Chutzpah defined

According to Answers.com:
chutz·pah: n. Utter nerve; effrontery.
A second definition could be something like "Democratic outrage at President Bush over North Korea's nuclear ambitions."

I watched the Hildebitch feigning outrage over Bush's "lack of leadership" in allowing the NorKoms to detonate a nuke over the weekend. That would be one example of chutzpah, especially considering her hubby's contribution to Kim Jong-Il's possession of said nukes. Jean-Francois Heinz-Kerry (who is rumored to have served in Vietnam) had this to say about it:
“While we’ve been bogged down in Iraq where there were no weapons of mass destruction (sic), a madman has apparently tested the ultimate weapon of mass destruction.”
This is the same Heinz-Kerry (who is rumored to have served in Vietnam) who maintained just three short years ago that "the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real, but it is not new." Typical "for before against" claptrap.

Jason at Texas Rainmaker makes the following observation about another demonstrator of chutzpah, Joe Biden (Plagiarist-DE):
“The Bush Administration’s policy of malign neglect of North Korea was based on the false assumption that the DPRK would solve our problem by collapsing,” said Senator Biden. “Once again, the Administration has made a colossal misjudgment on a matter vital to our national security.”
Funny he should mention the “gamble” of banking on NK’s collapse. Here’s an article from April, 2000 about gambling on NK’s collapse:
The Clinton administration gambled that construction would take so long that North Korea would collapse politically and economically before the reactors were put in place, Downs said.
And here’s what Biden said about that failure...
“Six years ago, the United States was on the verge of launching a preemptive air strike against North Korea’s nuclear facilities. Two years ago, North Korea launched a long-range missile over Japan. Today, through patient diplomacy backed by strong military deterrence, the political landscape on the Korean Peninsula is being transformed more quickly than anyone thought possible,” Biden said.
But suddenly you put an (R) next to the President’s name and the “patient diplomacy” is now a “colossal misjudgement”. Predictable inconsistency.
Go a little easy on Joe, Jason. He didn't have the talking points to plagiarize from ahead of time, so he had to ad lib it. Not his forté, you know.

Speaking of "inconsistency", how about this?
Reid and several others called for direct talks between the U.S. and North Korea, a proposal Snow flatly rejected.
Geez, these #ssholes complain that we "go it alone" in Iraq, then they want us to go it alone with North Korea? Make up your freakin' minds, liberals! Snow is right: the NorKoms are trying to give themselves stature by pressuring the US into direct talks so they can extort money from us, and if there are other countries in the room, it's pretty tough to get that kind of extortion to work.

It's indisputable: Clinton's 1994 plan to give the NorKoms two light water nuke reactors got us to where we are today. All the NorKoms did was promise not to make nukes, and Bubba and Not-too-bright said "Hey, works for us!" Who knew that commie dictators could be liars??

All this crap happened in the 1990's when a certain intern-diddling cigar-hiding defense-squandering hedonist was running the show, and now that his successor has been tasked with cleaning up the mess...it is the successor's fault? And said hedonist's power-hungry spouse and her leftist minions are critical of the successor?

Chutzpah, my friends. Shameless, unadulterated chutzpah.
