Thoughts: The Bush I like

George Bush has been kicking conservatives in the balls for the past few years, but now he is starting to be the President I voted for. If nothing else, I still believe he is a good war time President. Bush is doing a good job forcing Congress to pass the terrorism torture bill.
President Bush prodded Congress to pass two bills that the administration says are essential to fight the war on terrorism and proposes strategies for interrogating and trying enemy combatants.

Bush answered questions at a late-morning news conference in the Rose Garden.

"We will work with members of both parties to get the bills out of congress," Bush said. "We need the legislation because the Supreme Court has recently ruled that military commissions must be specifically authorized by Congress."

The session with reporters comes one day after Republicans led the Senate Armed Services Committee in rejecting Bush's proposal for interrogating and prosecuting terrorism suspects. The dissident group, led by Sen. John Warner, R-Va., said Bush's approach would jeopardize the safety of U.S. troops.

"It's unacceptable to think there's any kind of comparison between the behavior of the United States of America and the action of Islamic extremists who kill innocent women and children to achieve an objective," said Bush, growing animated as he spoke.

The Supreme Court made this country less safe by telling Bush he had to follow the Geneva Convention while dealing with the terrorists. I don't agree with the Supreme Court's decision as these aren't soldiers from a sovereign nation, they are scum who, if necessary should be smacked around to get information to save American lives. But if we have to follow the Geneva Convention there needs to be a clear definition on what the interrogators can and can not do.
