America First

Quote from a NYT article today:

But the aid effort that has now begun presents Mr. Bush with an opportunity to
battle, with action rather than just words, the perception that took root in his first four years in office that he is all about America first.
I am all behind getting aid to the folks who are suffering as a result of the tsunamis, but let's get one thing straight: I don't just want the perception that our President is all about America first, I want that to be reality.

The Preisident of the United States should be about America first. Not America only, but certainly America first. That is his job. Likewise, French leaders (for example) should be about France first. It is absurd to suggest otherwise.

Plus, the author is really saying little here except: Liberals don't like Bush but if he does what they want here I will think less poorly of him. How is that news? Isn't that true of all policies always.
