NY Times Columnist Criticizes President Bush for Exercising

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd wrote a column today criticizing President Bush for devoting some of his time to fitness. Her view is that The President should spend more time trying to track down Osama bin Laden and less on maintaining his health:

I don't know enough about what the president is up to on Iraq. But I know too much about what the president is up to on a run.... So the bad news is: we haven't caught Osama. The good news is: W.'s times have improved.

Dowd is the kind of ultra-partisan who probably mentioned President Clinton's fondness for jogging favorably in one of her columns early in his presidency. But, Bush's greater devotion to the same sport is an opportunity to take cheap rhetorical shots at him.

The only non-critical reason to mention this column is that it points out that President Bush has given an exclusive interview to RunnersWorld Magazine, and that issue will be on the newsstands on September 9.
