“We have met the enemy and he is us.” Never were these words more true than they are today. Mr. Babbin is spot on in everything that he has said here. My problem is this, why haven’t we heard this day after day and multiple times each day from everyone in the administration starting with George Bush?
Bush came out of hibernation a couple of weeks back and gave a few strong speeches. Now we have had the SOTU speech and, it seems, that Bush is scurrying back to his “new tone,” rope-a-dope mode.
Where is the Bush “war room” to handle charges and lies by the political opposition? When is Bush going to finally realize and admit that a charge left unanswered is a powerful IED causing casualties to the administration, and indeed, to the whole American body politic? Bush, by his behavior, has taught the Dems that they and their pr firm, known as the MSM, have nothing to fear from the Bushies. The public sees charges going unrebutted and says, “Well, there must be some truth to the charges.”
Where are the prosecutions of betrayers of the nations secrets, whether they be prominent Dems or not? Why does the White House refuse to name names in the few and mild responses to scurrilous political posturing that undermines our so called “War on Terror”? And while I am at it, why do Bush and Rove insist on rewarding liberal Repub cut throats, like Specter, Chafee, et al„ when they have true conservative Repubs (not RINOs) willing to take on these liberal moles within our ranks? Bush helped defeat Specter’s Repub opposition. The White House is working as hard as it can to insure a primary win for Chafee. They tried everything that they could to keep Bush loyalist Katherine Harris off the ballot in Florida.p>In 1776, it was said that we would have a republic, if we could keep it. It does seem to me that we are in the process of throwing away that chance to keep it. I can not think of a single conflict, armed or political, that has been won be someone with one hand tied behind his back while the opponent used both hands and all possible weapons and tactics. Bush damn well better wake up and smell the coffee, because Iran is about to raise the ante, on the theory that we are too timid and divided to dare go “all in.”
