The Democrats have won control of House and we still await the final results for Senate, but the Dem’s look strong enought there too. This is a return to the time before 9/11 – that era of frivolity- and there will be consequences, with the Jihad MSM loudly proclaiming the "War in Iraq" was a key factor in GOP downfall. Is it too late to save Saddam, I wonder? Can we ask Hillary to put in a request for clemency before it’s too late?
"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
and then…after the Republican Party actually DID something about Saddam….
"The president led us into the Iraq war on the basis of unproven assertions without evidence; he embraced a radical doctrine of pre-emptive war unprecedented in our history; and he failed to build a true international coalition. "
I am disappointed that the Defeaticrats have prevailed – as they offer NOTHING. They are void of ideas other than bashing Bush for two more years. I am disappointed that too may Americans have forgotten the lessons of 9/11. I suggest a reminder will be coming their way from a freshly invigorated Islamistan.
But Bush is not beyond criticism here. The past few years have been nothing short of uninspiring. He has favoured Condi and US State, whilst sidelining Rummy and the more robust approach of Cheney. He has been hopeless at dealing with illegal immigration. He has failed to follow Conservative principles in too many areas. And there has been too much corruption in his administration, though you have to seriously wonder if the Dem’s are whiter than white. (See Nancy Pelosi’s endorsement of Alcee Hastings for the position of Chairmanship of the Intelligence Committee. The Democratic House voted to impeach Hastings from his federal judgeship in 1988 for conspiring to extract a $150,000 bribe from convicted criminals in return for lowering their sentences. Now that is all forgotten and he is to hold this key job!)
America is still at war today with the Islamofascists just as it was yesterday. Nothing has changed in that regard. But today, a white flag has been hoisted up the mast-pole and we will watch the response from those who sit in caves and plan our annihilation. Do you think THEY also will celebrate this morning?
The GOP has two years to revive itself, to awaken from the slumber of recent years. I trust that it will find the imagination, the courage and the resolve to win back support that has drained away. The further we get from 9/11, the stronger the siren voices of those who live in 10th Septemberland become. But follow them – and you will crash on the rocks, or something worse….
