You’re Either With Us or You’re Against Us, Mr. President

Posted by on December 18 at 20:30 PM

It looks to me like you’re against us.

Just as the idea that “it was necessary to destroy the village in order to save it” became the derisive (and accurate) analysis of America’s illogical strategy during the Vietnam War, Bush’s idea that it’s necessary to defile the Constitution in order to protect our Constitutional freedoms is now the bottom line on his War on Terror.

President Bush said it himself in his speech on Saturday when he defended authorizing electronic eavesdropping without first obtaining the required warrants: “This authorization is a vital tool in our war against the terrorists. It is critical to saving American lives…to protect them and their civil liberties. And that is exactly what I will continue to do so long as I’m the president of the United States.”

Know what's weird, Josh? The person with the most cogent arguement against the President on this is...

wait for it...

Former Rep. Bob Barr, Republican(!) of Georgia

Very well put, Josh.

The guy has got to go, perhaps *our* reps will get on it and start litigation. The state of Washington to McDermott, hello?
