Ben Stein on the Iraq war, an example of good political discourse

Remember the post I had a last week about how conservative bloggers like to give context and facts, while liberal bloggers try to scare you into thinking the way that they do? I have another example, and I do have an idea about why this is...I think it may simply result from the power dynamic of American politics right now...conservatives are in power (and thus under constant political attack from the left), while liberals are out of power (and thus want to make you scared of it so you'll vote them back in). Anyway, it is what it is, and Ben Stein describes the Iraq war in a good context, using facts, just like I described last week. He doesn't make any excuses for Rumsfeld or Bush, just describes with facts and context and leaves you to form your own opinion. This is what reasoned political dialogue is all about. No fear, no alarm, just calm context and facts.

And now we know,as anyone with a brain knew from the beginning that this was and is absolute crap,like everything else Stein has ever done!Stein is always making excuses for past mistakes,criminality and lies and still defends his mentor,the Crook,Tricky Dick Nixon? When will the Right ever be right about anything?
