Seem relatively non-controversial
to me."Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers," Mr. Rove said at the annual dinner of the New York State Conservative Party.
Unless the liberals are objecting to the term "savagery" (they'd probably prefer something like "justifiable nature"), I don't see the controversy. Wanted to prepare indictments? Check. John Kerry last year was talking about terrorism as a legal problem. Offering therapy and understanding? Check. The libs were all claiming that terrorism was caused by poverty in the Middle East and asking "Why do they hate us?"
In reality what the libs are trying to do is get the attention away from Durbin's stupid comments.
