Democrats call Zarqawi killing a stunt
The Washington Times ^ | 4:09 p.m., June 8, 2006 | Amy Fagan

Posted on 06/08/2006 2:56:43 PM PDT by seamus

Some Democrats, breaking ranks from their leadership, today said the death of terrorist leader Abu Musab Zarqawi in Iraq was a stunt to divert attention from an unpopular and hopeless war.

"This is just to cover Bush's [rear] so he doesn't have to answer" for Iraqi civilians being killed by the U.S. military and his own sagging poll numbers, said Rep. Pete Stark, California Democrat. "Iraq is still a mess -- get out."

Who, really, is surprised? I'm shocked it took some Dems several hours to say such things. They're usually quicker on the draw.

The Democrats are sooooo much easier to defeat when they reveal their true colors to the American people. It's good that some of them have come out of the closet about their feelings toward al Zarquai and the war on terror.

Seriously, he sounds like he could be reading al Qaeda's website message out loud.

He is NOT on America's side in this war, or any other.

The DNC was really hoping the war on terror wouldn't be on the agenda this November.

The Democrats want Bush to fail in Iraq, so they are naturally disappointed that their allies, the terrorists, are being killed.

The more that America really sees what is in the heart of Democrats, the more they will continue to turn away from the democratic party. Honorable Democrats like, Truman, Humphrey. Lieberman to name three have got to be sickened by traitorous people like Fortney Stark.

I'm kinda surprised the Bush administration hasn't been keeping this dude in hiding only to be brought out right before the November elections. The fact that they killed him is bad politics, isn't it? These Rats cease to amaze me. Be happy once in awhile. Your sour mood is bringing down the whole country.

Stark - "Irag is still a mess - get out!"

Remember that prof who recently wrote an article claiming that Bush - in saying that "some people" want immediate withdrawal from Iraq - was setting up non-existent "straw men" to contrast to his "realistic" position? That prof claimed that no one in the political mainstream was demanding an immediate withdrawal from Iraq. Well, Stark shows the prof is wrong, and Stark isn't the only example.

The day Bin Laden will be served up on a platter with an apple in his mouth, the Dems will come out and say it was staged by the Republicans to make Bush look good.

These people not only have no original ideas, they have no original thoughts.

"This is just to cover Bush's [rear] so he doesn't have to answer" for Iraqi civilians being killed by the U.S. military and his own sagging poll numbers, said Rep. Pete Stark, California Democrat.

Stark (which is short for StarkRavingMad) is obviously too blinded by partisanship to realize the inherent contradiction in his statement. His implication is that Bush could have killed Zarqawi at any time, but chose to do it at exactly this moment "so he doesn't have to answer for Iraqi civilians being killed by the U.S. military and his own sagging poll numbers."

Gee, Pete, I know I'm not as smart as you are (although I'll match SAT scores with you for ten bucks a point), but if Bush could have killed Zarqawi sooner, he would have killed Zarqawi sooner, and then his poll numbers wouldn't have been sagging so much.

Bush should have outlawed and banned the dem party when he took office in 00. The party is basically a criminal organization.

Ah...yeah...it's all a trick. In fact, no one was in that house when we dropped the bomb. We actually caught and killed Zarqawi 18 years ago and had his body frozen...and we thawed it out and put it in the house after the explosion...and Morgan Fairchild is my lover.

Only the nutcases who are Democrats to begin with could come up with such drivel.

I suppose when the world finally gets Bin Laden they will all call that a stunt too.

We will have to ship his body over here, and have all these Cindy Sheehan-kooks file by the open coffin, a spread of his pictures and a report of the DNA to convince them that it was not a stunt.

Please!! Save me from these people! They actually vote too!

The Democrats are getting desperate.

Desperation always overwhelms those in denial when truth comes crashing down on their deslusional paradigm.
