Leftists love to call President Bush a "chickenhawk" because he never fought in a war. That's really clever, isn't it? When it comes to name-calling and finger-pointing, Democrats have no equal.
But when it comes to taking a firm stand against a certified nut-ball who brags about developing nuclear weapons, the Democrats balk, saying that they don't wish a "rush to judgment." Bullshit. The cowardly turds are just laying low to see which way the political wind blows before they decide how to react. That's real leadership.
Asked about Democratic strategy on Iran, the aide said, “The strategy is simple: Give the Republicans enough rope and they’ll hang themselves."
See? Ya gotta have your priorities straight. The real issue isn't about what a crazed bunch of Iranians might do with nuclear weapons--- it's about how Democrats can take advantage of the situation for political gain. Bejus! Now we know what's REALLY important in the world today.
Wanna hear some mealy-mouthed mush-speak? Listen to what Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee had to say.
“All I'm saying is I remain skeptical,” she told an intelligence panel. “Lots of unanswered questions and conjecture that I have is that if I were Iran and I wanted to put out disinformation, it might look a lot like what our government is claiming is information.... I want to be absolutely sure that we base decisions, especially tough decisions like what are the next steps with Iran -- and I surely hope they are diplomatic because I think those are our best options -- on pristine and pure intelligence, or the closest we can get to that.”
Harmon is described as "outspoken" and "cogent." Gag me. With a spoon. I would describe her as "evasive" and "confused." We get the usual mewling about "diplomacy," which worked so well on Saddam Hussein, and then the navel-gazing about not knowing the "real intentions" of Iran's leaders. (Which can't possibly mirror their threatening rhetoric. They wouldn't actually USE nuclear weapons, even if they say they will. That's unthinkable! Yes, it is to some sheeple.)
This kind of "talk a lot but say nothing" crap is bad enough when Congress is toiling to pass some wasteful spending bill or another generous tax dollar giveaway program. But we're talking serious shit here--- NUKES IN IRAN--- not some pork-barrel legislation to build another bridge in West Virginia and name it after Robert Byrd.
A nuclear Iran is exactly the kind of problem we should expect our elected representatives to handle with an eye toward the future of the WORLD, not the outcome of the next election. But you see what we get.
Just one more reason why I won't vote anymore.
