We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

President Bush said in a speech on Tuesday critics of the war could be giving aid and comfort to our enemies and without directly saying it, suggesting opposing political leaders' behavior was treasonous. This is of course ludicrous. The Democrats and other critics of the administration can['t help it that Bush and his cronies have been incompetent at every turn. Here's a quote from the AP Story:
He said he welcomed "honest critics" who question the way the war is being conducted and the "loyal opposition" that points out what is wrong with his administration's approach.
You know... it's odd. This whole issue makes me recall a quote from a book. A German psychologist was allowed to visit with various prisoners on trial during the Nuremburg trials. ONe he spent time with was Hermann Goering, Nazi Reichsmarshal and Luftwaffe Chief. The psychologist, Gustave Gilbert kept his notes and later published them. Here's a short excerpt I believe may pertain to this situation. This is part of a conversation between the good doctor and Goering, who does most of the talkin:
We got around to the subject of war again and I said that, contrary to his attitude, I did not think that the common people are very thankful for leaders who bring them war and destruction.
This is a rather long post but it's all rather frightening really. It's ashame Bush didn't read his history. He might have known some of this. But then again, his grandfather Prescott probably new Goering anyway.
