Barbara J. Stock Dec. 20, 2005 It is difficult to sort out which psychological phase the Democratic Party is in from one day to the next. One day they want to fight the terrorists and the next day they want cut and run. To claim the hard line leftists are bipolar would be an understatement. Hard core liberals shriek not to accuse them of being unpatriotic while at the same time they claim America cannot win the war in Iraq. While steadfastly declaring that they are devoted to our men and women in uniform, a Democratic senator compares our troops to Nazis, a Congressman claims our soldiers are weak, and Hanoi Jane Fonda proclaims that our soldiers now have, How to Commit Atrocities, as part of the military curriculum. Reeling from the successful election in Iraq, Democratic strategists dont know how to respond when asked about the election. When questioned by a frustrated Tony Snow of FOX News, leftist spokeswoman Mary Anne Marsh insisted on repeatedly side-stepping the simple question put to her. Mr. Snow asked her to put the polls aside and just give her own opinion on the election in Iraq, but she could not do it. Like a doll with a string in her back, Marsh kept repeating, The American people feel we are failing in Iraq and dont trust the president anymore. Just pull that string and you would get the same thing over and over. She looked foolish and Democrats do not speak for all of the American people. One should also question some of the polls the leftists continue to quote. Perhaps feeling brave at the moment, Senator John Kerry made the comment that if the Democrats take back the House and Senate, impeachment proceedings against President Bush should begin. The Zogby poll is well known to those who follow such things. In a recent poll, Zogby found that 42% of Americans feel that if Bush lied about Iraq, he should be impeached. On leftists blogs and websites this number is cheered and gleefully compared to the relatively low number of people who wanted Bill Clinton impeached. That number was a mere 41%. That one lone percentage point makes all the difference in the vengeful and somewhat irrational minds of some of todays Democrats. Congressman John Murtha continues to say that 80% of the Iraqi people want the United States military to leave Iraq at once. This is not substantiated by a recent poll done for the British Broadcasting Company. (BBC) When asked, Thinking ahead to the next 12 months, what would be the best thing which could happen to Iraq? American troops leaving Iraq was fourth on their list with only 5.7% of the people feeling that was important to them. That doesnt even account for all the Suni Muslims who one would think would the most eager to see the Americans leave their country. Pursuing this question, it was re-worded and put to the people in a different way with little change in the results. When, What would be the worst thing that could happen to Iraq in the next 12 months? was asked, the occupation not leaving Iraq remained fourth at 8.9% with terrorism coming in third at 11.5%. Obviously, the average Iraq citizen is more concerned about terrorists than American soldiers. What this poll also shows is that John Murtha is wrong. Yet, he doggedly continues to make that statement. Murtha must know by now that he is making a false statement. A recent ABC poll revealed that 57% of the American people want our troops to remain in Iraq until the country is stable and able to stand on its own. With 57% of the American people wanting us to finish the job and not abandon Iraq, Ms. Marsh must know that she, too, is not being honest. The old adage of if you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, is at work here. Hard line leftist Democrats will continue to lie even in the face of overwhelming numbers to the contrary, in the hopes that some will believe the lies. The latest scandal is that the president allowed international calls from known terrorists to American citizens to be tapped without first obtaining a wiretap court order. Often, these calls would come in with no time to run to a judge and get permission. We may never know how many lives have been saved by the quick action of our intelligence gathering agencies. In fact, the law only covers phones calls that start and end within the United States. Even the New York Times, which broke the story after having it for a year, admits that Bush broke no laws. But the leftists are in a frenzy declaring that Bush is not a king and must follow the Constitution. The timing of this latest bombshell from the troubled Times is suspect. The good news from Iraq was threatening to overshadow the leftist agenda. Congress was going to be voting on renewing the Patriot Act, and there is a little book that James Risen has coming out. National security means nothing when a leftist has a new anti-Bush book to peddle. Success in Iraq must be shouted down. The Democratic Party is in a sorry state. The hard working, blue collar party that my father was devoted to is dead. It has become a whining, lying, self-serving, white-flag-waving disgrace. Sooner or later all the lies will catch up with them. The successful election in Iraq made reasonable Americans ask themselves how the situation in Iraq could be so hopeless when so many smiling, happy people were proudly displaying their purple badge of honor. If Bush has no plan for Iraq as the Democrats insist, then what is it that is at work in Iraq right now? The presidents poll numbers are on the rise and we can expect the leftists to get even more desperate and shrill. Even the tainted New York Times cant help them now. President Bush is no longer on the defensive. When on the offensive, he is at his best and he becomes the man the leftists seem to fear and hate the most and the American people love. The leftists no longer have the stage all to themselves. They have become so frantic they now must team up with newspapers to discredit the president of the United States and assist the enemy once more. The battle is on for the hearts and minds of the American people and the leftists seem to be losing. The truth is as simple as a finger that has been dipped in purple ink. http://capitolhilljournal.com/art000000024.html This writer sum's things up pretty well I think.. The real dems.(if there are any left), better come out and take their party back or their going to fall of the cliff, and soon.
