After he notes some facts about the latest manufactured issue (courtesy of the NYT) Hube notes:
...[Facts] won't stop Congressional Democrats -- even those who were briefed about the program (like Harry Reid) -- from blasting Bush and co. 'Cause that's what they do, after all. And not much else. Have a plan for Iraq? We'll get back to you. Have a plan to fight terrorists? We'll get back to you. Have a plan for criticizing President Bush? Here's a mountain of papers full of ideas.(Colossus)
As one British journalist noted, if Bush is the dictator that the American Left makes him out to be and is engaging in silencing all his critics then how are so many Bush haters allowed to write so much partisan drivel? That seems to be what it is in general, drivel. The opposition party does not have to be this way, it's as if they believe that Americans will not vote for them unless they believe that Bush is a liar, a madman and a tyrant. Americans might actually vote for them if they had a vision as to bringing the war in Iraq to a resolution but instead they have Dean saying that we cannot succeed. You have to wonder what they're thinking. When has anyone ever won any election based on that sort of position, even with the feverish support of the Old Press?
