There he goes again.

The President says:

“America did not ask for this war, and every American wishes it were over,” Bush said. “The war is not over — and it will not be over until either we or the extremists emerge victorious.”

But, Mr. President, you've squandered our precious capital with the diversion in Iraq. Conflating Saddam Hussein's repressive regime with the terrorists that attacked civilization has been a costly mistake for America.

So is the misguided notion that America is in a fight to the death with the terrorists who DID attack civilization, with only one emerging victorious. We should be thankful that the terrorists do NOT have the capability to destroy civilization, but mindful that civilization is capable of destroying itself.

Indeed, patriotic Americans who are aware that the US is a strong nation that should not be distracted and discard its core values have a duty on election day. We've got a Democracy, and it is time to hold the President accountable for squandering the US's precious resources abroad, of human capital, of economic capital, and of diplomatic capital.
