Dems: Smoke & Mirrors 101
I guess that depends on what the meaning of “truth” is. Your current leading candidate, Hillary Clinton, is such a shining example of honesty and integrity. And whose “truth” do you mean, exactly? John Kerry’s and Rosie O’Donnell’s? You know, the “truth” that says our troops are terrorists? And dying for no reason? Yeah, that is a really compassionate, caring, tolerant thing to say to the people who are defending YOUR rights and freedoms. The very rights that you use to insult them. Nice. Or the “truth” (yeah, I am loving the sneer quotes. Be warned, more follow) that 9/11 was a scheme hatched by Karl Rove and Dick Cheney to boost Haliburton?
…”We believe in a strong national defense that is both tough and smart, recognizing that homeland security begins with hometown security.
Democrats have a plan that is comprehensive– from repairing our military, to winning the war on terror, to protecting our homeland security, to ensuring success in Iraq and freeing America of its dependence on foreign oil–and it will finally prepare America for the security needs of the 21st Century. And we honor the sacrifices our troops, their families and veterans by making sure we take care of them when they come home.”
Hmmm, let’s just pick those three sentences apart, shall we?
…Begins with Hometown security: Um, wasn’t it the Democrats who passed the entire onus of Hurricane Katrina onto President Bush and NOT the Local Hometown authorities? Oh! You must mean that you are changing course and will embrace the idea of citizens arming themselves? To provide hometown security and all. No?
Repairing our military: WHO was it that decimated the military? Wasn’t it your hero Bill Clinton? Didn’t he cut the military to obscenely low levels and refuse to give military raises? Wasn’t it under the Clinton administration that Active military members actually qualified for welfare? ACTIVE military, no less.
Winning the War on Terror: Two parts….. I’m confused; I thought that, according to y’all, there is no such thing as the War on Terror? Two, I thought we already lost the phantom non-existent war? Again, I’m a tad perplexed.
Protecting our Homeland Security: By revoking that pesky patriot act that has caught an untold number of terrorists and foiled a butt load of plots, I guess. Not to mention giving RIGHTS to enemy combatants at Club Gitmo. Or is enemy combatant another no-no, racist term ? Is it now “poor misunderstood friends if only the Evil Bush would just TALK to them?”
Oh and making that border WIDE open. Or, I should say, wider. Which I didn’t think was actually possible, but apparently it is.
Ensuring success in Iraq: See Winning the War on Terror. Yet again, I am baffled. Harry Reid et al have already told us, and our troops in the midst of FIGHTING, that we’ve lost. Perhaps y’all should read this Letter From a Soldier. Might help clarify things for your tunnel visioned minds. Not everything is about “getting” Bush or making him look bad, you know. Besides, he can do that well enough on his own.
Freeing America of its dependence on foreign oil: And how do you propose to do that, oh wise ones, when you won’t allow any new drilling and you haven’t allowed a new refinery to be built in over 30 years? Buddy up some more to your pal Hugo Chavez? Yeah, that’s a good plan. He is so balanced and stable. A true strongman who now, literally, rules by decree. A Fidel Castro, but with oil. In fact he has equated himself with Castro, calling himself “The second Fidel Castro of Latin America”. He also calls Saddam Hussein “A brother”. But, I guess since he, dementedly, hates George W. Bush as much as y’all do, then he gets a pass and you’ll gladly guzzle up his oil to fill your private jets while lecturing the rest of us on our incandescent light bulb and toilet paper addictions.
I won’t even delve farther into the mess that passes for a Democrat Party agenda. Not one word ever truly means anything. It is just smoke and mirrors and not even good smoke and mirrors. Far too easy to see through and scoff at. A running litany of flowery, feel-good phrases that they hope us ignorant, Joe 6 packs will fall for, as we can’t possible be as smart and progressive as they are. Well, you need new spinners, Democrats. It ain’t working any longer. Hey, Karl Rove will be out of a job soon. Have y’all considered hiring?
