Seems the Democrats are on something of a self destruction path with the American voters. Nancy Pelosi made one of the dumbest comments any politician has made in a decade when she went into her full Neville Chamberlain mode and claimed there were no Al Qaeda in Iraq. Not only are Al Qaeda in Iraq, they claim Iraq the central field of battle in their Jihad against the West. Not to mention the capitol city for the modern Caliphate they want to create is dead center in Iraq and is the city of Ramadi. Talk about your blindered pol! See no evil, Nancy?
And is it any surprise the party which opposes the Patriot Act, monitoring communications of a person in the US with KNOWN terrorists by the NSA (leads from which are then passed to the FBI for investigation and, if a threat, a FISA Court warrant for full monitoring of the US person), the monitoring of terrorist money transfers to detect attacks in the West, and which opposes any military confrontation whatsoever is now going to ignore the 9-11 commission recommendations? Of course they are! Everything I listed previously is in some way an element of 9-11 recommendations! Welcome to the duplicity that is Washington America. I must remind folks Bush was the exception to this swamp – he says what he means and does what he says. Congress is chock full (on both sides of the aisle) of folks who are polar opposites to Bush. The pliant and gullible media is the group which will be most shocked by these kinds of revelations.
The Bush economy is still chugging along nicely. Which will give the Democrats little pause to try and push legislation to screw it up. They are rapidly finding they have little they can do because one motto America does still believe in is “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.
The Bush prescription drug plan for medicare has been a huge success and has lowered the cost of health support to seniors (as he said it would). And now medicare part B preimiums are going to be tied to income so America doesn’t subsidize the rich. This has to just frustrate the Democrats no end since removes another one of their “Robin Hood” fantasies.
And that Iraq Survey Group proposals? I am not even going to link to an article. If they propose withdrawal they need to guarantee such an act will not embolden Al Qaeda and give them the resource and skilled work force and the base of operations they need to begin their takeover of the regions of their desired modern Caliphate. We need assurances that a withdrawal will not lead terrorists into Europe and here to America and will not lead to Isreal’s destruction. No proposal for surrender will be considered without such assurances. Period. Oh, and just a reminder to Baker and the Dems and the Liberal media – Bush is President (thankfully) and you folks are not.
