The Washington Times today has a “we’re not Softees on terrorism” article about the Democrats, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi determined not to be “Swift-Boated:”
Part of national security, said the House’s top Democrat, is protecting the environment.
“We are advancing tough and smart national security policies to keep the American people safe,” said Mrs. Pelosi, adding that Democrats’ national security agenda aims “to fight terrorism and defeat it, stop the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, to stop global warming and any other threats to the safety and security of the American people.”
Kevin Madden, spokesman for House Majority Leader John A. Boehner, said the remark reflects a broader national security weakness by Democrats.
“The American people want a strong posture against the global scourge of terrorism and all Democrats can offer is Nancy Pelosi’s babble putting that fight on par with global warming,” he said.
Other rumored national security priorities for the Democrats: The war on poverty, Wal-Mart, and stopping media misrepresentations like ABC’s “Path to 9/11” miniseries.
