Do Not Question Us
From Rumsfeld's rally...I mean speech...held before the American Legion: "And that is important in any long struggle or long war, where any kind of moral or intellectual confusion about who and what is right or wrong, can weaken the ability of free societies to persevere."
Did he really say that? As long as there is a war on terror we are not allowed to question his actions? Wow. He can go straight to hell.
Don't believe what you read and see
This is too rich: "The good news is that most Americans, though understandably influenced by what they see and read, have good inner gyroscopes. They have good center of gravity. So, I’m confident that over time they will evaluate and reflect on what is happening in this struggle and come to wise conclusions about it."
So yeah, don't read the news or watch reports on the tube. Use your "inner gyroscope" just like our genius president.
One last jab
"...we have learned the lessons of history, of the folly of trying to turn a blind eye to danger." I hope he at least has learned that lesson since he and his cohorts were in charge during the largest terror attack in the history of our country. That's a heck of a snow job, Rummy.
I'll allow Keith Olberman to summarize Rumsfeld's speech: "The man who sees absolutes, where all other men see nuances and shades of meaning, is either a prophet, or a quack." Found that via Tom Tomorrow.
