The perpetual Senator from Massachusetts ran against President George W. Bush, and even some Democrats found it difficult not to giggle at his flip-flops and flubs during his campaign. The man was exposed as a “legend in his own mind” by the Swift Boat Veterans who revealed the truth about Kerry’s four months in Vietnam. They also exposed his fabrications and false accusations during his anti-war career. More recently, Kerry accused US soldiers of terrorizing Iraqi women and children in the dark of the night. And then there was his statement to a group of students that they should stay in school and get a good education or else they’d end up as soldiers in Iraq.
Dubbed a “hawk” by the Democrat Party spinmeisters, Congressman Murtha was the darling of the anti-war news media – at least for a time. Murtha’s statements were quoted repeatedly and then discarded when they were proved wrong. For example, he said our military was broken. Then he said we could not win in Iraq. Before any investigations or courts-martial, he said a group of US Marines were cold-blooded murderers. When the Marines were found innocent of any wrongdoing, Murtha moved on without any apology. While the reporters at the New York Times, Washington Post and CNN touted him as a military expert, he advised military leaders to redeploy to Okinawa and respond to violence with air missions.
Senator Dick Durbin is another perpetual lawmaker who every so often lets his guard down and utters statements that reveal his true character. For instance, on the floor of the US Senate, Durbin accused soldiers deployed as guards at the terrorist detention center in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba of being Nazis. He described the facility as a Soviet gulag. He went on to invoke the name of a man who murdered millions of Cambodians – Pol Pot. Of course, he was forced to apologize, but the apology was more of a slap in the face of many American patriots.
President Barack Obama
It is difficult to chronicle President Obama’s “unpatriotic” statements since he utters them almost on a daily basis. For months during his administration words such as “terrorism,” “terrorist,” “war” and others were kicked to the wayside. His appointments also display a total disregard for what made ours a great nation. Avowed Marxists, Maoists and socialists populate his administration and push their agenda behind closed doors. He said police in Cambridge acted stupidly before even knowing the facts of the incident involving his professor friend. However, after a Muslim murdered 13 men and women on a US Army base in Fort Hood, Texas, Obama stated he did not wish to comment until all the facts were at his disposal. While calling for unity, Obama has used vitriolic language to describe anyone who disagrees with him or his policies and ideas. Yet, while the members of the news media and entertainment industry hated George W. Bush, they adore and practically worship Barack Hussein Obama.
The Usual Suspects
Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Carl Levin, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Russ Feingold, Pat Leahy, Chuck Schumer – the list goes on – continue to bash former President Bush, bash our military and bash real American patriots. During a speech to the nation, President Obama said the Cambridge police acted stupidly without his even knowing the facts about the incident in question.
When the Secretary for Homeland Security compiled a memorandum regarding extremists in the United States, Secretary Janet Napolitano’s finished product described returning war veterans, pro-life activists, gun-control opponents and those opposed to big government intrusion into the lives of Americans.
Are these Democrats patriots or hypocrites?
