Lefties and Dems: What If You're Wrong?

You’ve been relentless in your all-out assault on President Bush, and it has taken a toll on his poll numbers.

Your weapons have been lies, as in “Bush Lied, Thousands Died,” when you know your own party viewed Saddam as a threat and also believed that he had WMDs.

Your weapons have included assaults on the honor and integrity of U.S. troops fighting this war. Durbin compared them to Nazis; Kerry claimed they terrorized innocent Iraqis.

Your weapons included Abu Ghraib, again and again and again on the front pages of left-leaning newspapers. New photos published with glee. False charges that the abuses there were institutional, rather than the actions of a handful of troops gone bad.

Your weapons have included denial… refusing to print any side of the story that doesn’t fit your view of reality, no matter how compelling the facts. If it hurts Bush, run it. Doesn’t matter if it is even factual. From day one, you have dismissed the mounting and compelling evidence that Saddam had WMDs and shipped them to Syria before the war. You deny the words that have come out of Saddam’s own mouth in his recordings, words that confirm his WMD programs and ties to terrorism. You have denied or dismissed the numerous contacts between al Qaeda and Saddam’s Iraq that dated to the 1990s, including some reports that the 9/11 hijackers met with Iraqi intelligence before the attacks on America. Yet you print anything that reflects poorly on the United States, our troops and President Bush.

Your weapons have included publishing secret information that hampers our ability to protect the nation and pursue the war to a successful conclusion.

You oppose the interception of communications between known terrorists abroad and their contacts in the United States, even to the point of suggesting the president be impeached over the program.

You want to win the next election at all costs, yet you offer no plan whatsoever for handling Islamic terror, because you know that to offer a plan means taking a stance, and you don’t want to alienate either the cut-and-run crowd or those Democrats who know we are in a war against terrorists who want to kill us and that any retreat only emboldens the murderers. So you stand for nothing, splitting the difference, talking out of both sides of your mouth.

You will oppose any action against Iran, even if it means their gaining nuclear weapons that may then be given to terrorists to use against us. You apparently distrust President Bush more than you do the Iranian fascists and the terrorists.

But, what if you’re wrong? What if this is a fight that we must continue until the scourge of terror is wiped from the face of the Earth and Islamofascists and their supporting states realize that there is no percentage in attacking the United States? What if a nuclear device goes off in a U.S. city because you cared more about playing politics and hating the duly elected President of the United States than you did about protecting the nation and its people? What will you say then? When it is too late…

I haven't been wrong yet. I did everything I could to prevent the war, because even before it started the lies had been exposed. I knew it was the worst presidential decisons in our history, and nothing yet has prven me wrong. Remember how it was going to cost a billion or two and we would be greeted with flowers? Remember when the mission was "accomplished"? What mission was that and why didn't anything improve?

I see that you have a little problem with the truth. You make claims about Durbin and Kerry that certainly match the talking points, even though they are not true. You should read their actual words, not what others say about them.

As a veteran, I am repulsed by the vicious slurs cast by a deserter like Mr. Bush upon the meritorious service of John Kerry. John Kerry killed people because his country asked him to, and he risked his life to save others. GW Bush deserted his unit when he was not even in danger.

If you think it was a good idea to invade Iraq, do what I did in the '60s. Serve your country in a time of war. Contrary to the GOP talking points, honoring the troops does not mean sending them to meaningless deaths.

Regarding the violations of FISA, the president admitted violating the law, and gave the excuse that it was somehow inconvenient to obey it, so any claim that he has not violated the Fourth Amendment is contradicted by the president himself.

Would you hold this president to the same "rule of law" that impeached Bill Clinton for telling a lie that was not a crime about an event that was not a crime?

The right-wing capacity for excusing wholesale violations on the part of Mr. Bush, after impeaching Bill Clinton for something that was none of the public's business is sickening. How do you sleep at night?
