Democrat Barbarians

Barbarians
Here are two paragraphs from Jed Babbin's "Outside Agitators" that quicken the pulse.
1.
To damage Mr. Bush -- and perhaps install a Democratic Congress that would thwart his every move -- our adversaries need to create doubt in voters' minds and time their plays to be close enough to the election to prevent an effective response. To say that terrorists and adversary nations want to hobble the president with a Democrat Congress is not to say that the Dems are in league with bin Laden or Kim Jong-il. They're not. But those who would benefit most from Congressional actions such as hobbling the NSA terrorist surveillance program or reducing funds for the Iraq battle aren't America's friends. Who benefits most from blocking the appointment of conservative judges who reject the application of European law to American cases? It's not the ACLU: it's nations that sponsor terrorism and want it to be a matter for the Justice Department to handle, not the Pentagon.

2.
It's a very good thing that Osama bin Laden isn't as smart as he thinks he is. If he were, he'd send one of those European-looking al-Q members to Havana to kill Castro. With Fidel dead and the assassin suitably shot to pieces, the world would be in an instant uproar, and we'd see a media feeding frenzy in Turtle Bay that would make the UN look like the courthouse in the Michael Jackson trial. America would be blamed and Chavez (Fidel's most ardent admirer and greatest supporter since Brezhnev) would go to Havana personally to supervise the restoration of the Castro regime. The Cuban-American community would be up in arms -- literally -- and President Bush would be caught in the middle. And what a fine mess that would be. Like I said, it's a good thing OBL isn't that smart. But both Bad Vlad Putin and his funny-named sidekick, Hu Jintao, are.

The most serious consequence of a Democrat takeover of Congress (which I doubt will happen) has in large part already occurred.  It is absolutely critical to the interests of the United States, first, and the rest of the world, incidentally, that Iraq be secured, no matter how long it takes, and no matter what methods are required.  We're already seeing signs that the Administration has blinked  in the face of torrential criticism by Democrats, and their attendant media.

 If the House of  Representatives falls under Democrat control,  it's almost certain they will cut funding, just as Democrats did in Vietnam.  The United States, and the world as we knew it, will end permanently on that note.  We'll enter periods of negotiating with terrorists under Democrats, guided by the UN, and savage defensive military action under Republicans.  It gets worse from there.

well done...

so sadly true...

pretty pathetic...

but not over...

Without CNN, ABC, CBS, NY Times, NBC, MSNBC, HBO, PBS, NPR, WAPO, Newsweek, Time, the DNC would be fading from memory.

Thank you for writing "Democrat" rather than "Democratic". It really pisses me off when people mis-use their name....
