If the Democrats are guilty of wanting to appease terrorists, Iran, North Korea, etc., etc., etc., then Bush is certainly guilty of appeasing Democrats. Am I the only one who is sick of his nice guy attitude? Hasn't he learned to take critism from the press by now?? I can understand he's weary of it, but no amount of apologizing or trying to work with them ever does him any good. It's the whole "you give them an inch, they take a mile" thing - they won't compromise with you. If you try to work with them a little, they'll continue their bloodlust attempt at your destruction - you've just made it that much easier for them.
Ann illustrates this in her latest post focusing on the ridiculous fake controversy of the fired U.S. attorneys.
Democrats have the breathtaking audacity to claim that Bush's replacing his own political appointees is "politicizing prosecutions."
They say this as Sandy Berger walks free after stealing and destroying top-secret national security documents — but Lewis "Scooter" Libby faces decades in prison for )not outing a covert agent. (Let's hope he's learned his lesson!)
They say this as Rep. William "The Refrigerator" Jefferson sits on the Homeland Security Committee while waiting for the $100,000 found in his freezer to thaw — but Tom DeLay remains under an indictment by some hick prosecutor in Texas for an alleged accounting violation.
They say this as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid draws interest on the sale of a property he sold in a complicated land swindle — but American hero Randy "Duke" Cunningham rots in prison.
They say this while Sen. Chuck Schumer pays no price whatsoever for his Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee having illegally obtained a copy of Republican Lt. Gov. Michael Steele's credit report, for which one employee, Lauren Weiner, pleaded guilty, but served no prison time.
They say this while Sen. Teddy Kennedy is still at large (and getting larger).
Democrats have created a world in which a DNC card is a "get out of jail free" card, and "guilt beyond a reasonable doubt" means "no doubt the defendant is Republican." (If Democrats keep this up, they'll have to rethink their push to give inmates the right to vote.)
