"It’s time to set the record straight about Iraq. That’s why we’ve released this new web video, "Democrats: Dishonest on Iraq." Watch it now on GOP.com.
Watch, and you’ll see Senator Hillary Clinton talking tough when it came time to confront Saddam, saying "I can support the President, I can support an action against Saddam Hussein because I think it’s in the long-term interests of our national security …" Or Howard Dean calling Iraq an "international outlaw." Or House minority leader Nancy Pelosi stating unequivocally, "Saddam Hussein certainly has chemical and biological weapons. There’s no question about that."
Watch Democrat after Democrat on tape, reaching the same conclusion the President reached about Iraq.
Now that the politics have changed, those Democrats are trying to rewrite history. We welcome a robust debate about the conduct of the war. But for these Democrats to make politics their bottom line, abandoning their long-held positions when times get tough, sends the wrong message to the Iraqi people and to the terrorists. Whatever the politics in Washington, our troops need to know that our will is strong, our nation is united, and we will defeat this enemy.
Chairman, Republican National Committee"
This came in E-mail. You Democrats are not going to like this, but it reminds me mightily of the baloney that LBJ fed us all long ago. There is the same detachment from reality, the same willingness to bend the truth, the same willingness to cast aspersions on the motives of fellow citizens who do not agree with your policy.
This also reminds of the brainless repetitive hectoring of "the citizens" in the lamentable film, "Starship Troopers." In this film, a "federation" government of the future relentlessly indoctrinates, spins, minimizes, entices and lies to obain a willing compliance from the citizenry.
A plague on all their houses.
