Posted on 11/04/2006 11:48:08 AM PST by FairOpinion
Today's Democrats are nothing like Presidents Roosevelt, Truman and Kennedy, who with courage and decisive action kept on top of their jobs and aggressively confronted one national defense crisis after another.
We're in a war. Something always goes wrong in a war, and our military leaders have made mistakes in Iraq. But quitting and leaving would amount to defeat for the U.S. in the global war on terrorism and create chaos. Quitters never win.
However, (97) when it comes to which party has proved more capable in acting to defend and protect Americans from foreign enemies, there is only one choice. From Johnson to Carter to Clinton, virtually all the defense policies and decisions made by Democratic administrations have been unsuccessful. And in many cases, they have unintentionally but materially increased the danger to our national security and the safety of all Americans.

Shades of Bill Clinton's campaign slogan from 1992: "We need change"
He never defined what that change would be, just that we needed change for some obscure reason. An empty slogan which resulted in what we are now mired in today.
Just saw this terrific ad< "Wiretap":
"This terrorist wiretap has been disconnected by the Dem Congress...."
Watch it here:
It's really great!
Is there a difference between the two ?
98) They are 100% politically motivated.
If the Dems were to take either house, it would be a nightmarish scenario.
They just. don't. get it.
It's just politics to them. Another tool they can use to try to regain the power they believe is rightfully theirs.
They don't understand the stakes and their ignorance could get us all killed.
CHANGE. The clarion call of the left. It sounds good until you really think about it, though doesn't it? To hope that "change" can make things better?
The problem of course is that "change" is a misleading promise.
Because "change" in and of itself has no value judgment...it is neither good nor bad.
So yes...we can guarantee that the Democrats are right on one thing...there would be change if they won. The problem of course is that while they're lauding "change" as the reason to vote for them, I contest that the kind of "change" they'd bring about would create chaos and only make things worse.
They don't understand the stakes nor have a grasp on the true threat that faces us.
Without that kind of clarity, any "change" they wrought would be catastrophic.
Not A Kennedy. John F. Kennedy. And it is a moot point he is, after all, dead.
"...It's time we recognized the nature of the conflict. It's total war and we are all involved. Nobody on our side is exempted because of age, gender, or handicap. The Islamofacists have stolen childhood from the world." [FReeper Retief]
"...That the totalitarian force pitted against freedom wears a religious makes this civil war among mankind all the more difficult to engage. Loving freedom as we do, it seems reprehensible to deliberate against a religion. But this is no ordinary religion as it demands absolute obedience of all to their religion at the cost of freedom itself." [FReeper Backtothestreets]
I lurk. Your pings are not wasted, my Friend.
Excellent video ~ thank you.
Also, excellent post by Mo1
That is a great ad!
What the US Army recruiting poster under "President" Kerry would look like:
Our brave warriors n Irak respond to Jon Carry"
Kerry is no different re his hatred of a strong America and our warriors than 99.9% of the rats in congress. Every rat running for election should have to face a copy of this banner everytime they show their treasonous faces. Pelosi, Murtha, Clintoon, Boxer, Kennedy, Durbin, Levin, Rangle, Reid and other rats in congress hate our military and a strong America. Just look at their voting records the past two years as President Bush pointed out this week.
Kerry is shown leading his fellow hate America and our military Rats to their final destination in American Politics:
(John Kerry picked the wrong people to insult.)
I can't help but feel the real shame is on us, the American voters. We continue to let our troops, our heritage and our nation down by sending the dreggs of our society to represent us at the highest levels and portray our image and soul around the globe.
My GOD- how low have we slipped when we elect murderers, admitted war criminals and traitors to the highest body in our government?
Kerry in one of his many acts of treason after his very short Nam tour.
Vote against all traitors this election day. Support our troops and their CIC, President Bush.
I'd vote for the miniature Pommeranian that lives in the house up the street from me before I'd vote DimRAT!
