The American people gave the President a mandate to fight this war vigorously. Where should we go from here?

 

Given that victory, do we now turn our attention away from the specter of Kerry and put pressure on Bush to take of the kid gloves?  Now that criticism of Bush won’t be exploited by the Kerry partisans, can we exert positive pressure to deal with the enemy vigorously without apology or appeasement? During the campaign Bush felt pressure from the appeasement-Left, shall we not expert pressure from Bush’s right flank?

 

Are there any suggestions on a rational policy for supporting while encouraging our President to do more?

THIS SENTENCE!

This sentence shows the true colour of many 'objectivists'.

Obviously he has already decided what he wants to believe, before he has given the subject area any rational analysis.

Putting the cart before the horse as usual.

A true objectivist would form the rational argument first - and THEN see what conclusion this led to. NOT pick a conclusion - and then fish around for a rational justification for it.

Do you people see the difference between these two approaches?

One is using philosophy to discover truth about the world - the other is using philosophy to back up what you have already decided is the truth.
