Losing Argument: The government is doing everything it can to protect our country

Losing Argument:

"Our government is doing everything we can to stop another attack…We’re doing everything we can to protect our country.” – President Bush, 1/29/02

Why it's a loser:

Here is one reason: "The homeland security agency tasked with hunting down terrorists inside U.S. borders and shutting down human smuggling and nacro-trafficking is so strapped for cash that it’s asking agents to wash government cars at home, on their own time, and use money earmarked for confidential informants to pay for gas." (MSNBC, 10/19/04)
