    When are we going to get a President that has the balls to say all of these facts to the American people?

    Politics is the art of getting people who aren't paying attention, to vote for you anyway. Due to this odd circumstance, part of the art is to find a way to give them information about what you have done and are doing, to persuade them to vote for you.

    But in cases where your record can't stand up to scrutiny, or you believe they won't like what you have done, your techniques change. Either you give up and agree that they shouldn't vote for you after all, or you try to arrange that they DON'T become aware of what you have done in the past, while making rosy promises of future action. This is in hopes they will think you will do something different from what your (unnoticed) record shows.

    U.S. Democrats have become masters of the latter technique. Their records of results during wartime, and in foreign relations in general, have been so abysmal for the last 40 years, that their best hope lies in never mentioning what they have done all that time, what the results were, and hoping nobody else points it out either.

    Fortunately ther is a simple, straightforward method of defeating this disingenuousness: tell the truth. This article does so, clearly and concisely. We can count on Democrats and other leftists to either ignore what it says completely, or reply with vague "No, it isn't" generalities without backup or reference. Along, of course, with the usual attacks on the messenger. Anything but try to refute the message.

    Sounds good until you examine all the exceptions and the clauses that determined those votes. Again... More fear mongering, no substance to back it up...

    Enlighten us, please.

    Ah - is that the new term for "stark, unflinching appraisal of recent history"?

    Thank you for the best chuckle I've had all day! No, I think the article is a little TOO substantive for the tastes of those who would bury plain truth under empty rhetoric and glittering generalities. You want to hear some REAL fear-mongering? I give you the six most terrifying words in the English language:

    Democrats in charge of national security.

    No generalities dearie...Provide specific citations...voting records, etc...to prove these assertions.

    <blockquote>1. On missile defense of America — Democrats voted against it.

    2. On the Patriot Act — Democrats voted against it.

    3. On tapping foreign terrorists' phone calls to the U.S. — Democrats voted against it.

    4. On tracing terrorists' money flow between foreign banks — Democrats voted against it.

    5. On building a border wall to control illegal immigration and stop dope — dealers, terrorists and criminals — Democrats voted against it.

    6. On interrogating captured terrorists — 194 Democrats just voted against it.

    7. On telling the world (and our enemy) about a timetable for withdrawing from and deserting Iraq — this is Democrats' retreat and defeat plan.</blockquote>

    And the assertion that Democrats are somehow "dangerous" to America's defense is utter balderdash...Unles you have evidence, not merely op-ed cut and paste, to support that assertion. If so, please provide it.
