Democrats pledge to ‘eliminate’ Osama bin Laden

Here we go, folks, the Democrats have decided to look tough and now claim they are all for National Security, after fighting President Bush every step of the way ever since 9-11. Imagine, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, bastions of the lunatic left now want us to believe they are tough guys ready to fight for our freedom.


The Democrats, in an effort to copy Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America, which swept Republicans into the House and Senate in 1994, are releasing their own National Security “contract.” Amongst promises are;


[A] promise to ”eliminate” Osama bin Laden and ensure a ”responsible redeployment of U.S. forces” from Iraq in 2006.


This is almost too funny. Wasn’t it a Democrat led Administration that couldn’t find the Olympic Bomber for several years? And, within our own country? What is most notably lacking in their “promise” is anything specific on just how they plan to “eliminate Osama Bin Ladin.”


I also ask, just what is a “responsible redeployment of U.S. Forces from Iraq in 2006?” They also claim to not be setting a deadline and that we must keep troops in Iraq until the Iraqi Military can defend itself, just as President Bush is now doing. But, isn’t”redeployment” moving troops to another location? It was when I was in the Army.


The article goes on to say, “Democrats say they will double the number of Special Forces and add more spies, which they suggest will increase the chances of finding al-Qaida’s elusive leader.”


Double the number of Special Forces? How? Aren’t they also claiming elsewhere that Bush’s War in Iraq has cost the Military to miss their enlistment goals every year? Hmmm. Could they be planning on reinstituting the dreaded draft? I don’t see any other way to accomplish what they say they will do other than another Democrat push are reinstating the draft.


They also state doing this would “increase the chances of finding Bin Ladin.” Wait a minute; didn’t they start off PROMISING TO ELIMINATE Bin Lading? Now, within the same article, it’s only an “increased chance?” Democrats sure do love double speak, don’t they?


Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev, said, ”We’re uniting behind a national security agenda that is tough and smart and will provide the real security George Bush has promised but failed to deliver.” Isn’t this the same Harry Reid that has complained about every security measure Bush has instituted? Including what they called a “Domestic Eavesdropping Program?” It doesn’t matter that it wasn’t that at all, Reid couldn’t wait to bash Bush over actual security measures that apparently have worked, as we haven’t had another terrorist attack on our soil yet. Eventually, yes, it will happen again, especially if we fall for weak-kneed hollow promises from those that decimated our spy programs and Military over several decades since Viet Nam.


Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York said, ”The Democrats are going to take back the security issue.”


There it is. This call for National Security isn’t a toughening or support plan at all. It’s just another power grab scheme by Democrats thirsty for the power they lost after decades of leading the country down the drain.


Sadly, Republicans in Congress haven’t been much better. They too haven’t supported President Bush as much as they could and have several times now leaned over the aisle to join hands with Democrats against Bush on issues. Spineless Republicans might just allow voters to believe Democrats actually have a plan.


Remember John ‘F’in Kerry’s plans during the 2004 campaign? Right, neither do I. I do remember him saying he had them and all we needed to do was elect him to hear them. This latest in hollow promises without any specifics appears to me to be a duplicate of Kerry’s failed campaign. “Just elect us and we will reveal how we plan to do it.” Unfortunately, once elected, they get to remain there long enough for us to surrender, as Democrats led us to in Viet Nam and abandon a struggling ally again.


Democrats led us into worldwide shame and opened the doors for every two-bit dictator to rattle a sword and make us pee our pants. At least, Democrats do. Democrats sold freedom out once before and I’m afraid that is their real plan again. We cannot afford to let Iraq go the way of Viet Nam and show the world that the lone Super Power is exactly what China said we were after we abandoned our allies in South Viet Nam. A Paper Tiger.


Don’t fall for this latest glib talk. Select Representatives in D.C. that truly will stand up to terror and do what is needed to ensure America remains free and gives the Iraqis a decent chance at that same freedom.
