Well the Orange man is leading the republican charge from the parallel universe in which they reside
"Yes, we have been lucky," House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (Ohio) said Thursday, "but luck is not an effective strategy for fighting terrorism."
Yep, you were so unlucky on 9-11
Despite being warned:
The following is a redacted text of the presidential daily briefing from August 6, 2001:
Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.
Clandestine, foreign government, and media reports indicate Bin Laden since 1997 has wanted to conduct terrorist attacks in the U.S. Bin Laden implied in U.S. television interviews in 1997 and 1998 that his followers would follow the example of World Trade Center bomber Ramzi Yousef and "bring the fighting to America." :
Forget August; the warnings had been going on since 1997.
Unlucky, my ass.
What are you really trying to say John?
Let me help you out:
"It's a sad day when the terrorists fail to make the Democrat Party look bad, we the Republicans will keep on hoping our luck will change. One day a terrorist not only will prove competent, but will also escape justice. Then we can finally lay the Bin Laden fiasco to rest".
~What John A Boehner really meant to say.
Something like that?
So the terrorists must suceed so your policy of:
Whatever the merits of their argument -- and, where terrorism is concerned, it is prudent to keep cockiness at bay -- there is a political imperative at work as well. "Democrats are always suspect on national security, and anything that makes them look weak on national security creates an opportunity for Republicans," said Whit Ayres, a GOP pollster.
has a chance of working.
I'm so tired of the Republican party getting away with this hypocrisy, and nobody in the MSM is calling them out on it daily.
So I will.
The Republican Party praying everyday for:
The terrorists to succeed.
You scream about Miranda rights like Krauthammer does today in his WaPoscreed:
All well and good. But what if Faisal Shahzad, the confessed Times Square bomber, had stopped talking? When you tell someone he has the right to remain silent, there is a distinct possibility that he will remain silent, is there not? And then what?
You just hope they wont talk, so you can justify torture once again.
DURING THE LAST FEW WEEKS in Washington the pieties about torture have lain so thick in the air that it has been impossible to have a reasoned discussion. The McCain amendment that would ban "cruel, inhuman, or degrading" treatment of any prisoner by any agent of the United States sailed through the Senate by a vote of 90-9. The Washington establishment remains stunned that nine such retrograde, morally inert persons--let alone senators--could be found in this noble capital.
When will Americans get it?
The Republicans must not be allowed anywhere near the White House, nor congressional majorities for a very long time.
Until they actually start wanting us to succeed [and this would be a good starting point in proving their sanity]; then I say don't vote for them.
