Yesterday The United Nations, Today The Democrats
Yesterday The United Nations, Today The Democrats: Yesterday GWB laid it on the line to the United Nations. Either they make Iraq tow the line or the United States will do it even if we have to go it alone.
Today, George W. Bush decided to call out the Democrats….
“Mr. Bush Friday also made clear his annoyance at Congressional Democrats who say they want to wait until after the UN acts before enacting a resolution authorizing possible military action against Iraq.
“Democrats waiting for the U.N. to act?” he asked with a chuckle. “If I were running for office, I’m not sure how I’d explain to the American people — say, vote for me, and, oh, by the way, on a matter of national security, I think I’m going to wait for somebody else to act.”
Mr. Bush added, “It seems like to me that if you’re representing the United States you ought to be making a decision on what’s best for the United States.”
The message in so many words? George Bush is standing up for America, no matter what anybody else thinks. On the other hand, the Democrats are cowering in the background waiting to see if the UN will give them permission to defend America. That my friends, is a clear shot across the bow that should let the Democrats know what’s coming. Either they give Bush his vote on Iraq before the October recess and make their constituents mad or the Republicans are going to pound them unmercifully for not being serious about the war.
As far as I’m concerned, it’s about time that someone called the Democrats on their waffling. Either they’re for continuing the ‘war on terrorism’ in Iraq or they’re essentially in favor of giving up. Whatever their intentions are, their constituents have a right to know where their representatives stand on the war before they cast their votes in November.
