Nothing is that simple, except to a simpleton. Unfortunately, we have one in the White House.....
....and then there is his evil Dick.
Glenn Greenwald - Salon:
In virtually every speech and interview he has given, George Bush has made the same argument -- that we are in an epic battle in defense of Good against Evil and therefore must take every step possible to triumph. In large part, that is the mentality that has led to the excesses and abuses of the last six years.
In response to this morning's Salon excerpt, there are numerous comments objecting to (what is perceived to be) my argument, all of which are based on the assertion that George Bush does not sincerely believe in these moralistic premises, that his claimed evangelical beliefs are a sham, and that 'Good versus Evil' moralism is merely a rhetorical device to manipulate support for his policies.
