Move Over Dick Durbin...

...and make way for Karl Rove.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20050623/...us/rove_speech

Quote:
Rove, Bush's chief political adviser, said in a speech Wednesday that "liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers." Conservatives, he told the New York state Conservative Party just a few miles north of Ground Zero, "saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war."

Rove said the Democratic Party made the mistake of calling for "moderation and restraint" after the terrorist attacks.

Democrats were quick to respond — and in growing numbers.

"Karl Rove should immediately and fully apologize for his remarks or he should resign," Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said in a statement. "I hope the president will join me in repudiating these remarks."
Who needs Nazi remarks when you can just call your opponents terrorist sympathizers?

In the day of being ultra PC, this is about as un-PC as you can get. Stupid comments? Yes. Enough for Rove to resign or Bush to can him? Most likely not. Bush would probably take a bullet for Rove and I would be super surprised if he gave him any more than a light talking to.

it is a strategy to appeal to the simple minded

either you are in favor of locking up 9/11 terrorists at GITMO

or

you are a sympathizer for 9/11 terrorists.


of course these are 100 per cent false choices

but it is enough for the simple minded
the ones that put Bush in office

Rove/Cheney/Bush are just shoring up their base

Fair points. This is probably the same base that gets fired up listening to Toby Kieth's "We'll Put a Boot in Your Ass" lyrics.

you are up 3 hours before me

when I check this later, i guess it will confirm your statement

so, do you disagree that drudge totally panders to conservatives and distorts?


I thought BinLaden was the enemy.

It does aid the enemy, but the enemy is the huge divide in this country. Otherwise we won't need any enemies, we'll just destroy ourselves from within.

Rove is a hole. As a liberal who had no sympathy with the killers who did 9/11 I'm offended.

I have to say that I don't remember it at all as Rove claims. I remember the nation pulling together after 9/11.

Bush should whop him upside the head, but good.

BS

Rove's remarks are not in line with how we think. We remember how it really was.
