What to do with the news that a terrorist master responsible for the murder of untold numbers of American servicemen and women has been killed? Well, for many Democrats, that was a question that actually required thought before being answered.
No instantaneous rejoicing. No thankfulness that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was sent to his maker courtesy of 1,000 pounds of American-made munitions delivered via F-16. No, the first reaction of many Democrats was either worry or disdain. Worry over how to spin a response so that it brings maximum political advantage, and disdain that the U.S. military had a victory on President Bush’s watch. The other reaction was incredulity. Some Democrats believe the whole story was fabricated by the military to distract from the “truth” of Bush’s failure as a President.p>Consider the following comments made by actual Democrats: br> /p> blockquote>Am I the only one who thinks this is one big scam on America and the world, to make it look like they “killed a main terrorist” and rid the world of an evil person?” p>They said they identified the so called body with his fingerprints, where did they get Zarqawi’s finger prints? I know he was supposedly jailed in Jordan for a while. Do they keep fingerprints on everyone in the world? This news comes as the marriage amendment failed….again Bush’s poll numbers are slipping faster then a speeding nascar. I don’t buy it.” br> — “Wahoo,” a poster on Democrats.com /p> p>Understandably, there is a lot of media coverage on Zarqawi today. In all the hours and hours of coverage, has anyone mentioned that the President could have killed Zarqawi before the Iraq War but chose not to? br> — “Georgia10,” a poster on DailyKos /p>
Zarqawi was quite probably a psy ops job in the first place, so what does that make his “death”?
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
