When Hugo Chavez came to town and told America that President Bush was the devil, democrats like Charles Rangel told the vile Venezuelan to pipe down:
“I want President Chavez to please understand that even though many people in the United States are critical of our president that we resent the fact that he would come to the United States and criticize President Bush,” said Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y.
In a statement issued by his Washington office, Rangel said, “George Bush is the president of the United States and represents the entire country. Any demeaning public attack against him is viewed by Republicans and Democrats, and all Americans, as an attack on all of us.”
Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Tom Harkin also added their two cents in defense of Bush.
WHERE WERE THE DEM DEFENDERS TODAY??
Playing political hooky??
Al-Qaeda's second in command, al-Zawahiri, called Bush a failure and said America will lose the war against radical isalm:
"Bush you are a lying failure and a charlatan. It has been three and a half years [since the arrests] ... What happened to us? We have gained more strength and we are more insistent on martyrdom," he said."
"Bush, O failure and liar, why don't you be courageous for once and confront your people and tell them the truth about your losses in Iraq and Afghanistan."
Apparently all the horse shit in al-Zawahiri's Al Qaeda Upchuck today wasn't sufficient for the democrats to come to our president's defense. Either they are afraid of al-Zawahiri or they feel that calling Bush "the devil" is worse than calling him "a liar", "a failure" and telling America we are LOSERS to islamofascists.
Today the democratic party's public silence protruded like a wart on a witch's nose as al-Zawahiri perfectly parroted their statements over a skewed interpretation of leaked classified information that could compromise national security.
