Bush Backing Barack?

President Bush’s speech criticizing Senator Obama in front of the Israeli Knesset yesterday knocked Senator Clinton completely out of the news cycle when she desperately needs to be dominating it.

The President’s focus on Obama, rather than Clinton, made it feel as if the Democratic nomination race was over, at a time when Clinton desperately needs to show that race aint over yet.

The resulting Bush-Obama debate put Obama on a presidential plane.

The food fight put Obama in the enviable position of publicly battling W, bringing a “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” vibe to the remaining Democratic primaries.

The Bush attack largely eclipsed Senator McCain’s much hyped “vision speech.”

And the Bush-McCain tag team act further linked Obama’s General Election opponent with the most unpopular President in a quarter century.

Could it be that W has joined the Obama cult too?
