The Democrats have that “deer in the headlights” look. The Whitehouse has started publishing “corrections” to the Washington Post and New York Times when they say Bush led us like a lone cowboy into war. Then that awesome video of Clinton, Albright and others in their own words from 1998 saying that Saddam was a threat, had WMDs, and had to be removed. Hard to claim it was all Bush’s idea when the Democrats were saying the same thing two years earlier. They just didn’t have the oomph to follow up their words. Bush did.
Cheney gave them another punch yesterday:
The President and I cannot prevent certain politicians from losing their memory, or their backbone â€“ but weâ€™re not going to sit by and let them rewrite history.
Weâ€™re going to continue throwing their own words back at them. And far more important, weâ€™re going to continue sending a consistent message to the men and women who are fighting the war on terror in Iraq, Afghanistan, and many other fronts.
About dang time. The Democrats voted for the war. That’s the hypocracy I can’t stand – if they were so opposed, why did they vote for it? Second-guessing after the fact isn’t any better than whining. Lots of conservatives fired up over Cheney’s speech and you can read the whole thing at Baldilocks, Brutally Honest, PoliPundit, Power Line, and Right Voices.
So what’s the Dems new strategy? Why, think about filibustering Alito again. Goodness knows the American people love it when the Democrats shut down the Senate.
