We Need Some Offense

And less Defense.

AP – Bush Declares: ‘We Do Not Torture’

President Bush vigorously defended U.S. interrogation practices in the war on terror Monday and lobbied against a congressional drive to outlaw torture.

“There’s an enemy that lurks and plots and plans and wants to hurt America again,” Bush said. “So you bet we will aggressively pursue them but we will do so under the law.”

He declared, “We do not torture.”

I’m tired of this funk.

Bush is stuck in a defensive response mode right now, and he’s not making the news. He needs to step back into that ‘newsmaker’ role as soon as possible. As Republicans, we need to step up and start making news too. It’s time we take over the podium again.
