Blinded by Outrage

The big problem with Bush hatred is that it it effects people's ability to sit back for a moment and evaluate information.

Liberals in NZ have been caught out yet again by their over eagerness to demonize Bush with the issue of Paul O'Neill's criticism of Bush. Here is what O'Neill is saying about how what he has said is being misconstrued:

"People are trying to say that I said the president was planning war in Iraq early in the administration. Actually there was a continuation of work that had been going on in the Clinton administration with the notion that there needed to be a regime change in Iraq."

Yet again there is the kernel of a reasonable argument here but yet again liberals have smothered it in moral outrage. They should remember that eventually the wolf did turn up but nobody was listening.
