GOP should have been as angry at Osama

I was watching J.D. " keep Bush away from me" Hayworth, call Democrats cowards that are only willing to fight a two week war after Congressman Murtha pounded the Iraq war effort today. JD brought in the fake analogy of WWI &WWII to justify his silly position. Does the GOP remember when Cheney told us that we would be greeted as liberators indicating that this would be a quick and painless operation?

"Russert: If your analysis is not correct, and we’re not treated as liberators, but as conquerors, and the Iraqis begin to resist, particularly in Baghdad, do you think the American people are prepared for a long, costly, and bloody battle with significant American casualties?"

"VP Cheney: Well, I don’t think it’s likely to unfold that way, Tim, because I really do believe that we will be greeted as liberators. I’ve talked with a lot of Iraqis in the last several months myself, had them to the White House. The president and I have met with them, various groups and individuals, people who have devoted their lives from the outside to trying to change things inside Iraq. And like Kanan Makiya who’s a professor at Brandeis, but an Iraqi, he’s written great books about the subject, knows the country intimately, and is a part of the democratic opposition and resistance. The read we get on the people of Iraq is there is no question but what they want to the get rid of Saddam Hussein and they will welcome as liberators the United States when we come to do that."

Steve brings up a good point. What would have happened if the GOP had used the same amount of venom to attack the man called Osama Bin Laden, as they are against the Democrats, who have a legitimate right to question what has transpired in Iraq? Remember him? The only time we hear about Osama is when some video tape surfaces.

The Carpet Bagger Report says: Under the new standards of WH rhetoric, Dems might be justified in telling reporters, "If Bush and Cheney went after bin Laden with the same passion they use to go after congressional Democrats, the world would be a safer place." on
