Got Your War On?

Over at TAPPED young wonk Yglesias makes a rather obvious but timely observation.

Having won re-election largely on the strength of his national security appeal, he decided to immediately pivot, proclaim the war on terrorism not so important after all, and try to leverage the popularity of his foreign policies into a radical overhaul of the welfare state. It's not what you would call a very serious dedication to the country's security.

We would add snarkily that with the recent spate of memos regarding pre-9/11 warnings of various kinds, this isn't really a pivot. ShrubCo has never and will never take national security seriously.
