Liberals understand terrorism; does Bush?

Yet another (lonely) member of the Indiana reality-based community! Below is a letter to the editor of today's Indianapolis Star:
Why do conservatives constantly bludgeon the left about not understanding terrorism? The premise that liberals do not comprehend terrorism is both offensive and flawed. Of course, liberals understand how terrible terrorism is. Liberals have better ideas for fighting terrorism than conservatives. It is interesting to note that New York, the state most affected by terrorism on 9/11, preferred John Kerry's strategy to combating terrorism by a large margin in the presidential race.

Why did President Bush resist forming a 9/11 commission and then under-fund and stonewall it once it was formed? Could 9/11 have been prevented if he had been more pro-active about terrorism? How serious is Bush about catching Osama bin Laden?
