This neatly encapsulates Bush's, and to a lesser extent Blair's method of argument, 'Do you want what I want, or do you want the end of the world?'.
A while ago, I got a questionaire from Charles Clarke asking 'Do you want the police to be able to do their job effectively, or do you disagree with Labour policy?'. I paraphrase slightly, but that was the gist of it. I think many people besides me must have complained about it, because a couple of days later I got a circular email apologising. Treating people like idiots always backfires in the end.
