Bush Using Straw-Man Arguments in Speeches
WASHINGTON - "Some look at the challenges in Iraq and conclude that the war is lost and not worth another dime or another day,"
President Bush said recently.
Another time he said, "Some say that if you're Muslim you can't be free."
"There are some really decent people," the president said earlier this year, "who believe that the federal government ought to be the decider of health care ... for all people."
Of course, hardly anyone in mainstream political debate has made such assertions.
Wingnuts will be all over this, claiming that it shows "media bias."
"Media bias" is REFUSING to point out such obvious demagoguery.
