“Questioned about the Sheehan protest, White House officials invoked words Bush used after Sept. 11 to stress the importance of current overseas operations.

‘On September 14, 2001, [the president] stood at the National Cathedral and told all of America that this was going to be a very long and difficult war, and that there were going to be some very trying moments, but that because of what happened on 9/11, that we had to view the world in a different way,’ White House spokesman Trent Duffy said.

He added that the Sept. 11 commission had concluded that the nation cannot take any steps backward in its anti-terrorism efforts without risking the terrorists coming ’50 steps closer to our own shores.’ This echoes Bush’s words earlier this week, in which he said any withdrawal from Iraq would ’embolden’ terrorists.”

Gargh!!!! I don’t even know what to say. I’ve lost words. All language has become meaningless. You cannot logically argue with a side that refuses to answer to logic, or even to acknowledge reality. It hurts my brain.
