My complaints against George W. Bush were the usual ones. He lost the popular vote, he mangles the English language, he's incurious about the world, and he's just too conservative.
The author loses me right here - any credibility gets tossed from the window. Anyone 'curious' about their own country (instead of the world) should know that the president is elected by the electoral college. Second, the fact that one is not a smooth talker or articuale speaker isn't that important to someone who is wise enough to know that stuff is icing, and the real matter is the cake. Curiosity about the world? That's unfair to say - it's unclear what level of curiosity the author would fine acceptable.
At the very least, a lack of interest isn't a bad thing. I'm not interested in visiting large portions of the world - I don't think that makes a person particulary bad in any way.
And Dubya's too conservative? Gee...I can't figure that one out. He is a centrist Republican at best, much like his dad.

When the campaign gets into full swing, the Republicans should assemble a bunch of these "Bush is the enemy" quotes into an ad, and then show footage of the Twin Towers in flames. Then a voice-over would say something like, "Do you agree with the Democrats that President Bush is a bigger threat to America than terrorism? Or do you support the President's efforts to fight back against those who would destroy us? You have a choice in November."

"What we need is an implicit understanding that despite our disagreements we are on the same side. Because we are on the same side. Murderous fanatics are trying to kill us. Save the talk of "enemies" and "evil" for them."
This guy has no clue does he. Obviously he is incapable of seeing the implacable evil that he associates himself with. They let the entire world see what they are made of at the Wellstone funeral, and in the 2000 election, I guess this guy didn't get it.
We are not on the same side any longer, we are at the threshold of civil war against the enemy within. To equate the moral stance that Tom DeLay took against the war in the Balkins, a man that had the moral insight to know we had entered this war on the wrong side, with radical muslims and against our allies to appease France, with the obstructionism and treason that demoncrats are committing against, not only Bush, but the citizens of the United States as they make everything a partisan traitorous issue, means that this man's moral equivalency has finally gotten the best of him. He is not capable of discerning between good and evil, right and wrong.
It is all a game to them, one they must win even to the point of risking the destruction of the nation. They cannot even grasp the idea that DeLay took that action because of a real moral stand and was not playing politics. I despise them, we cannot survive with them in our midsts.
It's a Democratic party cliché now that America needs allies in the Terror War. Of course this is true. We really do need the help of our friends, especially our allies in NATO.
Translation: France, Germany, Belgium aren't on Board.

|Dissent is the responsibility of the opposition. But this responsibility must be wielded responsibly. Those who argued that regime-change in Iraq would make us more vulnerable to terrorism were misguided, in my view, but were sincerely trying to help. The same goes for those who say we need to send in more troops. Some responsible critics supported the war, while others did not. What unites them is the hope that we'll win. That's the sort of opposition we need.
This is true of both inter and intra-party conflict.
