I have a love-hate relationship with politics. It’s stuff like this that makes me hate politics:
SUGAR LAND, Tex., Oct. 30 — President Bush said terrorists will win if Democrats win and impose their policies on Iraq, as he and Vice President Cheney escalated their rhetoric Monday in an effort to turn out Republican voters in next week’s midterm elections. (via Washington Post)
Regardless of where you stand on the political spectrum, that’s an outrageous statement to make. In essence, Bush is accusing the democrats of being in alliance with terrorists. I don’t care how different their plans are from his, but I’m confident that the democrats are not in alliance with terrorists. I’m not going to declare that the democrats are saints, but I’m not surprised that democrats are on the verge of taking over congress.
I’d like to think that most people can see through shoddy political rhetoric. My brain hurts.
