So .. as far as you're concerned, it's Bush's fault ..??
And .. does he have control of what the NYT or the WP print ..??
How many speeches has the President now given about the NSA program - how many polls have been taken showing the American public believes the NSA program is necessary and not "domestic spying".
However, just the other day at a speech in NC, the President was bombarded by some idiot still saying the NSA was illegal.
Maybe WE are the ones who need to do more. Maybe WE need to start bombarding our friends and relatives with all the good information we get here on FR ..?? Hmmmmm??
I did question his failure to defend against the lies more aggressively, which he did fail to do (and actually helped to perpetuate).
You addressed the NSA program, but not the WMD program. Perhaps you didn't have anything to address the WMD failure, so you changed the subject.
But, your point did lead me to another observation, so thank-you for bringing it up.
Yes, Bush failed to counter the "No WMD" lies. However, his willingness to confront the "Illegal Spying on Americans" lie head-on may well be evidence that he learned from the previous error.
He has been out there front and center on the NSA issue as you correctly point out. As most Americans aren't concerned with the NSA thing, his efforts to circumvent the Dem's lies this time are working. Most don't learn from ther mistakes. Here, Bush may have.
