Bush on the Attack! / Senatorial Cowardice

Posted by Sal on November 14, 2005

President Bush, for the second (week)day in a row, lashed out at Democrats for their flip-flop on the war. If Bush keeps this up, this will be a losing issue for Democrats and Bush will regain the popularity he once enjoyed. The biggest problem with Bush has not been his foreign policy, but his defense of that policy. Bush needs to be an apologist for the War on Terror, and by extension the War in Iraq (yes, it is part of the War on Terror!).

In other news, the Senate Republicans continue to show their stripes and their cowardice, attempting to set limits on the length of time our troops can remain in Iraq. This measure is sponsored by Sens. Bill Frist and John Warner. Frist, by this move, has totally lost my support. First, in a short-sighted socialistic move, he called hearings for the Oil companies to explain their profits. Now, he is undermining our President and the most important issue of the day — the War on Terror. I am calling on Frist to step aside, and give the leadership of the Senate to someone more worthy of the post. We did not vote for Republicans so that they could become cowards.

There is a serious problem within the Republican party. It is called the “Moderates”. These moderates (previously known as ‘Rockafeller Republicans’) will take the party down and hand it back to the Democrats. Since Reagan, the Republican Party has stood for leadership, lower taxes, limited government, the Right to Life, a Strong Military and National Defense, and the empowerment of individuals to succeed. Now these moderates threaten to destroy that vision and turn the Republican Party into a watered-down version of the Democrats. Conservatives everywhere MUST speak out and let their voices be heard.

The Republican Party, which seemed so strong six months ago, now appears weak and in trouble. What the Republican Party needs now is for its strong voices to come forward and stand with the President, even in this time of Political difficulty. It is only by exhibiting strength and unity that the Republican Party will regain the trust of the American People. It is only through strong convictions, honesty, and perserverance, even through politically difficult times, that the Republican Party will flourish.

As Rush Limbaugh has said on many an occasion, (to paraphrase), “No one has written a book on ‘The Great Moderates of History'”.

Norman Podhoretz takes on a trip back in time that our liberal friends can’t seem to remember. Repeat after me kids: War is Wrong. . . Unless a Democrat is President

I’m Encouraged by Judge Alito

Posted by Mike on November 14, 2005

Judge Alito’s paper trail is certainly encouraging. I’ll admit it. I support a ban on abortion. It is unconscionable that one person should have a legal right to slaughter another human being. Overturning Roe v. Wade is appealing to me because it would be a first step to ending a silent holocaust.

But I also support judges who would probably overturn Roe for another reason. A judge who would overturn Roe shows great deference to the Constitution, the document which protects our liberties. The Constitution should always trump a wrongly decided case, especially one with grave consequences.

As a final thought I wonder, why should liberal judges have the ability to audaciously rewrite the constitution and then use stare decisis as an excuse to prevent intellectually honest judges from applying the constitution as written?

Racism is Racism – Except when it’s directed towards a Republican

Posted by Sal on November 14, 2005

More with Lt. Gov Michael Steele. Howard Dean on Sunday refused to condemn the racists attacks on the Steele, stating that the Republican Chair of the Maryland republican Party never apologized to him for calling him an anti-Semite.

Trouble is, the Chair of the Maryland Republican Party never did call Dean an anti-Semite.

So Democrats again get away with not condemning racists tactics.

Progress?

Posted by Mike on November 14, 2005

I live in New York City’s East Village. Rhode Islanders should imagine this area as a much larger version of Thayer Street after 11 p.m. on a Saturday night, but not as normal. This morning on my way to work I passed a parked car with a prominently displayed Bush-Cheney bumper sticker. Hopefully, the car won’t be destroyed by the area’s peaceful, loving and level-headed folks we know as liberals.

We’ll never win in the East Village but I can’t resist paraphrasing the ad libbing of a movie undoubtedly known to those who inhabit the East Village: “step by step, inch by inch, millimeter by **&^& millimeter.”
