Marshall Wittman says Democrats shouldn’t make an issue out of Bush’s criminal wiretaps because he's been keeping us safe.
What we do know is that we have not suffered another attack on the Homeland since 9/11. That is a miraculous fact. And President Bush should be applauded for protecting the country rather than excoriated, to say nothing of impeachment which is on the lips of some Democrats.
I keep a special lucky charm in the car that protects us from werewolf attacks during long, lonely drives on the highway. How do I know it works? We have suffered no werewolf attacks since I put that charm in the car.
Torture, wholesale denial of due process, and illegal wiretaps by the Bush administration have kept America safe from terrorist attacks since 9/11. How do we know they work?
The really sad thing about this line of argumant is that the same people who make it will be the one's who respond to another terrorist attack by demanding more torture, denial of due process, and illegal wiretaps. Sigh.
