Boy King on 1st Amendment: "something we've all got to live with"

//Once Again, Bush Plays the Al-Qaida Card // (Washn)
By Dana Milbank
WASHINGTON _ President Bush is at odds with the American public and a restive congressional majority over the Iraq war, and even some Republicans talk about imposing new requirements that could trigger a troop withdrawal.
It's time to play the Qaida card.
In a speech about Iraq Wednesday morning at the Willard Hotel, the president mentioned Osama bin Laden's group -- 27 times. "For America, the decision we face in Iraq is not whether we ought to take sides in a civil war, it's whether we stay in the fight against the same international terrorist network that attacked us on 9/11," Bush told a group of construction contractors.
The White House is well aware that it has had some trouble getting out a coherent message on Iraq. In his speech to the contractors, Bush delivered a less than ringing endorsement of the First Amendment, calling freedom of the press "just something that we've all got to live with."

Re: Boy King on 1st Amendment: "something we've all got to live with"
This is right in line with his previous comment, "The Constitution is just a goddam piece of paper". Sometimes when we hear that our troops are fighting for our freedom, it is difficult to reconcile this with the seeming disregard for the constitution.
