Rove Owes No Apology

Ah, the enigma that is the loony left in this country. They can issue anti-American statements all day long, but how dare you question their loyalty and patriotism to this country. They can make slanderous accusations against the military, comparing them to jack-booted Nazis, but don’t you doubt for one minute that they “support the military”.

As if these two absurd self-contradictory assertions weren’t enough, we can now add on yet another ludicrous assertion that liberals expect us to give them a pass on. It goes something like this, “how dare you accuse me of saying exactly what I said, or acting like I acted. You’d better apologize and make that post haste!”

Karl Rove, President Bush’s senior adviser and chief political strategist, made a few remarks criticizing the liberals about their response to 9/11 in a speech he delivered yesterday in Manhattan that has the Democrats seeing red and demanding an apology.

Here are some of the highlights from Rove’s speech:

"Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers,"

"I don't know about you, but moderation and restraint is not what I felt when I watched the twin towers crumble to the ground, a side of the Pentagon destroyed, and almost 3,000 of our fellow citizens perish in flames and rubble."

"Has there ever been a more revealing moment this year?" Mr. Rove asked. "Let me just put this in fairly simple terms: Al Jazeera now broadcasts the words of Senator Durbin to the Mideast, certainly putting our troops in greater danger. No more needs to be said about the motives of liberals."

That last remark, of course, refers to Senator “Turban Durbin’s” comparison of our military’s treatment of the blood thirsty terrorists imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba with the prisoner handling tactics and techniques of Nazis in their death camps, Soviets in their gulags, and Pol Pot in his killing fields.

Democratic Senator Charles Schumer responded to Rove’s remarks in typical liberal spin:

"In New York, where everyone unified after 9/11, the last thing we need is somebody who seeks to divide us for political purposes."

The last thing we need is someone trying to divide this country for political purposes? Mr. Schumer, you, along with your party, have been doing that very thing, non-stop, since the end of the 2000 election. Every since the Democrats lost the election of 2000 and its majority of both the house and the senate, they have become the party with a permanent case of colic. These sore losers have done nothing but whine and cry for the last five years.

From their constant repetition of the mantra “selected not elected”, (to protest Bush’s election to President), to their assertion that the minority party should have a say, (their justification for the recent filibusters against Bush’s nominees for Supreme Court Justice position), the Democrats have been playing politics. Powered by their hatred for Bush, as well as their indignation at losing their power hold in Congress, liberals have managed to unleash numerous anti-American, and anti-military statements. Their political posturing has been particularly irritating since 9/11.

Unfortunately for the Democrats, Karl Rove has hit the proverbial "nail on the head" when it comes to describing the liberals' attitude and agenda in response to 9/11 and the nations war against terror. And, they are squirming with discomfort. The Democrats are so furious with Rove that they are drafting a letter to be sent to President Bush in an attempt to get Bush to pressure Rove into issuing an apology.

Oh, please. Rove apologize for telling the truth? If anyone needs to issue an apology it is the Democrats themselves. They owe the nation a sincere apology for putting their lust for power, and their hateful opposition to Bush ahead of this country’s security and the safety of the very military that is giving their all to keep America safe. They need to apologize for their attempts to divide this country into two America’s. Mr. Schumer, it is you and your party that needs to apologize for “trying to divide this country for political purposes.”

You can get an apology out of a liberal about as easily as you can get Ted Kennedy to show you what's in his brown paper bag. Just before the election last year my dad was ranting and raving about how if Bush was elected again there would be a draft by Christmas. (side not: If there was a draft I would be the first to the recruiting station and proudly serve my country in a time of need.) Being the capitalist, opportunistic pig that I am, I made a $100 dollar bet with him that there would be no draft. Needless to say I won the bet, but I felt bad for him, so I extended the length of the bet until 2008. When '08 rolls around I'll be waiting for my $100 and an apology. He'll pay up, but won't apologize. I can here the excuse now. Karl probably convinced GW not to draft.

'Right' on!!! You yourself have hit the nail on the head when you describe the liberals as: “how dare you accuse me of saying exactly what I said, or acting like I acted." Mr. Rove didn't call the liberals "democrats" but I guess we can surmise they have identified themselves by their very own words of protest. Why can't the democrats understand the truth? Why do they seem so offended by it? The very fact that they deny President Bush's victory in 2000 and claim that the Supreme Court put him into office by dishonest means speaks volumns about their complete hatred for what is true. The Supreme Court didn't elect President Bush. The great voters of the State of Florida did!!! There was never any vote count in Florida that Bush lost (in spite of all the lies the Democrats told and tried to tell). For democrats to say anything otherwise is out and out lies. It's enough to make a sane man vomit.
