This Cato briefing paper by Timothy Lynch, “Doublespeak and the War on Terrorism,” (616KB PDF) lists some of Dubya’s favorite propaganda phrases, and concludes:

The American people must recognize these odious tactics for what they are and remain vigilant about our Constitution and individual liberty. Too many people seem to think that the Constitution will automatically check the government from overstepping its authority and running amok. That simply is not true. The Constitution is incapable of enforcing itself. The ultimate limit on the power of government has always been the patience of the people.

(Thanks to Bruce Schneier for the tip.)
