Bush NEVER Said We Couldn't Win the War on Terror
In our culture of 24 hour news media, where the only things that matters are soundbites, a politician can't say anything that might be misunderstood...even if it is an intelligent statement. Bush basically told Matt Lauer that the war on terror isn't a war that will be suddenly won or lost. Things aren't that black and white. Instead, the US must foster a world culture that doesn't tolerate terrorists or terrorist activities. Bush is 100% correct in his assesment, but the Democrats have clipped out the portion where Bush seems to say we can't win the war on terror and are beating it to death. If the Kerry campaign was being remotely intellectually honest, they wouldn't ride this non-issue, but this is the nature of politics today.
