House Minority Leader Richard A. Gephardt backed away yesterday from earlier suggestions that President Bush had failed to act on warnings that might have prevented the September 11 attacks.
"I never, ever, ever thought that anybody, including the president, did anything up to September 11 other than their best," the Missouri Democrat said on "Fox News Sunday."

This crap from the Dems would have worked like a charm (and did) as little as 6-8 years ago. Now it gets refuted almost before it gains any traction, and the snakes head back into the tall grass, waiting, hoping, praying for something, ANYTHING they can pounce on. It hasn't happened yet, but they keep hoping, and "we" keep countering with the truth. The only people who end up believing their garbage are the "true believers" (actually, they don't believe it either but they lie for a living), and the rapidly dwindling number of people who rely on the network news for their info.
Now, Dickie, get back under that rock where you belong.
Hee Hee is right!!! Mr. Congressman, Sir, words matter. Unless you continually contradict yourself, in which case, nothing you say matters.
1--The popularity of Fox News. The Dems have never experienced fair and balanced before, and without the networks doing their bidding in spinning, the task is harder. Some arguments evaporate in the light of truth and don't stand up to the slightest logical challenge.
2--W. Bush is NOT is father. He's a banty rooster and not a pushover or "let's rise above this" gentleman. He called them on their act and nipped their criticisms in the bud.
It also doesn't hurt to have the history of Clinton's failures in the past as well as the facts of the Democrats' pre-Sept 11 security briefings. They must have realized that they are culpable for their own failures to connect the dots as well as liable if any of their rantings result in security leaks and compromise.
There's a big difference between questions and lying accusations.
No mas! No mas!
They got hit with a TKO. First Condi Rice, then Cheney, then Laura and George Bush pounded them. Democrats have no one of the stature of any of them and then know it. They were afraid of what was next (thank you Dick Cheney). As you say, they relied on the media and found out fast that was not going to work.
Keep throwing anything they can come up with until something sticks.If they miss, back off, deny they meant it and try something else.
Not only no integrity, but no conviction, and no courage to back up their mouth!
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING. YOU CAN'T EVEN LIE WITHOUT GETTING CAUGHT.
STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES.
Then I take a deep breath and realize that they're slowly doing the job on themselves and their lying, self-serving BS is being seen for what it is and the American people, for the most part, get it.
or if that doesn't work...http://www.arkdems.org/cgi-bin/FormMail.pl
If you would like to contact them you can use 72203 as a zip code for Little Rock, AR. Any street will do(such as Clinton Avenue). They aren't smart enough to figure it out.
Day 2: Polls. Bush at 75% popularity; infomation shows DEMS were briefed.
Day 3: "Let's not be so quick here. No one could have known."
Day 4: Bill Clinton says, "Hey, I just read about Osama Bin Laden when I picked up the paper today."
The White House looked bad on this because they overreacted.
I swear he has said overreacted 5 times in the last minute.
I guess they have decided this is the best tack to take, since their attempt failed. I see also Newsweek is portraying an administration in disarray, overreacting, and that Bush will have to stop being so secret.
I really, really loathe these people.
The Republican strategist (I don't remember his name) was talking about The Gore airline security report that was voted down in Congress. He said that the reason was "racial profiling."
Joe Lockhart immediately said, "the Republicans didn't want to hand Al Gore a major policy victory during the election, that's why it was voted down."
How small... How stupid... How idiotic....
I don't have the words to tell you my rage and loathing. Why does everything have to be defined by the Clinton Administration? Why would you even what to defend that man?
I'm not done calling and venting....
But, I'm with you... I simply loathe these people.
Once Hillary saw that intimidation was not going to work, and that any investigation would highlight hubby she backed off. It helps that the Pubs have Dick Cheney to come out and besides putting out the fire, to look so at ease and confident as he's grilled by Russert. Compare his performance to Gephardt's with Brit and who do you think the people will believe?
