Stop talking about "freedom!"

Adventures in sour feelings with the Berlin Aspen Institute with the Weekly Standard:

«My interlocutors--who on other subjects had wide-ranging views--all emphatically greed on one thing: Bush should stop talking about "freedom." Several people had counted the times our president had used the F-word. They noted that Chancellor Gerhard Schröder had avoided using it at all. The Germans prefer "stability" to disturbing the status quo by trying to spread "freedom."»
