Vice President Dick Cheney is at it again. Once again, the self-proclaimed "enforcer" is shooting recklessly, arrogantly disparaging the patriotism of those who oppose the continued escalation of troops in Iraq. While most Americans express lingering doubts over U.S. ability to end the sectarian violence in the near future, Mr. Cheney has taken aim at two new targets in the House: Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and Rep. Jack Murtha of Pennsylvania.
In a recent statement, the vice president said, "If we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and...

Well, Ms. Brazile, by that same logic, since you and many of your left-wing nut-jobs have never been in the military, you have no right commenting about what's it like ot be in the military or what those in the military feel or go through.
So in the words of this former military guy... shut the "F" up.
She's still full of glee from Algore convocation last night.
Wonder how DB got this past Tony Blankley. Dont real WT that much but have never seen such a left piece.
Some flak was to be expected but what Dems don't want to talk about isn't the troop withdrawal, but all the other things the left has done to torpedo the war effort. It may not be unpatriotic to oppose the surge, but most of the other stuff that leads to lefties' instinctive, rather than thoughtful opposition to it are indeed unpatrotic.
Guess that Brazile was absent from school the day that they taught reading comprehension and critical thinking skills. Brazile's interpretation of the Vice President's actual words is simply false and unsupported.
What the Vice President stated was that if Murtha's and Pelosi's plan were to be followed, it would validate the Al Quaeda strategy. That was a statement of fact that can be easily verified by reviewing Al Quaeda strategy documents that have been uncovered, and then applying reading comprehension and critical thinking skills to understand that strategy. He did not state that Murtha and Pelosi are traitors. He did not question their patriotism. He did not state that unless you go along with the President's strategy, you are considered to be a traitor. He said none of those things. The Vice President's statement leaves plenty of room for alternative "solutions" to be put forward, by Murtha, Pelosi, or anybody else. However the Vice President correctly and accurately characterized Murtha's and Pelosi's current policy suggestions.
As usual, when you report the actual words and plans of Democrats, they consider that to be an unfair attack. Brazile is simply another Democrat liar - but I repeat myself...
Madonna on her worst day couldn't have dreamt of an 'outfit' such as that. Geesh.
