"What is the point of this? Abraham Lincoln was questioned more than anyone else maybe in the history of the country during the Civil War. So was Johnson during Vietnam, as well as the Continental Congree during the Revolution. It is the nature of democracy to question its leaders at any time we see fit. That's what makes us a democracy."
irish, I agree one-hundred percent.
Further, the abuse that Lincoln took makes the democratic crap look very tame.
HOWEVER, mass media being what it is in 2005, makes it very important to the war effort to be careful to report the full story.
Many of us in the Right are dismayed when the al qaeda's number two sends out a memo stating that the "American media will undercut the war effort."
THEY ARE COUNTING ON THE MEDIA TO DESTROY MORALE!!!
We get pissed when stories similar to the one I posted are the ONLY COVERAGE AVAILABLE.
If my democratic pals want to play Monday Morning quarterback with the TACTICS involved in Iraq, let's do it.
However, when horseshit like "bush lied, it's all about halliburton, oil is the only reason, the "insurgents" are winning" is repeated ad nausem by a bunch of hypocrites, count on us to slam you. In the middle of the war, the LEAST we can do is not give comfort to the enemy.
