From the NYT . . .

President Bush issued an unusually stark warning to Democrats today about how to conduct the debate on Iraq as midterm elections approach, declaring that Americans know the difference "between honest critics" and those "who claim that we acted in Iraq because of oil, or because of Israel, or because we misled the American people."

Don't you just love it when people have to resort to telling other people what to do because they have lost the ability to persuade them? Because I'm your mother. Because I said so. Because I'm bigger than you.

As much as anything, Bush is signaling tha he has lost the debate, and he knows it. Trying to put a subject off limits is an act of desperation.
