Nancy Pelosi: Voice of the Democratic Party

Democrat Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader, made this unbelievable statement to the Associated Press about President Bush yesterday:

“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called President Bush ‘incompetent’ and said he is responsible for hundreds of deaths of U.S. soldiers in Iraq.

‘Bush is an incompetent leader. In fact, he's not a leader,’ Pelosi told the San Francisco Chronicle in a 45-minute interview Wednesday in her Capitol office. ‘He's a person who has no judgment, no experience and no knowledge of the subjects that he has to decide upon.’

Pelosi, a San Francisco Democrat, is a frequent critic of the president and led the effort against the war in 2003. But this was her strongest criticism of Bush to date.‘He has on his shoulders the deaths of many more troops, because he would not heed the advice of his own State Department of what to expect after May 1 when he ... declared that major combat is over,’ Pelosi said. ‘The shallowness that he has brought to the office has not changed since he got there.’…

Pelosi also said the only way to get allies to commit more troops to Iraq is to have a new president.

‘Not to get personal about it, but the president's capacity to lead has never been there,’ Pelosi said. ‘In order to lead, you have to have judgment. In order to have judgment, you have to have knowledge and experience. He has none.’”

This is the voice from the soul of the current Democratic Party. Supporters of the President should hope that Mrs Pelosi, Ted Kennedy and John Kerry continue their attacks on the President in public and unabated. Today Mrs. Pelosi refused to retract her statements. Please note in the story that Democrats fall back on their favorite accusation, "McCarthyism", when her statements are challenged. The Howard Dean "Scream Speech", as it has come to be known, was not the rantings of a rabid anomoly in the Democratic Party, it was the trumpet rallying the radicals who now rule that party to war against main stream America. John Kerry's and Ted Kennedy's radicalism from the 1960's and early 1970's Vietnam era is well documented. At that time they were on the far left of the political spectrum. A minority in a party that was slowly moving left. Now however, what was once a minority in the Democratic Party is the Democratic Party. With the nomination of John Kerry the party has come full circle, and the American people have a stark choice to make in November. The election of John Kerry would be the final embrace by the public of the radicalism that started in the sixties and has slowly infected American life. The re-election of George Bush would be a symbolic rejection of the ideas that have brought same sex marriage, radical feminism, abortion on demand, and "blame America first" foreign policy and a symbolic embrace of the main stream values on which this country was founded and on which it has survived. In foreign policy, the re-election of George Bush would be the continuation of the Goldwater/Reagan philosophy of "Peace through Strength" that helped defeat the Soviet Union in the Cold War, and that will protect Americans in the War on Terror.

Let's hope for all our sakes Americans make the right choice.
