Old Southern saying: "A Hit Dog Will Holler"

Democrats -- moonbats all -- who tried to downplay, ignore and pooh-pooh the comments of Senator "Dick Dastardly" Durbin (Disingenuous-IL) last week are now up in arms over comments made by White House Advisor Karl Rove this week. The Dems are demanding that Rove apologize for his comments or resign.

Rove's comments, which came at a Wednesday night gathering of the New York Conservative Party, included charges that liberals are soft on terrorism.

Rove, the architect behind President Bush's election victories, on Wednesday night told a gathering of the New York Conservative Party that "Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers." Conservatives, he said, "saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war."

He added that groups linked to the Democratic Party made the mistake of calling for "moderation and restraint" after the terrorist attacks.

Liberal groups like MoveOn.org have gone up in smoke, as Rove's charges hit them square on.
Eli Pariser, executive director of the MoveOn political action committee, said the online group didn't oppose U.S. military action in Afghanistan in response to the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

"Karl Rove is trying to change the subject on the president's failed Iraq policy," Pariser said in a statement. "Recent polls show growing majorities want an exit strategy. Lying about MoveOn won't solve Rove's problem."

Democratic leaders in both house of Congress are also calling for Rove's head on a silver platter. I'm guessing that since they see Rove as the so-called puppetmaster pulling President Bush's strings, that if they can get rid him, they have a better shot at going after Bush and the GOP.
Sen. Charles Schumer of New York, in a letter to Rove co-signed by Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Democratic senators from Connecticut and New Jersey, called the presidential adviser's speech "a slap in the face to the unity that America achieved after Sept. 11, 2001."

For Rove "to try to exploit 9/11 for political purposes once again just shows you how desperate they are," said House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California, who in recent days has been the target of Republican attacks for saying that the Iraq war was a "grotesque mistake."

But as I said, this is the height of hypocracy for the Democratic Party, as they minimized Durbin's comments, refusing to denounce him or those comments, even in light of Durbin's snide pseudo-apology earlier this week.

Perhaps the Dems should look in their own mirror before throwing stones or protesting too loudly.

The dems are up in arms because Karlos called them out for the patsies that they are. Did they really think that no one noticed how ineffective they are? I am not a "registered" GOP'er but I will continue my support of Bush and his Party. The dem lineup makes me sick, all of them save 1 or 2.

I have to Michael, I love the headline of this article: "A Hit Dog will Holler".

I don't know why I find it so funny, but I can't stop laughing because I keep picturing Lefty's yelping after getting bowled over by an SUV.
