Barbara at the Mahablog, liveblogging Bush's speech:

Wow — he worked 9/11 into the intro.

Is that a surprise? He probably works 9/11 into foreplay.


UPDATE: I'm looking at the transcript of the speech, and the 9/11 reference comes in the thank-you section right at the outset. It's the seventh sentence in, in the thanks to the midshipmen in the audience. It's followed by eleven more thank-you passages. What I'm trying to point out is that he put 9/11 in the warm-up -- the part that's not really the speech proper. He treats 9/11 the way some eaters treat ketchup -- he slathers it on everything.

Bush loves 9/11. I'm really not sure he regrets that it happened.
