LARRY KUDLOW ON THE ROPE-A-DOPE: Writing in The Washington Times, Kudlow keeps up the rope-a-dope theme, comparing Bush’s at times seemingly incoherent foreign policy to not just Eisenhower’s, but George Washington’s as well:

While events swirled about him and the world, the first president of the fledgling republic seemed weak and uncertain, buffeted by contradictory opinions, but after the clouds and rhetoric parted, he looked masterful. It was clear he had kept his head and the peace.

When the dust settles in the Middle East, I certainly hope we’ll say the same thing about Bush.
