Skip to comments.Neocons in the Democratic Party (the war between the rats?)
Posted on 05/28/2006 6:38:32 AM PDT by Dark Skies
Like Kennedy and Truman, Democratic neocons want to beef up the military and won't run from a fight.
DON'T LOOK now, but neoconservatism is making a comeback and not among the Republicans who have made it famous but in the Democratic Party.
A host of pundits and young national security experts associated with the party are calling for a return to the Cold War precepts of President Truman to wage a war against terror that New Republic Editor Peter Beinart, in the title of his provocative new book, calls "The Good Fight."

Pfffft... I'll believe it when I see it.
I don't think they would mix with the well established outright commies and socialist factions there.
If the LA Times said the sun rises in the east, I'd look for it every morning in the west.
There are NO Democrat neocons!!
There are a few who support our military. Zell Miller, Joe Lieberman and Ed Koch come to mind but democrats of that stripe are few and far between.
WOW!! THREE Democrats that support our great Military!!! What a horrible joke the Democrat Party today is.
Clearly, when the former Vice Presidential candidate of the party is villified and demonized by such a substantial and vocal portion of the party's fanatical activist base, the party has changed in a very visible way. Bush Derangement Syndrome has replaced what little logic and reason was still left among the Democrat masses...
The "mainstream" (far left leadership who are represented as such by the MSM) RATS don't consider them to be "real" Democrats, just as the NAACP does not consider conservative blacks to be "real" blacks!
Is this an Onion article ???
george will wrote recently about beinart and his foreign policy views. i used to get the new republic, and they do tend towards a dem version of neo-conservativism--they tend to support foreign intervention in the middle east.
and moveon is working against lieberman.
there is a battle going on, but it is unclear to me how much power the dem neo-cons have.
Anyone who does not stick to the hardline liberal agenda will be thrown overboard. Deviation is not allowed. Look at Hillary Clinton, even the tinfoil hatters are turning against her.
Aren't they called neorats?
Well it would be nice to know that there are people on the other side that aren't traitors,commies,cowards,and surrender monkeys. However even if there is a crowd of scoop Jackson democrats out there they are not long for this world. Look at the tar and feathering of one of the last electable democrats Joe Lieberman. Nope no comeback of liberal hawks anytime soon, just a few post mortum twitches.
Reference to Liberman? or are they using the Reagan's definition of "NeoCon".
Not rats but the cats. Read this:
Cats have the seemingly unique ability to orient themselves in a fall
Neo"conservatives" will stay at the top.
Neocons have one thing in mind - to control the foreign policy of both parties. A prior generation of today's neocons successfully rode the Communism wagon as Democrats for the internationalist vehicle. When the red wagon ran out of drive, they successfully crossdressed as Conservatives and used market capitalism to control foreign policy. Their hold on the GOP is strong. Now they sense that the Democrats may jump their internationalist bent and hasten to return to right that ship. All your USA foreign policy 'belong to them'.
