From another story:

Quote:
Elsewhere, Nashville Mayor Bill Purcell vetoed a bill that would have made English the official language of the city, saying that it would have discouraged President Bush from visiting.

Pathetic rambling from Ed Koch.

"So what do we know with certainty? There are those in Iran, on a significant scale, supplying Iraqi insurgents and terrorists with deadly bombs responsible for killing and injuring 820 American soldiers in the last year. "

Sorry, Ed, but that is a misinformed assumption and not certainty. You see there is some support comming in from Iran most likely not connected to the Iranian government in support of the Shiite militias with whom the Iranians have close ties. Nevermind that the insurgents who have been targeting American soldiers are Sunnis who are fighting this civil war against the Shiites. Those Sunni insurgents are recieving support from elements in Saudi Arabia but there is not much made of that.

Embarassing the president just might make us safer. Embarassing Rumsfeld made our troops safer........

Rumsfeld was caught dead lying to his own troops by the free press (liberal media if you wish to call it that).

Humvee makers dispute Rumsfeld remarks

"The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else."
