Bush Calls Out His Revisionist War Critics.
Today, the President finally called out his critics on Iraq (underlining mine):
And our debate at home must also be fair-minded. One of the hallmarks of a free society and what makes our country strong is that our political leaders can discuss their differences openly, even in times of war. When I made the decision to remove Saddam Hussein from power, Congress approved it with strong bipartisan support. I also recognize that some of our fellow citizens and elected officials didn't support the liberation of Iraq. And that is their right, and I respect it. As President and Commander-in-Chief, I accept the responsibilities, and the criticisms, and the consequences that come with such a solemn decision.
Read the entire speech here.
The Political Teen has the video.
President Bush now needs to go on the offensive on the economy, as well. It's absurd that so many people could view this booming economy and call it a recession.

The sad thing is that more and more the media's sound byte style is getting proped up along with the trend of interperating what the news means for us. It's a danger that I previously only knew existing in the Church, when scripture was removed from context and interprated for the people. These efforts to control understanding and context make for a society where those who feel responsible for knowing the truth have to search harder and wider for data to compile in order to form their own opinions. It is also help form a society of blinded sheep, who are unaware of the dangers around them and don't know how to prepare accordingly.
They say those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. What happens to those whose learned history is distorted?

It was fun to watch Ted Kennedy respond as Wolfe Blitzer back him into a mere whimper of defense by reading him his own words speaking about the dangers of WMD in Saddam's hands.

" It's a danger that I previously only knew existing in the Church, when scripture was removed from context and interprated for the people."
If God could guide individual reading, don't you suppose He could have guided the very Church He founded and instructed to tell (write) His message.

Good points, but screw the economy. People always are bearish on the economy -- even as they go on buying sprees.
