Too Stupid

The RNC is rolling out an ad saying that while President Bush is attacking terrorists, “some are attacking him for attacking the terrorists.” CNN ran the ad during Inside Politics, and it has all the makings of a Lifetime movie:

With somber strings playing in the background, the commercial flashes the words “Strong and Principled Leadership” before cutting to Mr. Bush standing before members of Congress. Intended to call out the Democrats for their opposition to Mr. Bush’s military strategy of pre-emptively striking those who pose threats to the nation, the screen flashes “Some call for us to retreat, putting our national security in the hands of others,” then urges viewers to tell Congress “to support the president’s policy of pre-emptive self defense.”

They’ve done it again. Made a powerful argument against something no one has accused him of, and assuming that the American public is too stupid to know the truth.
