Chris Mathews - We Just Need To Give Them A Hug

In a speech to political science students at the University of Toronto yesterday, the host of the CNBC current affairs show Hardball had plenty of harsh words for U.S. President George W. Bush, as well as the political climate that has characterized his country for the past few years.
“The period between 9/11 and Iraq was not a good time for America. There wasn’t a robust discussion of what we were doing,” Matthews said.
“If we stop trying to figure out the other side, we’ve given up. The person on the other side is not evil — they just have a different perspective.”

Yeah, thats it. We all just need to sit down by the camp fire, have some s'mores, and pretend that all is right with the world. People like Mathews can be just as dangerous as the terrorist.
