If you can't stand the heat...
...then keep your treasonous trap shut. It looks like the Dems are starting to feel uneasy about the new GOP commercial that accurately portrays the Dems' anti-war sentiments. From Drudge:
Today, Senator Daniel Inouye, the Ranking Member of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee and a recipient of the Medal of Honor for his service in World War II, released the following statement:Emphasis mine. You are correct, sir: playing politics should play no part in war. However, you bastards launched the salvo in your fit of BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome), and now you don't like it that the other side doesn't fight French-style...i.e. they fight back.
"As a Veteran of World War II, I know what it’s like to fight a war and put your life on the line every day. I also know what it takes to win a war, and I know that politics and an attack machine like the President’s plays no part in it.
"The Republican Party’s latest ad is a shameful and disgusting attempt to distract the American people from the problems in Iraq. It may improve the President’s political fortunes, but the American people and our troops will pay the price. I hope that President Bush realizes how shameful it is to play politics when what we really need is leadership, and that he will direct his Party to take down this ad immediately."
Also, the last sentence: "I hope that President Bush realizes how shameful it is to play politics when what we really need is leadership." Yes, the President AND the American people find politics during wartime to be shameful, and they look for leadership. Unfortunately, the left offers none.
If you leftists have criticisms of the war effort because you think the administration is doing it wrong, fine...let's hear your suggestions. Something other than "get out now" or "Bush sucks" would be a nice start. Until then, how about a nice hot mug of Shut the F##k Up juice and let our military do the job properly...m'kay? Thanks in advance.
