In essence, he was saying "No, we cant win, terrorists will always exist, but we HAVE to fight them or they go unchecked and do even more damage than they would had we went out and kicked their asses."
This is an example where people hear what they want to hear. When I heard it told I was like "That stupid mother ****er. I cant believe he said that." Then I read the article, going in biased AGAINST Bush cause he is an idiot, and realized the context of the words he ACTUALLY said as opposed to what has been misquoted (at least in the sense of the context).
Now had Kerry said this same thing and I read the exact same quote I would be in here defending that too. Its not what they meant when they said it and the god damn reporters KNEW it.
That could be Bro , I am not realy worried about it , just playing Devils advocate here
Actually with Football here , I just cant get into the Politics ..... I tried though
