Stupid, stupid, stupid. I'm beginning to suspect Bush might actually be somewhat retarded.
...but his focus is on the main concern expressed by the social conservatives - national security.
Yet Bush has nothing on Bill Frist in the public moron department. Please, someone explain to me how being concerned about national security makes one a social conservative.
"When we discuss this debate, it must be done in a civil way,"
This one is pretty opaque to me, but I suspect it might be Bush's version of, "Can't we all just get along?"
"It must be done in a way that brings dignity to the process. It must be done in a way that doesn't pit people against another."
Ok, I have this one. Translation: "Don't you dare use any logic or reason on me, because I can't handle it and I'll embarrass myself. And you should just agree with me anyway. I'm the President, don't you know?"
