The Horror, The Horror.
It is becoming a sad reply. President Bush plays the fear card and Democrats running scared. During this morning press conference, President Bush basically told reporters if you don’t support me and my policies your kids will die.
Asked by MSNBC's David Gregory why anyone should view him as credible on the war, Bush gave an answer that included this about the terrorists:President Bush has no creditability left. The Iraq war lead by President Bush and supported by Republican in Congress, along with weak-kneed Democrats, has been disastrous. It is time to start bringing our troops home."They are a threat to your children, David."And in response to The New York Times's Jim Rutenberg, who asked why Bin Laden is still at large, Bush gave an answer that included this about terrorism:"It's a danger to your children, Jim."
But, what do the Democrats do?
Democrats said they did not relish the prospect of leaving Washington for a Memorial Day break — the second recess since the financing fight began — and leaving themselves vulnerable to White House attacks that they were again on vacation while the troops were wanting. That criticism seemed more politically threatening to them than the anger Democrats knew they would draw from the left by bowing to Mr. Bush.Oh wait, it gets worst.
“The problem is that we have to provide money for the troops, and if we don’t, the Democrats will be blamed,” added Rep. James P. Moran, D-Va., a war opponent. “Bush has the bully pulpit, so he will define who is responsible.”Oh my goodness, lets not stand up for the American people and the troops because the formidable Republicans and President Bush will attacks us. Pathetic. What the Democrats in Congress fail to understand is that people hate Bush and hate the Iraq war. Every single time the President Bush open is mouth his poll ratings decrease. They are going to attack the Democratic Party no matter what Iraq funding bill becomes law. Any Democrat who thinks that voting for this bill will save themselves criticism and being called “weak on defense" or "soft on terrorism" or accuse of "not supporting the troops" is delusional. The GOP only has fear left.
In 2006, the American people voted for change and Congressional Democrats just fail to give it to them.
