|Bush loses. I guess that scaring us all with threats of terrorism just isn't enough anymore, he now has resorted to declaring that his opposition are nazi-sympethizers.
My favorite line from the article is "History teaches us that underestimating the words of evil, ambitious men is a terrible mistake." Does he not consider the fact that he is the one trying to lead the country in war? Or that he is closer to being a second Hitler than any of the terrorists are? Obviously, I can't compare him to Hitler without being accused of violating Godwin's Law myself. However, I don't do it with the intent of demonizing him or as empty hyperbole, I honestly think it's a valid comparison.
From the beginning of his presidency, he has been playing on the fears and xenophobia of the American people to drive them deeper into one conflict after the other. He refuses to acknowledge that he may have been wrong, and instead pushes harder. He has consistently chipped away at our privacy and our constitutional rights. We are coming closer than ever to a police state, not because of the worthless congress, but because we have allowed ourselves to be led by fear and propoganda.
In the 2000 debate, Bush said "I would be very careful about using our troops as nation builders." I guess we can read that now and understand that he meant to very carefully use our troops as nation builders.
