The New York Times: “In some of his most combative language yet directed at his critics, Mr. Bush said Americans should insist on a debate ‘that brings credit to our democracy, not comfort to our adversaries.’”
HOW ON EARTH do you have an earnest debate when the war’s supporters label ANY sort of disagreement as unpatriotic at best, treasonous at worst.
There is no debate that those war supporters are willing to have that will ‘… not comfort our adversaries…” in their opinion.
Where/When has this president shown any desire to actually have an honest discussion of how this war was prosecuted???
