Heard It On The Sunday News Shows, The Emboldened Enemies

Joe Lieberman the ex Democratic Senator declared on Fox News Sunday that he would consider voting for a Republican candidate for President. Asked if he might consider voting Republican in 2008, Lieberman, who was the Democratic vice presidential nominee in 2000 with Al Gore, said, “I am, because we have so much on the line both in terms of the Islamist terrorists, who are an enemy as brutal as the fascists and communists we faced in the last century, and we have great challenges here at home to make our economy continue to produce good jobs, to deal with our crises in health care, education, immigration, and energy.” And while we are speaking of switch hitters, Fox “News” Bill O’Reilly’s show has decided that Mark Foley, the disgraced Florida Republican Congressman, is now a Democrat. Senator Sam Brownback was also on Fox “News” Sunday and claimed “I don’t see this enemy as needing any more emboldening or getting it from any resolution. They’re emboldened now.” The transcript from his interview with Chris Wallace is a good read. Joseph Biden was seen on “This Week” saying that Bush had it backwards. It’s not the hippie, liberal, pinko, anti war crowd that emboldens the enemy, but it’s, “the failed policy of this president going to war without a strategy, going to war prematurely.” Hillary was spotted campaigning in Iowa for the first time, where she is a bit behind in the polls. She was also caught singing the National Anthem. in Iowa. I hope she campaigns better than she sings. While in Iowa Hillary stopped to talk about Iraq. When asked why she voted for the war in 2002 she responded by saying if she knew what she knows now she would not have voted for the war in Iraq, but there are no do overs in life. Hillary also said that Bush needs to clean up this mess before the next President takes office, saying it would be “the height of irresponsibility” to pass the war along to the next commander in chief. The White House responded by saying Hillary just emboldens the enemy, she’s against us, you see… Rudy Giuliani was in New Hampshire talking like a candidate again. He was the darling candidate at the New Hampshire Republican State Committee’s annual meeting, at the Palace Theatre. Also appearing in New Hampshire, but making less of a hit was Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo and former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore. They were trying to attrack anyone to listen to them talk by giving away free lunches. McCain was also giving away lunches, but didn’t even bother to attend himself. What i didn’t see to much on the Sunday news shows was the protest in DC. This was the largest protest in DC since the begning of the war in March of 2003. Only one major (well at least in his mind) presidential candidate appeared at the protest. Dennis Kucinich stood up and asked for his party to end funding for the war. There were other Democratic Congressial members speaking too. Hanoi Jane Fonda was there along with some other actors, and some veterans from the Iraq war. United for Peace and Justice, the protest organizers claim over 100,000 people in attendance. DC police privatly state, (I guess they whispered it in someone’s ear), that it was less than 100,000. Most newspaper reports, call it “tens of thousands”. Really don’t want to much of this peace talk getting out, might embolden the enemy….
