"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Meanwhile in Iran...

Condoleezza is charming as ever.

LONDON, June 3 (IranMania) - Iran hit out at US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice Friday for comments on its participation in an Iraq reconstruction conference and "interference" in elections, the student news agency ISNA reported."Ms Rice is infuriated by our foreign minister's successful trip to Iraq and feels belittled when comparing that to her own trip," said foreign ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi, referring to a landmark visit last month by Foreign Minister Kamal Kharazi to Iraq.

Asked if Iran would be invited to the conference to be held in Brussels on June 22, Rice had launched into a litany of criticism of Iran."We have our differences with Iran. We believe very strongly that Iran is a state that is out of step with what is going on in the region," the chief US diplomat said.
I'm thinking it might do our diplomatic relations some good if How to Win Friends & Influence People was required reading at the White House; well that and a book on ethics.
