Liberals Demand Democrats Run To The Cliff

Published by at 11:28 am under All General Discussions,Bin Laden/GWOT

In my previous post below I pointed out how it will be the liberals who come out demanding democrats take a stand that basically says we need to impeach Bush for monitoring terrorist plans here in the US by monitoring their counterparts overseas for leads. Up comes Molly Ivins right on cue to make my point:

I’d like to make it clear to the people who run the Democratic Party that I will not support Hillary Clinton for president.

Enough. Enough triangulation, calculation and equivocation. Enough clever straddling, enough not offending anyone This is not a Dick Morris election. Sen. Clinton is apparently incapable of taking a clear stand on the war in Iraq, and that alone is enough to disqualify her. Her failure to speak out on Terri Schiavo, not to mention that gross pandering on flag-burning, are just contemptible little dodges.

The recent death of Gene McCarthy reminded me of a lesson I spent a long, long time unlearning, so now I have to re-learn it. It’s about political courage and heroes, and when a country is desperate for leadership. There are times when regular politics will not do, and this is one of those times. There are times a country is so tired of bull that only the truth can provide relief.

For liberals it is the all-or-nothing year. They want full compliance from their puppets or else.

This supposedly pits Howard Dean, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, emboldened by “a string of bad new from the Middle East … into calling for premature retreat from Iraq,” versus those pragmatic folk like Steny Hoyer, Rahm Emmanuel, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and Joe Lieberman.

Oh come on, people — get a grip on the concept of leadership. Look at this war — from the lies that led us into it, to the lies they continue to dump on us daily.

These people actually believe the political spin. Everyone knows Saddam had WMDs at one point. And no one was prepared to believe he would destroy them and then not tell the UNin order to stop our invasion plans. Molly’s more laughable (and pathetic) than usual. Here is the line that sums up Molly’s Madness:

Bush, Cheney and Co. will continue to play the patriotic bully card just as long as you let them. I’ve said it before: War brings out the patriotic bullies.

Emphasis mine. Got that? WW II brought out the Pattons, Eisenhowers, Churchills and Roosevelts who beat up on poor Adolf and Benito. Those darn Bullies. If it weren’t for war we would never had bullied them, we would have just left them alone to do what they wanted.

Molly – you are insane.

    How wrong you are. Go back and look at the record. The first Republican President, Lincoln. Put a Governor in jail and centralized power in the Executive. WWI had the Sedition Acts. WWII broke the Corporate world into pieces. The Gulf, the Interiem and the Second Gulf confirmed the Imperial Presidency. The problem “liberal Dems” have is that 2 of the “bullies” were Dems. Anyone who goes fact hunting knows Saddam did NOT have any WMD’s, unlike Iran who has, and had since the first Gulf war, an entire mountain of Nuc researchers and a reactor. I don’t fault Bush for believing the media and “common wisdom” about WMD in Iraq. I DO fault him for claiming Iraq was a friend to Al-Quada. That’s about like saying Orthodox Jews and Evangical Christians are best buddies. I also know that the govenment knew within two weeks that of 14 guys on the planes 11 came from Saudi. Why not invade them?

    BurbankErnie has it exactly right. I’m having a beer with Molly right now as well. But, wait . . . let me be serious for a second.

    In full recognition of my enduring solidarity with that one thought, and only with that one thought of one Molly Ivins, I now raise my right hand, oh so slowly, and in deep recognition of the gravity of the moment, (I am taking a deep breath) . . . I solemnly swear with her . . . “I will never support HRC for President.”

    There, I did it. Hey . . . Let’s get everyone to do it . . . man, woman, liberal, conservative, moderate, moonbat . . . whatever. This is a great day! Thank you Molly!
