Lieberman: Americans are Undermining Bush's Credibility
Via Atrios. Joe Lieberman, December 7:
It’s time for Democrats who distrust President Bush to acknowledge that he will be the commander in chief for three more critical years and that in matters of war we undermine presidential credibility at our nation’s peril.
Lieberman is right. A president with no credibility does imperil our nation.
Every day the President lies to our faces about Iraq and the "War on Terror." He knows he's lying. We know he's lying. He knows we know he's lying. The world knows he's lying.
But we're responsible for undermining his credibility?
If we nod our heads in unison, march in lockstep with the lies and propaganda, then we undermine our nation's credibility. We show the world that we, as a whole, are corrupted and wrong, not just under the temporary control of a corrupted leadership that we are doing all, short of a revolution or coup, in our power to curb and change.
