Terrorists Beating Dems to White Flag Punch?
When it comes to cutting and running, John Kerry, Jack Murtha and Nancy Pelosi take a back seat to no one. But what if - quelle horreur! - the terrorist insurgents in Iraq beat them to the white flag punch?
Amidst the news of the day, from plots to bomb the Sears Tower to more Dem disunity, Jim Miklaszewski let slip this little bombshell, coming from a press conference by the top U.S. commander in Iraq, General George Casey:
"On the positive front, Casey revealed for the first time the Sunni insurgency has reached out to both the U.S. and Iraq to find some way to end their terrorist campaign."
Whoah! Talk about upsetting the apple cart! This could be a total disaster. The Dems are just going to have to find a way to accelerate their surrender timetable before those darn terrorists mess everything up by surrendering first!
In other news, for the second day running Today played the drumbeat of Dem disunity. Matt Lauer interviewed Joe Biden, and zinged him with these questions:
"You were here just two weeks ago. It's an amazing change in those two weeks. The Republicans were loath to talk about the war with Iraq. They were talking about gay marriage and flag burning. And the Democrats seemed to be in the driver's seat. Two weeks later, the Republicans are united behind the president and the Democrats are divided. How did this happen?"
And later: "Do you think, though, there is a perception that the Democrats can't get on the same page? Two Democratic proposals were floated on in the Senate and -- were voted on in the Senate and neither passed. John Kerry's only got 13 votes."
Biden: "That's right."
Lauer: "How did that happen?"
Biden: "Well, that's the point. We don't agree with John Kerry."
Message to Sen. Biden - it's not a good sign when the only way you can refute the disunity allegation is by throwing under the bus your once and perhaps future presidential candidate!
