’t overstate matters by much when he writes:

It’s hello India and goodbye Europe as the United seeks out a new partner in world affairs, one that is growing, bold and confident instead of one hiding from the future and in steep decline.

Rich Lowry has more on Bush’s triumph, which even the insufferable Simon Jenkins acknowledges, though he makes the absurd claim that Bush “stumbled into it.”
