Republicans: Tell America We'll Fight Terror the Democrat Party Way (great read!)
Human Events ^ | May 16, 2006 | Rabbi Aryeh Spero

Posted on 05/21/2006 6:04:25 PM PDT by FairOpinion

Every time the Democrats “expose” how the administration is fighting the war on terror, Republicans become defensive and hide for cover as if we are doing something wrong. Instead, let the President or the Speaker or Senate Majority Leader offer the following proposition: No more intercepting calls from Al Qaeda. No more detention of captured terrorist suspects. No more detention camps.

No more tough investigations of terrorists. We will simply be satisfied with only that information the terrorists voluntarily offer. No more FBI working with the CIA or NSA, just as prior to 9/11. No more searches, as it is “profiling.” No prosecution of government workers revealing to the world our secrets—in fact, we will award them as “patriotic” whistleblowers as claimed by liberals.

No more standing up for our “cowboy” soldiers on the battlefield who are defending themselves against the terrorists—agreed, we are only as good as how well we treat the enemy.

No pre-emption. We will wait until millions of Americans have been incinerated by a smuggled- in nuclear bomb from Iran, and only after we’ve been attacked will we respond. Millions of us might be dead, but our no-preemption policy will show we were more “moral.” No more phone data bases or telephone numbers of those possibly contacting sleeper cell operatives waiting here for orders.

It is easy to portray oneself as a champion of “civil liberties” during time of war when one knows that while pontificating the “high road” his safety is still guaranteed since the adults in power will not listen to juvenile cliches and will continue doing the sensible things that must be done to protect Americans.

Let’s point at the Democrats, while the American people are listening, and say: OK, we’ll do it your way. Safety is secondary to whatever Human Rights Watch and the ACLU demand. We will win this war not through the historic methods that have proven efficacious but through the method advanced by the Left. Yes, the Left has assured us that by being ‘beyond criticism’ our enemies will respect us, recognize how sweet we are, and thus put down their arms.

Believe me, if the country thought we were basically dropping all the measures that have protected us since 9/11, they would shudder. They would pine for the restoration of those measures that have thus far protected us. All this high-sounding rhetoric of “civil liberties” would fall flat on its face once people truly believed that we were officially renouncing what has worked. America would tremble at its newly chosen nakedness. People would stop being such high minded “big shots.”

Instead of the usual platitudes, liberal mothers and fathers would have to start acting like parents again, guardians more concerned about the safety of their children than by how sensitive and enlightened we are toward terrorists.

Republican Leaders, look the Democrats in the face and charge: If you were in office and had the responsibility of protecting the country, your party would not follow Russ Feingold and Dick Durban and would be doing 99% of what the President is doing. And if Democrats answer that they would indeed lead according to their holier-than-thou rhetoric, then boldly tell them and the American electorate that such an administration would be derelict in its duty, that such an administration would deserve being booted out of office since they would be leaving the American people defenseless. Charge them as guilty for not using all the technological and physical powers disposable to a Superpower, choosing instead to defend us as if a third world country bereft of any mechanism.

Many of us out here wonder if the Republicans in the Senate and many in the House actually believe—philosophically, emotionally, and juridically—in what we are doing in this fight for our safety. If they do, why do they constantly run from the fight, hide, and act as if all they want is for the issue to blow over? They practice “disassociation.” What they so often do is show “disbelief” and disappointment with what the administration is doing, hoping that they’ll be spared personal criticism from the Press until they, the Press and the Democrats make the administration capitulate.

Instead of hiding for cover, Republicans should come out now and challenge the Democrats, accuse the Democrats of gross folly and irresponsibility. You’ll see how quickly the Dems will hem and haw if for once a Republican pointed a finger at them and said: “You are either hypocrites or fools.”

Most Americans have not become so soft and ersatz “goody” that “how we look to the enemy and ‘the world’” is more important than living. We Republicans are waiting for our leaders to show some moxie, some guts. We’d love to see a patronizing smirk and ridicule when facing these high-sounding liberals, give them some well deserved scorn. For once, act like those who own the high ground, possess the moral authority. If you believe it is moral to protect your people, then, act and sound that way!

It is time Americans realized that many on the Left are against the war in Iraq not because of our dying soldiers. Their kids are generally not in today’s military, and those of ours’ that are dying come from families supportive of the war, families who, unlike those on the left, have no history of constant criticism of America where “dissent” is taught with mother’s milk. They are against the war because they do not want to see victory by the American military. They are against the war in line with how they’ve been critical of America during countless yesterdays and will continue to be critical for untold tomorrows. This is who they are and what they do.

In fact, they would be against even a negotiated outcome, bereft of military involvement, if the success of that outcome would be credited to Republicans and beneficial to the United States. For in the warped minds of many in today’s American Left, anything brought about by the United States or that which is beneficial to the U.S. internationally, is something to detest. Their constant cry about human rights is part of their effort to cause failure for this President or failure for any President who does not recognize America as “part of the problem”. For to the Left, the U.S. is always the major part of the problem. In fact, however, it is they who are the major problem to the U.S. and to our success.

Excellent article. "No pre-emption. We will wait until millions of Americans have been incinerated by a smuggled- in nuclear bomb from Iran, and only after we’ve been attacked will we respond. Millions of us might be dead, but our no-preemption policy will show we were more “moral.” No more phone data bases or telephone numbers of those possibly contacting sleeper cell operatives waiting here for orders. "

I agree -- Republicans should come out and explain WHy it's important to do what we are doing, instead of letting the international and domestic terrorist-lovers and terrorist-protectors define how to fight the War on Terror.

You summed it up nicely. It is time for the Republicans to face up to the Democratic challenge and not run and hide. I am awestruck that no one in the current administration has stood up and taken the Lib's to task and exposed them for what they are. I only hope that it isn't to late!

Well, IMHO, if the pubbies DID do that, the dems would come back with talking points something like:

"Well we wouldn't have to do all this domestic spying and snooping into American citizen's private constitutional protected rights,and all this Homeland Security stuff, if Bush wouldn't have lied to the American people about WMD so he could fight his neo-con war, and make us hated all over the world so we NOW have to spy on law abiding US citizens....blah,blah,yada,yada,etc.....

First no media would cooperate, even Fox has this propensity to offset everything said with an opposing moron from the left. Second, this administration has decided use its "earned political capital" for immigration instead of the things promised like SS reform. Like most elected politicians its more important to retain power than fight for a cause that is perceived as not popular. They are playing not to lose instead of doing their Jobs. .....The 17th amendment has got to go!....and the 16th

But the voters would understand...

The Republicans and the Administration should stop playing defense and learn that the "best defense is an offense" and they have plenty they can tell the American people.

Tell people how successful some of the programs have been and how damaging it is to have it blabbed all over the map by the Dems and the media, and tell the American people straight out, that the Dems are putting their lives in danger.

Remember the Republicans had that great ad on the web with the Dems own words about how weak they are on terror, but within a week, they pulled it. They should play it again -- ON TV.

Bullseye. The only thing is that its hard to credit the Republicans with doing a good job on Homeland Security when our Southern Border is out of control. Sometimes I think its just dumb luck that we haven't been hit post 911.

To paraphrase Micheal Moore, honored guest at the DNC convention "there is no terrorist threat".

The left has NO WILL to fight this battle. They prefer to pretend it doesn't exist. Any incidents would fall under Kerry's "tolerable" level of terrorism.

I just looked and found the transcript of Condi Rice on FoxNews today.

Transcript: Secretary Rice on 'FOX News Sunday'

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,196364,00.html


"But I would ask this. If we do close down Guantanamo, what becomes of the hundreds of dangerous people who were picked up on battlefields in Afghanistan, who were picked up because of their associations with Al Qaeda? We do have an obligation, the president has an obligation, to also keep America and, by the way, many of our allies safe by making certain that people don't return to the battlefield."

We were hit after 9-11. We had a domestic anthrax attack.

Now either the attacker is dead. Captured. Ran out of anthrax. Or fearful of being caught.

Price: Troops' Morale In Iraq Is High

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1628408/posts

"My job was to try to cheer the soldiers up. But in most cases, they didn't need it. … It was an amazing experience. I went to Iraq looking to raise morale. But in the end, it was the soldiers who had done that for me."

Price observed to a Pfc. Meyer, "A lot of folks would say this is awful. You folks have to be here for so long. Is it hard?"

"It's hard being away from your family," Meyer admitted, "but we have a really tight group, and every day I wake up smiling. I'm happy to be here doing what we're doing. I really am; really excited about being here."

In base after base, Price said, most troops had a clear sense of mission.

Sgt. Mark Massey, an Army vehicle commander, is on his third tour. "They don't really hate us as much as we think they do," he told Price. "That's something I'm proud of, that I volunteered to train these Iraqis, because I got to see the culture and I got to see how these real people operate — not what you see on TV."

The tragedy is we have a President that is unable to use words to persuade. He is either tongue tied, or believes that the way he is taking is right. Either way, in Biblical parlance, Moses(GW), needs to find his voice, or let his Aaron loose(Cheney or Rice?), whomever that will be.

Republicans always do best, when they come out and explain the truth to the American people boldly. It always succeeds, yet they are so afraid of doing it. It boggles one's mind.

The Republicans are also running away from President Bush, instead of standing and supporting him.

"make them vote on the record EVERY DAY, so we can watch it on the news."

That is exactly what most of the conservative talk show hosts have been saying. Make them vote on it every time they mouth off.

"Stop tapping the U.S. and foreign phone numbers we got off of a terrorists phone in Afghanistan?" "Great idea, we will name the bill exactly that along with your names senators Kennedy & Durbin."

"Now who who votes aye on the Kennedy/Durbin known Al Qaeda terrorist phone rights bill?"

You're not giving the Pubbies enough credit. As far as I can tell, the President and the Republicans are doing just as this writer suggests whenever they get a chance to state the case for the WOT or a host of other issues where they have the clear moral high ground. Remember, Republicans don't enjoy free media coverage when they argue their case. The drive by media plays a few tidbits out of context in order to further their liberal agenda.

Whenever I do hear unabridged comments by Republicans, either congressional hearings on cspan or those rare occassions where the drive by media plays the entire statement of a Republican congressman or cabinet member, I am always struck by the stark difference between Republicans and Democrats and I am proud to be Republican.

In fact, my wife and kids and I play this game on cspan where we listen to a congresscritter with our eyes closed and try to guess the party affiliation - 99% of the time it takes 10 seconds to tell which are Republicans - they are the ones talking straight and making sense -even regarding immigration they make a 1000% more sense than Dems!

And...George Bush tongue-tied? Did you listen to his immigration speech last week? I may not completely agree with his immigration policies, but he did not trip up a single time in twenty minutes (try doing that sometime). Even the best public speakers screw up once in a while. He sounded great - I think you are buying into the liberal caricature of W as a moron.
