Dems Feign Outrage at Rove's Mild Remarks

Last week the Democratic Party's Number Two in the Senate, Dick "Vermin" Durbin, compared America to Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany, and the Khmer Rouge. His fellow Democratic Senators pointedly failed to object to Durbin's hyperbolic calumnies, typically not seeming to mind their high propaganda value to America's terrorist enemies. Evidently enjoying the publicity, Durbin steadfastly refused to apologize — until his buddy and fellow pro-abortion "Catholic" Richard Daley, Mayor of Chicago, referred to Durbin's ravings as "a disgrace" (hat tip: In a Disorderly Fashion). Durbin responded in a truly contemptible fashion, weeping and blubbering in front of cameras as he expressed his undying love for the troops he had been methodically knifing in the back.


Caught once again with egg on their faces, the Dhimmicrats are responding as you might expect, by going into attack mode. The problem is, they have no ammunition. Ideally they would highlight a Republican making comments comparably irresponsible and despicable. But since that is unlikely to happen in our lifetimes, they had to make do.

In a speech before New York State's Conservative Party, Karl Rove observed that "liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers" whereas conservatives, "saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war."

Is this outrageous? Acknowledging that Rove meant "offer therapy" in a metaphorical sense, and that the context pertained to liberals of the stripe, is it even disputable?

But apparently it's the most controversial remark the Dems could get out of the mouth of a Republican, because this is the ball they feel compelled to run with.

Charles "Chuck the Schmuck" Schumer opportunistically capitalized on 9/11 by accusing Rove of opportunistically capitalizing on 9/11. New York's other unfortunate Senate pick, Hillary "Shrillary Rotten" Clinton, demanded that Donald Rumsfeld repudiate the supposedly "insulting" comment. Harry "The Body" Reid absurdly demanded that Rove either grovel in apology or resign.

Obviously having no reason to apologize, Republicans took advantage of the opportunity their politically inept opponents handed them to elaborate.

"The Republican leadership priority is to have our troops hunt down, kill or capture terrorists before they try to attack us again at home," said Ron Bonjean, spokesman for House Speaker Dennis Hastert. "The Democratic leadership priority is to actively engage in the politics of division and distraction that can undermine our national security in favor of a left-wing agenda."

He was too polite to add that the left-wing agenda is not the only one that is favored over national security by prominent Democrats who spew anti-American propaganda to the delight of al Jazeera; al Qaeda's is favored as well. But whatever liberal elitists may think of them, most voters are smart enough to connect the dots.

Come on, Dems. Put up a fight. Make it fun. You're going out like Mike Tyson.

In 2008 the perfect Dhimmicrat candidate for President will be ... wait for it.. Sybok Spock's half-brother who is half-baked which means he will fit right in with those liberals who wanted to offere therapy and he even has the perfect campaign to appeal to moonbats, "Let me share your pain."

Yo Sybok Sha-ka-ree this.... *pppfffttt*

Notice how Rove said "liberals" not "Democrats", but Schumer, Shrillary, and the others immediately look offense.

"Shrillary Rotten"

Hey! I can't take credit for that one!!!

But seriously-- they're going down faster than Monica Lewinsky in a White House crawl-space...faster than a Parisian in a prizefight...

I read Daly's comments. My respect for him has skyrocketed.

"The Democratic leadership priority is to actively engage in the politics of division and distraction that can undermine our national security in favor of a left-wing agenda."

And the republicans aren't in the business of diverting and distracting from the quagmire in Iraq, or the situations not going as planned domestically?

There is some substance to what Rove said, but let's not pretend the democrats are the only ones playing spin the story.

Yeah, sometimes the Republicans play the spin game. Forunately the spin from the right does not de-moralize our fighting men and women, bestow constitutional rights on murderers and terrorists committed by religious teachings to kill us, and play on Aljereeza and the Arab newspapers to fuel the hatred for the United States. There is not an equity in Durbin verus Rove. Most importantly, the spin from the left does not play well at home, taking bets on the 2006 elections?

You're right Eneils, the right only sends the men and women to die, then pretends all is well. Are we now pretending Iraq is not a huge clusterfuck that is accomplishing less every day?

As I remember, the "War" in Iraqi was a part of President Bush's stated "War on Terrorism." The "War" was approved and funded by the Congress of The U.S. As much as you believe the military action against Iraqi was uncalled for, I happen to believe it is necessary to help prevent more U.S. citizens from being massacred within our country. Men and women dying in war is very sad indeed, so is three thousand innocent women, children , and men, dying within the borders of our country. The "War" in Iraqi could be going better, but is is certainly not a "clusterfuck." There have been impressive political accomplishments in that region and more are to come, because the U.S. has chosen confront terrorism at one of its origins. As I have stated before, terrorism against the United States did not start and does not end with OBL. The only pretending I see, is if we do not confront terrorism globally we will suddenly convince Islamnic terrorist worldwide not to keep coming to the U.S. to kill us. I hope you remember the embassy takeover in Iran, the attempted murder of the Pope, the World Trade Center bombing, the killings in Africa by Islamnists, the school kids murdered in Russia, the killings in the Moscow theater, the bombing in Indonesia, the train bombing in Spain, the bombings in Israel, the heads cut off, the terrorists cells broken up in the U.S., the list is almost endless, and these acts of terror were supported by a number of countries, including the previous regime in Iraqi. Please excuse me for getting carried away, but I think some people pretend these things are not connected.

It has been offered by CIA documents that we are providing a training ground for terrorists from other regions, enabling them to return to their respective regions better equipped to terorrize. Maybe if Bush hadn't run off half-cocked with no plan, we would have more European support and the ability to fight terorrism on more fronts.

As it is, it looks like we will have to take up the cause in other regions for a much longer period of time, thus putting our military at greater risk. Speaking for myself, this is how I have interpreted at least some of the opposition to the war from dems and liberals.

Good thing Dems hadn't degenerated into the spineless back-stabbing snivelers they are now back in Forties, or we'd all be speaking German. Like all wars, the one in Iraq is not going perfectly. But I'm still waiting to hear a better plan from the Left. Or any plan.

Posted by: Van Helsing at June 26, 2005 12:23 PM

Plans are generally made BEFORE one blindly leaps across the chasm, Van. We didn't fight WWII by ourselves, which enabled us to take care of Japan and help the allied front at the same time. Not the case now, because Bush has alienated us from most useful allies in his effort to hurry and have something for Halliburton to rebuild. Before you list the "allies", let me say that a few hundred troops or an airstrip here and there are not what I would call allied forces.

It's a little more difficult to devise a better plan after things are FUBAR, and the administration believes it is omniscient. The right seems more interested in saving face at all costs, than it does saving lives.

There's just one problem at the Dhims' outrage: Rove didn't say "Democrats", did he? He said "liberals"! Whether we agree with his statement or not, I find the Dhims' defensive remarks intriguing because...well, because these Dems (like most in elected positions) pretend like hell that they aren't liberal! So if they claim to be non-liberal, why should they care about Rove's comments about liberals, hmmmmmmmmm? I mean, I'm from Tennessee, but if you spoke poorly about rednecks, I wouldn't get defensive because I'm not a redneck! So this tells me that the Dems in question are indeed liberals, which is long as they'd just admit it's who they are!
