Opportunism Watch

Noted here, Peter Beinart has courageously exposed Democrats' lack of principle when it comes to national security issues, when they perceive they can score some political advantage.

The newest example: As Robert Novak reports, Nancy Pelosi wasn't willing to sign on to a resolution supporting Israel -- but was more than happy to attack Iraq's democratically-elected prime minster for his purported non-support for Israel.

Searching for "Democratic integrity" is like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Good look. Nobody has found such a creature in the past 30 years. Some experts say it’s extinct - killed off by the McGovern revolution which kicked out the religious minded middle class from the party and brought in the likes of feminists, homosexuals, abortionists, American-haters [like John Kerry, Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, John Murtha, etc., etc.], and swarmy opportunists like the Clintons.

One does, however, search daily for examples of Democratic pandering to their choir, wondering if there is anything they would say or do more breathtaking than yesterday's. And, Shazaam, they manage to do it. It is as if they deliberately try to top each other. Quite a chore. If, like me, you tend to think in reasonable segments, and are asked to say something outlandish, ourtrageous, I find myself stumped. I say that as I sit here and watch Tom Friedman on Tim Russert claiming America has stolen "optimism" from the world and given in exchange "the darkness of Cheney." See, I couldn't have come up with that. Even if I tried.

I'll tell you who stole optimism. It was stolen on 9/11. How do you get it back. Maybe you can't get back to days before 9/11. Nor should you. Unless you are a Democrat. Maybe that's why they hate America. Because they want 9/10 back and Bush hasn't delivered it.

But Bush has delivered this. You took from us, now we'll take from you. In the future , if you take from us we'll take from you.

Now, that's optimistic. What is to hate from those two statements. Israel has delivered the same two remarks to its enemies. What would the Democrats have them utter in their place?

Oh, you shouldn't have done that? Until the world condemns terrorism there will be little optimism. Until the world can delineate between terrorists and oppressors there will be continued terrorism.

Pelosi is a twit. I can't believe she is the ranking member of the House of Representatives - a MAJOR reason to keep the Republicans in the majority!
