I'll take door number two
"The debate comes down to one question," said Stuart Roy, a spokesman for House Majority Leader Tom DeLay. "Are we a nation at war with terror or are we longing for a return to the weak and indecisive foreign policy of the past?" -- NY Times

Roy was responding to further criticism of Bush by Ted Kennedy. I'm wondering if Republicans are thrilled with Roy referring to Reagan's policies as "weak and indecisive."

But the question certainly reveals the Orwellian depths that Republitrons have reached. They seem to prefer massively stupid, illegal and bloody invasions of sovereign countries to weak and indecisive. Of course, informed, intelligent and compassionate responses seem like a reasonable third alternative to me.
