Brazile's World...


Donna Brazile is at it again in the Washington Times (Zen, how can that be?) with her column disparaging the Vice-Presidents comments about Speaker Pelosi and Big John Murtha plans to restrict the military and the war on terrorism. Brazile claims that anybody who is against the war in Iraq is being labeled as Un-patriotic and the Vice-President is leading these attacks.

"Vice President Dick Cheney is at it again. Once again, the self-proclaimed "enforcer" is shooting recklessly, arrogantly disparaging the patriotism of those who oppose the continued escalation of troops in Iraq."

But actually what the Vice-President said pretty much sums it up and it appears the truth hurts and Brazile does not like it at all…

"If we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we do is validate the al Qaeda strategy. The al Qaeda strategy is to break the will of the American people."

A strategy that has worked in the past and continues to be used by the Democrats favorite tool, the Mainstream media, to form a negative view of the war on terrorism. Just look at this past weeks 60 minutes program and their claims of many military personnel against the war in Iraq. Post on this to come…

Brazile claims that if you question or come out against the war you are then labeled as somebody who is “demoralizing the troops”. Brazile then states that our troops are tough and can take it.
“They have a job. They have a mission, and they do it well. And we're proud of their service to the country. End of story.”

Brazile then sums it up by saying that the President is wrong, Pelosi is right, and the best thing for the troops is for the country to unite in pulling them out.

“The vice president was clearly out of line, and Mrs. Pelosi is right to call his bluff. The best way to support our troops is to unite our country behind a strategy that will bring them home as soon as is feasible.”

So cutting off reinforcements, equipment, supplies, training, and logistics is uniting behind a strategy to support the troops? What if we had the same military levels we had before “Surplus Slick” Willie Clinton cut the military like he did in the90’s? Where would we be now if he did not cut the military forces, training bases, and recruitment levels? If Clinton had maintained the military levels and kept the investment in our intelligence services this whole war on terrorism would have been completely different. If Clinton had addressed the terrorism problem during his tenure more aggressively instead of as a “Criminal investigation” the attacks of 9/11 could have been prevented.

Something Brazile seems to ignore in her “world”…

The "Humble" estate of John Edwards (D)...


Thinking back to the 2004 Presidential election when Kerry's buddy and V.P. running mate John Edwards made these comments, the Investors Business Daily had some interesting info on his new "spread"...

"But this home belongs to the John Edwards who said during the 2004 campaign that there are "two Americas," one "that is struggling to get by," another "that can buy anything it wants."

"Trial lawyer and presidential candidate John Edwards and wife Elizabeth live a 10,778-square-foot main home near Chapel Hill, N.C., that sprawls across a spread that would take up several blocks in an East Coast city."

Connected to Edwards' not-so-humble abode are 15,600 square feet of outbuildings that house a gym, a pool, a raquetball court, two stages, a four-story tower and a room set aside as John's Lounge.

It’s tough being the Princess…


Looks like Pelosi is finding that being the Speaker of the House is not as easy as it appeared in the Capitol Visitor’s guide and as she hoped… And living up to the “the most ethical Congress in history” goal is going to be pretty tough with the crew she brought to the dance.

“She is drawing fire for putting Rep. William Jefferson (D-La.), who had $90,000 in alleged bribe money in his freezer, on the Homeland Security Committee.”

Even some of those working for the “Democratic” party seem to have a problem with Jefferson and the favorable treatment he is receiving from Pelosi.

"Pelosi had to put him somewhere," said Sloan, who has also worked as minority counsel for the House Judiciary Committee for then-ranking member John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.). "But I am troubled by the fact ... that (Jefferson) is the kind of guy who could not pass a security clearance test and yet now he has access to top-secret government info."

Another goal was to have Congress work a full five day week but that has happened only once. And remember those claims she made before the election and how she was going to change the way those dirty Republicans ran things?

“The speaker has denied Republicans a vote on their proposals during congressional debates -- a tactic she previously declared oppressive and promised to end. Pelosi has opened the floor to a Republican alternative just once.”
