    Dishing, But Not Taking

    Dishing, But Not Taking

    Having lied for months, if not years, about the President and the way the war in Iraq began, Democrats are now outraged -- outraged! -- that the Republicans actually forced them to do what elected representatives are supposed to do, i.e. vote on whether the USA should withdraw from Iraq. After all, it's so much easier to complain about the war than actually having to take a position on it -- especially when the whole country might be watching.

    After months of calling the President a liar, Democrats seem inordinately sensitive to charges that they are the forces of retreat -- which they are today, just as many of them were in Vietnam.

    Here is an excerpt from the linked AP piece, showing the House Dems at their tolerant best:

    Democrats booed and shouted her down - causing the House to come to a standstill.

    Rep. Harold Ford, D-Tenn., charged across the chamber's center aisle screaming that it was an uncalled for personal attack. "You guys are pathetic. Pathetic," yelled Rep. Marty Meehan, D-Mass.

    Wow. That's a lot of dignity emanating from the left. Best of all is John Kerry, who ponderously intoned, "I won't stand for the swift-boating of Jack Murtha." Well, Senator Kerry, last I checked, you hadn't actually ever responded to the real questions about your war record the Swift Boat vets raised, including your Christmas in Cambodia fable.

    Gotta love the left -- good at dishing it, not so good at taking it. Funny how much less they like the "personal attacks" when they're directed at them, rather than at President Bush.

    Why not show the whole article rather than just bits and pieces you like to emphasize twisting the meaning of the article from it's original intent?

    What you failed to add was why they booed the Republicans. And in all honesty, I don't blame them for doing what they did. It seems to be okay to call a Vietnam veteran a coward who likes to "cut and run", but then it's un-American and unpatriotic to question Bush and his administration.

    And what kind of bravery does it take to sit at home and make a phone call and call someone a coward? Is he out in Iraq fighting the war? No, he's just sitting at home, having a drink, smoking a cigar, calling the shots and reaping the benefits right?

    If the repugs did anything, they showed how stupid and insensative they can be towards our troops and our country by putting up a resolution on something as serious as WAR and giving each member of the house less than 9 seconds to speak on it. Also to put up a resolution with no debate or committe discussion makes them look dumber than they appear. I am so glad that they said what they did about Mr.Murtha on tv for the world to see, because it will hurt them bad in 06 and 08. Hell almost everyone in the repug party up for re-election does not want to be seen with the president. WHY IS THAT? Incompetence is dangerous and they do not want the voters in their states to see them next to it.

    I guess Grim decided that my posting the article and NOT a comment off some right wing blog was not good enough.


    Grim, for someone who says he is so patriotic, I'm surprised that you would actually think that it's OK for anyone to publically INSULT a "Vietnam combat veteran and one of the House's most respected members on military matters."

    I thought you said once that you stood behind our service men and women. Will you turn on the ones serving now in 20 or 30 as well if they don't happen to share your narrow minded views?
