Howard Dean to the Rescue...

Today, President Bush argued that Democrats have a "softer side" when it comes to fighting terrorism.

Howard Dean, chair of the Democratic National Committee, responded to the president's boast that his party has more staying power by saying: "What's softer than giving up the hunt for Osama bin Laden and ignoring the 16 intelligence agencies who told him that the war in Iraq is making us less safe at home and around the world? It's time for the truth. All the tough talk in the world cannot hide the fact that President Bush and his GOP Congress's bad decisions have hurt America's security."

Indeed, we agree with Howard Dean, though it would certainly appear as if Republicans have a much harder, and stiffer approach; at least, from reading Rep. Foley's e-mails. Clearly, nobody can ever accuse this administration of having a flaccid foreign policy. In fact, if nothing else, the past six years with Bush, Cheney, and Rummy at the helm have shown that even the defense department is capable of overdosing on Viagra.
