Never saw an Amendment he couldn't break

Well he's already pretty well trashed the Fourth, so why not destroy the First Amendment as well? Our president has taken to threatening his fellow Americans for expressing opposing views. He seems to think under the Imperial War Presidency he should be able to dictate the terms of the public discourse.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 10 - President Bush issued an unusually stark warning to Democrats today about how to conduct the debate on Iraq as midterm elections approach, declaring that Americans know the difference "between honest critics" and those "who claim that we acted in Iraq because of oil, or because of Israel, or because we misled the American people."
Around here we call those people thinking and informed citizens who insist on accountability from our government. But George doesn't stop there.
Mr. Bush said Americans should insist on a debate "that brings credit to our democracy, not comfort to our adversaries."
You read that right. He's accusing anyone who doesn't follow his rules of debate of commiting treason. But maybe he's onto something here. Perhaps we could bring a countercharge that it's his bumbling in Iraq that has brought aid and comfort to the enemy and is therefore treasonous in its ineptitude.

Heretik saw the speech and runs down the lowlights.

just curious:

which democracy is he wanting to bring credit to, that of the american people or of the bush administration?

and which adversaries is he concerned will be comforted, osama, iraqi insurgents, terrorists, or the disgruntled, dissenting segment of the u.s. population?

Beats me dryle. I don't think he knows what he means, he just learns his lines and repeats the propaganda, over and over and over again.
