George Bush, today, speaking to Veterans of Foreign Wars:
"The American people know the difference between responsible and irresponsible debate when they see it. They know the difference between honest critics who question the way the war is being prosecuted and partisan critics who claim that we acted in Iraq because of oil, or because of Israel, or because we misled the American people."

If the President hopes not to be criticized for misleading the American people, perhaps his advisors should encourage him to consider avoiding misleading the American people.

"So I ask all Americans to hold their elected leaders to account, and demand a debate that brings credit to our democracy -- not comfort to our adversaries."

Again, if the fact that Bush has misled the American people gives comfort to our adversaries, I fail to see in what way that becomes the responsibility of Bush's critics.
