Webb continues to exude coldness. For a former military officer there seems to be little gentleman in him. Consider the opening shot of him which had him seated rather coarsely with his right leg crossed over his left knee — was that a clumsy effort to show off the combat boot he was wearing? It was black and shiny, but I couldn’t tell if it was an actual boot. If it was, he had a political purpose to being seated that way. Otherwise, he just came across as oafish.
His opening showed the risk one takes on taping a response before the actual State of the Union speech was delivered. He suggested that the President had stressed “addressing such domestic priorities as restoring the vitality of New Orleans.” But Bush never mentioned New Orleans or Katrina or the Gulf Coast.
Finally, I wish Webb had described how the U.S. will fight the war on terror once it’s out of Iraq. How do we know that it would come down to what might be called the same difference?
