WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush denounced some Democratic critics of the Iraq war as irresponsible on Tuesday and he wanted an election-year debate that "brings credit to our democracy, not comfort to our adversaries"

In a speech, Bush made clear he was girding for battle with Democrats in the run-up to the mid-term congressional election in November, when he will try to keep the U.S. Congress in the hands of his Republican Party amid American doubts about his Iraq policy.

"There is a difference between responsible and irresponsible debate and it's even more important to conduct this debate responsibly when American troops are risking their lives overseas," Bush told the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

The president predicted more tough fighting and more sacrifice ahead in Iraq in 2006 but said he believed progress will be made against the insurgency and on the Iraqi political process and reconstruction.

He also urged all governments to follow through on promised aid to Iraq, saying $13 billion had been pledged but not all of it delivered to date.

He added, "So I ask all Americans to hold their elected leaders to account and demand a debate that brings credit to our democracy, not comfort to our adversaries."
What a lame tactic. By playing along with this request, one is allowing our president to set the rules. (oopsy, I mean my president)

King George II almost gives me a more severe dose of the sh1ts then our Dear Leader.
Democracy is the name of Americas game and as the First amendant says 'Freedom of Speech'.
I do not beleive his reasons for Gulf War 2, from He tried to kill my Daddy to Regime change to Installing Democracy or whatever todays Battle cry is.
Sadam is/was evil but please don't tell me that KG II is not evil or if he is not truely evil then the Puppetmasters who contol him certinly are.

If events of the past few years are anything to go by, you were probably right the first time. :twisted:

"Don't mention the war." As if...

It should be interpreted as, "if you question me, as your Commander in Chief, the terrrrrists win. Respect my authoritahhhh!"
