Prosecuting a War; Democrats vs. Republicans
Ever noticed how differently the prosecution of a war is treated when a Democratic President is Commander and Chief as opposed to a Republican Commander and Chief. The reaction by the press and outraged protesters is dramatically different and I for one know it’s not just coincidental.
Case in point when George Bush went to war with Iraq; Cindy Sheehan was all over the news protesting, her every move was covered including camping out in the ditch across from Bush’s Crawford Texas Ranch. The anti war mob was marching in the streets, Hillary Clinton openly mocked General David Petraeus as he testified before congress proclaiming to believe him required a willing suspension of disbelief; the New York Times even referred to General Petraeus as General Betray-us. Nancy Pelosi proclaimed the Iraq war a failure and Harry Reid proclaimed on the Senate Floor, "this war is lost"; even the Messiah himself, Barrack Hussein Obama ummhhhh-ummhh-ummh said in 2002, “I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by this administration to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne.” A far cry from this same Leader of our present Regime thumping his chest bragging how he personally and single handedly killed Osama Bin Laden.
Now this same crowd of prior conscientious objectors continues the policies of the previous administration, those same policies which led to the location and annihilation of Osama Bin Laden. Gitmo remains open; we are still in Iraq and Afghanistan; predator drones strike at will killing Al-Qaeda targets such as Anwar al Awlaki and not a peep from the usual crowd. Where’s the ACLU; Cindy, where are you camping out these days; where are the protesters, the modern day Jane Fonda’s?
Truth is the Democrats have a dual strategy when it comes to National Defense; while a Republican occupies the White House do whatever they can to sabotage the war effort. They couldn’t have been more demonstrative in waging their anti war campaign during the Bush era; now flash forward to the present Obama Regime and complete support and capitulation; support from those same anti war Senators and Congressmen/women along with total capitulation from the media and anti war left. All politics stop at the shore my ass!
So maybe you’re thinking I am saying we may be better off from a National Defense standpoint with a Democratic Administration; not true! Remember they are only able to successfully prosecute these two wars because of the weaponry built-up during Republican Administrations; remember Reagan and his Star Wars Concept? Well because of his vision and persistence we are reaping the benefits of those systems today. Democrats always want to cut defense and waste more money on social programs which keep people permanently locked in poverty but forever dependent on Big Democratic Government!
The fact is we are not better off in a National Defense sense or any other sense with a Democrat in the White House; we are better off when people exercise Good Sense and vote Democrats out of office all together! And yes Democrats, I am challenging your Patriotism!
