In Loco Parentis

Democratic Party members have to be wondering if their Party Mommies have been using too much loco weed (if that is actually possible).

Howard Dean, Democratic National Committee Chairman on a San Antonio, Texas radio station:

The idea that we're going to win this war is an idea that unfortunately is just plain wrong.”

What we see today is very much like what was going on in Watergate. It turns out there is a lot of good evidence (??) that President Bush did not tell the truth when he was asking Congress for the power to go to war.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Representative John Murtha (D-Pa) agree with Dean and offer up the Democratic battle plan: to withdraw all U.S. troops in Iraq within six months and redeploy them to Kuwait and Okinawa. There they would peek over the hills at goings-on in Iraq (Okinawa??) ready to jump back into the fray like the cavalry coming to Custer’s rescue.

Many Democratic politicians are shaking in their boots as they listen to this lunacy. A Washington Post article (Jim VandeHei and Shalaigh Murray, 12/7/05) noted that Dean’s views “could reinforce popular perceptions that the party is weak on military matters.” Ya think?? Steyn calls them the Defeatocrats.

Representative Jim Marshall (D-Ga.): "Dean's take on Iraq makes even less sense than the scream in Iowa: Both are uninformed and unhelpful."

Democratic strategist’s goals are to provide the Party maneuvering room so that Democrats can adjust their positions as conditions in Iraq change, meanwhile blaming Bush for misleading the country into a war without a victory plan.

This is how the Dem’s see the war. It’s Vietnam redux and a political opportunity to win back the House in 2006, and (heaven forbid!) the presidency in 2008. And guess who thinks he should be the Democratic candidate?

John Kerry, Democratic Senator and failed candidate for president (who, you may remember, once served in that Vietnam unpleasantness, including a covert Christmas in Cambodia) to Bob Schieffer on Face the Nation:

“And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the -- of -- of -- of -- historical customs, religious customs, whether you like it or not. Iraqis should be doing that.”

Here is John Kerry once again accusing the US troops of “terrorizing” women and children just like when he came back from Vietnam and lied about atrocities that he never saw. Kerry in 1971: “They told the stories of times that they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in the fashion reminiscent of Jen-giss [sic] Khan, not isolated incidents, but crimes committed on a day-to-day basis with a full awareness of officers at all leveled of command.”

It’s frightening that this man came so close to being our Commander in Chief.

The Democratic Party is in desperate need of some “parents” of the Daddy variety; Joe Lieberman needs some help.

Is it so pathetic to see Kerry soooo desperate, as well as teribly unattractive and impotent.

He's no leader.

Great post. It's clearly time for a little swift-boating.

We can all thank God it's Bush and Cheney's job, and not anyone else's, over the next 3 years to solve the awful problem they've created in Iraq.

Howard hitting the hippie lettuce?
That could explain a few things.

The strategy of our enemy (the democratic party) must be to adhere to the old adage that if you tell a lie often enough, people believe it.

Our own Republican party has to do some soul-searching and make things right again (i.e. stop spending like drunken democrats), but God help us as a Nation, and God help all freedom-loving people, if the democrats take control again. We simply cannot let that happen.
