"What's that," I asked him.
"What you used to say, you know, you remember - Liberals are going to get us all killed!"
Frank's right, I don't say it as much anymore and yet there may be nothing more important for our nation to understand than the reality of that statement. Liberals don't have a clear cut sense of right and wrong. They are fuzzy when it comes to moral absolutes, and they sure don't seem to have any clue when it comes to national security.Don't believe me? Then how 'bout a refresher?
We started seeing it years ago when liberal broadcast outlets like CNN were caught red-handed tailoring the news from their Baghdad bureau to meet the criteria of Saddam Hussein. It was amplified even more slightly when Dan Rather made trips to interview Saddam, Osama, and other world leaders that hated America. Heck, even CBS finally had enough when he just flat out started making things up using forged memos during the election. But now they've hired Katie Couric so has the “EYE” really learned anything? (Sorry! I apologize for the rhetorical question.)
Fast forward a bit the last liberal presidential candidate decided that he was for fighting terrorists before he was against fighting them. Plenty more on him in a minute...
More recently liberal voices in the print press have been reckless both with what they did report (secret programs aimed at giving us the upper hand in our fight with those who would like to sever our head from our bodies). And what they didn't (discovery of enough WMD in Iraq to kill 8.3 million persons - like the isle of Manhattan or the entire urban metro of Chicago).
Take the New York Times for example. In their direct reporting of how we were spying on the conversations that Al Qaeda were having with sleeper cells in our nation via specific types of cell phones - guess what? Those who would behead stopped using those types of communications methods. Now we don't quite have the same advantage to knowing their whereabouts because some liberal who doesn't believe he would ever be beheaded thought he'd win a Pulitzer.
