"The Heretical Housewife"
The endless barrage of bombast continues. For weeks, months, years even - the tireless whining continues. The media and the Democrats seem to be simply unable to accept and celebrate any good news whatsoever, if the credit will append to President Bush. The recent stunning victory in Iraq? A budding quagmire according to the Left. The successful operation against Saddams odious offspring? We should have taken them alive whined the Dems. Representative Charlie Rangel (D-NY) even went so far as to suggest that it was against United States policy to assassinate foreign leaders.
Virulent hatred of George W. Bush (in Rose Garden July 29th, right) has infected the leftists brains - making them more porous than usual and riddling them with rampant conspiracy disease. The latest flap over Bushs State of the Union speech provides the perfect example. Sixteen words that the President said, shouldnt have been included into the speech quickly morphed into the Bush lied campaign - with the media pundits slyly using the loaded Watergate reference what did the President know and when did he know it. The ludicrousness of this effort to paint Bush as a dishonorable liar assumes even more hilarity when one considers that these same people were tireless defenders of the accomplished and congenital liar, their hero Bill Clinton. However, this effort, like those which preceded it, failed - as indicated by a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll which gives the President roughly a 60% approval rating.
The Democrats are seething in an almost hysterical panic. Really, why shouldnt they be? In the last 9 years, theyve lost the House, the Senate, most state governorships and a wide variety of local seats. Reflexively, and with increasing bitterness, they oppose almost everything that George W. Bush does. Good news for the country, as Rush Limbaugh is fond of saying, means bad news for leftist Democrats.
For years, with mainstream media boostering, the Left wing agenda has remained paramount, with the country sliding inexorably into a position which is more in line with socialist France and highly at odds with traditional American beliefs. Deeply committed to moral relativism and hedonism, the liberals are at odds with just about everything religious, despite the fact that 80% of Americans classify themselves as believing in God. The libs are in the unenviable position of being anti-military and anti-war, while being pro-pornography and pro-sodomy. They express compassion and empathy for convicted murderers, but none for unborn children. They continually want the United States to kowtow to the fascist tinpot dictators at the U.N. and spurn legitimate national sovereignty concerns as being plebeian. That, coupled with their virulent anti-Americanism makes them increasingly undesirable to the average American voter.
The crowd of the disaffected becomes increasingly more so. The radical Left - about 30% of the party - assumes that their problems ensue from the voter not getting their message and urges a further, Howard Dean-like lurch to the Left. Dean himself reminds one of the clueless George Mc Govern, who stated today on Sean Hannitys radio show that he would cut 10% of the U.S. defense budget every year. Mc Govern further stated that, terrorism is not a military problem, further illustrating just how addled this old guy has become. The liberals have not learned one thing - for them its still September 10th.
Most Americans today are exceedingly concerned about terrorism and the personal safety of themselves and their families. The thugs in the Middle East, and in the nations that threaten us with terrorism or nuclear bombs, cannot be appeased and they cannot be negotiated with. This timeless lesson has proven itself true in every war that any country has ever been engaged in. The only thing the bully knows is force. Appeasement is considered a weakness, and the appeaser considered a sap. Yet, the Neville Chamberlains still persist, and theyre all in the Democratic Party. Bill Clintons halfhearted attempts to respond to terrorism did nothing but embolden Usama and Saddam, and the terrorist attacks steadily increased.
George W. Bush determined to do something about it, and he has, with stunning success. Just another reason for the lefties to hate him, which they do, viscerally and with increasing looniness. Bitterness and scorn, however, are not very appealing characteristics and George W. Bushs sunny optimism stands in sharp contrast to the whining of the libs. Plus, Bushs strategerey keeps on winning the day and making them look even more like fools.
Reportedly, one of the last communications from the late, unlamented Uday Hussein went something like this, This time, I think the Americans are serious. Bush is not Clinton. I think this is the end.
Kind of sums it up, doesn't it? ***

Classic feminist definition of sexual harassment, which has ruined many a man's career and reputation. At the very least, it was repugnant and abusive behavior.
Yet, the feminists were silent, because Bill protected their premiere sacrament - partial birth abortion.
klinton deserved (and still deserves) a million times more "bashing" than he's received. The "conspiracies" associated with the liar in briefs' public "service" (he surely gave a new meaning to that term) were real crimes excused by the lapdog press (his ultraliberal fan club) and others (you perhaps) who have not realized that the "sixties" are waaay over.
Your baseless comments are simply more typical liberal equivocation!
It usually helps in a fight if your opponent loses control. The Dims are so angry right now they can't think straight, and keep making mistakes like, hey, lets bash Bush on national security, or we lost in 2002 because we weren't liberal enough. I hope they stay good and angry.
My question is why do they hate him more than Reagan?
And I think the answer is, because in many ways he is a far bigger threat than Reagan ever was: Bush has the potential to totally deconstruct the modern Democratic Party, and they know it. In the next election he'll gain some blacks, gain some Hispanics, and gain some Jews. These won't be landslide numbers, but if he merely gets 15% of the black vote and 38-40% of the Hispanic vote, it will be a crippling blow not just to the top of the ticket, but all the way down.
I am glad we allowed a lady to remain a lady. Thanks for all you do.
