Dick Cheney Hammers The Democrats For Playing Into Al-Qaeda’s Hands

“I think if we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we will do is validate the al-Qaida strategy. The al-Qaida strategy is to break the will of the American people … try to persuade us to throw in the towel and come home, and then they win because we quit.” — Dick Cheney

Predictably, Nancy Pelosi is upset that Dick Cheney is accurately describing what the Democrats want to do:

“I hope the president will repudiate and distance himself from the vice president’s remarks,” Pelosi said. She said she tried to complain about Cheney to President Bush but could not reach him.

“You cannot say as the president of the United States, ‘I welcome disagreement in a time of war,’ and then have the vice president of the United States go out of the country and mischaracterize a position of the speaker of the House and in a manner that says that person in that position of authority is acting against the national security of our country,” the speaker said.

What’s the matter, Nancy? Does the truth hurt? After all, the Democrats are “acting against the national security of our country” and validating “the al-Qaida strategy.” And it’s great to see someone in the White House finally saying so, instead of giving the Democrats a pass for trying to sabotage the war in Iraq for political gain. Hopefully, Bush will be willing to back Cheney up on this rather than reaching out yet again to the very people who have been willing to do anything and everything to destroy him since the day he came into office.
