Ouch! That’s Going To Leave A Mark

Published by at 12:38 pm under 2006 Elections,All General Discussions,Iraq

Don Rumsfeld (and other administration leaders) are taking the gloves off and applying some serious 2×4’s to the left and their enablers in the antique media. First Rumsfeld voiced his concern the media was being manipulated (or worse) by the terrorist propaganda machine (which seems to be light years more sophisticated than the media can grasp). Now he is explaining how the Neville Chamberlain nature of the appeasement pleas coming from the left:

Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld on Tuesday accused critics of the Bush administration’s Iraq and counter-terrorism policies of trying to appease “a new type of fascism.”

In unusually explicit terms, Rumsfeld portrayed the administration’s critics as suffering from “moral and intellectual confusion” about what threatens the nation’s security and accused them of lacking the courage to fight back.

After three years of handwringing and grasping for excuses to surrender and run from Iraq the left is not going to be able to deny their lack of backbone and fortitude. The truth is, they are playing the Neville Chamberlain game and signalling the terrorists we are weak and vulnerable and scared to stand up to them, which is like waving a red cape at a Bull. It only entices the terrorists to attack and not hesitate or retreat.

    His statement absolutely rocks.

    I wish these guys would start all saying it, sticking to it, and keep sticking to it until some big waves are made.

    Sadly, this is more likely to be a brief and quickly forgotten episode.

    Rumsfeld can certainly bring focus to a subject!

    The media and the Left have created a popular myth that the Iraq War is separate from the War on Terror. This myth is hurting our ME effort and hurting Republicans at the polls. I wish more focus could be brought to dispell this before the fall elections.

    ” light years more sophisticated than the media can grasp”- Except for items of popular culture, most everything is beyond the media’s grasp.
