("We are ready for the greatest achievements in the history of freedom." -- President Bush, 1/20/05)
and with Levin batting behind him, they both kept on hitting the ball out of the park today.
If we get hit again, we know whose responsibility it is. It's the Democrats in the Senate and these four Republicans: Larry Craig, Chuck Hagel, Lisa Murkowski and Sununu.
This is another piece in the Democrats' complete meltdown this week--another piece being their admission that they have no plans for the WOT.
They have given Bush a Not My Fault Guarantee. I hope there will never be another attack, and if there is, Bush can say, honestly, "We have to wonder what changed from September 12 to now to let this happen." And FOX, at least, will show that clip of Harry Reid proclaiming "We defeated the Patriot Act today!" to applause.

(Warning: Adult language, but great message: http://foamy.libertech.net/noxmas.swf)
All members of the Court joined in rejecting the government's argument that the Bill of Rights simply did not apply in wartime. The majority opinion contains a somewhat rhetorical passage for which it is justly famous:
The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and in peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times, and under all circumstances. No doctrine, involving more pernicious consequences, was ever invented by the wit of man than that any of its provisions can be suspended during any of the great exigencies of government. Such a doctrine leads directly to anarchy or despotism, but the theory of necessity on which it is based is false; for the government, within the Constitution, has all the powers granted to it, which are necessary to preserve its existence; as has been happily proved by the result of the great effort to throw off its just authority.

Face it folks, this war will be a lot more interesting when 2-3 million New Yorkers are littering the streets NYC. Be great for ratings. Kids and grandkids? The NYT has already given the it's "P*ss on the kid$" blessing. It's really gonna be a lota fun you know. You can bet the NYT feels it is entirely justified in it's attempts to help the enemy destroy this nation. Bet on it.

...All of you out there listening, how many of you think we go to war to protect civil liberties? When is the last time you heard a president declare war on the basis that we gotta go protect our civil liberties? I can't think of one, and I have a fertile memory, my friends....
You worthless assclown, our nation was born in a war to protect our civil liberties.
George Washington ring a bell?
...Our civil liberties are worthless if we are dead!...
Ben Franklin spits on you.
And so do I.
Why are your medical records so damned private if you've got nothing to hide?
Oh, and if we're at war, why are the borders wide open?
We go to war for Civil Liberties? I thought it was to protect our precious bodily fluids? Lord knows we don't want them impurified.

During the Civil War, there was a group called the Copperheads. Now, the Copperheads have a modern equivalent today, the peace movement of the Democratic Party, or basically the Democratic Party. They were called the Copperheads back then.
It comforts me to know that America successfully dealt with traitorous factions during previous wars.

RUSH: Russert, yesterday, the Meet the Press show today, can't get off of Nixon. He can't get off of Watergate. Because that's the mode; that's the template: Bush is Nixon. This is Watergate. The war is Vietnam -- and they're not going to stop until they convince the American people of this.
Fortunately America's enemies, both foreign and domestic, make the mistake of fighting the last war. G-d willing the Left's strategy of casting the WoT as yet another Vietnam will prove as ineffective as the French Maginot Line during WWII.
