Sorry for the delay folks, but Car problems + Computer problems = Delay of Blog posts. If you want to help, hit the Tipjar on the side. Thank you. But to continue the theme of this blog on why the D's will not win this year.....
A) Does anyone remember the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing? Did Clinton go up to New York and comfort the wounded? Did he say he will stop them for good? Once they captured the "Blind sheik", he said on the way to prison that they would attack the WTC again. Did the Clinton's listen?
B) Since war was officially declared on the United States on 9/11 (unofficially by Osama Bin Laden on August 1996), what have the Democratic Party and their allies done to support our defense (and offense)? Let's start with the recent leak of the NIE by a Rep. Harmen [D-CA] staffer? How about the New York Times and LA Times release of the SWIFT program? Blocking the Patriot Act? And some more detail on what else the Democrats have stopped.
B1) Remember the line "Politics stops at the Waters Edge?" Well, when Chavez and the Howard Dean sound exactly alike at their disdain for President Bush, something is wrong with the body politic. People vote for people who remind them of themselves. Say what you will for patriotism, it is a foundation for a majority of the middle who votes. When the GOP impeached Clinton, they lost seats. The D's forgot that lesson of the 90's.
We are at war. It wasn't chosen by President Bush, it was started by Osama. Everytime the President says we need to do something to protect ourselves from another attack, the D's counter with another reason not to support the President. If the Dems want to support National Security, support National Security. Disagree, but come up with a solution. Since neither Pelosi or Reid have come up with a plan to deal with the War on Terror, they will not win a majority in either House. In 1994, the GOP had a plan against a 40 year entrenched view.
I challenge all Democrats and otherwise to prove me wrong.
UPDATE: Three Days later and no challangers. Ergo, the GOP will win on November 7.
