More on Boogeymen

Yesterday, I implied that we should be extending the current censure debate beyond Bush to include the philosophies underlying Bush administration practices (wiretaps, torture, etc.). Today, Crooks and Liars has a video of Sen. Pat Roberts showing that this does in fact go beyond Bush:
Roberts: This isn't a Bush issue. This is an issue for the next commander in chief to have the authority--and the one after that--to have the authority to protect the country.
The right is essentially abandoning Bush, but I'm quite sure they want to preserve his policies, and Roberts is essentially saying that.

I don't necessarily think censure is a bad idea or unwarranted, but I do think that we need to put it into a broader context.
