Remember George Bush during the 2000 Republican Convention, discussing Al Gore:
It is the sum of his message — the politics of the roadblock, the philosophy of the stop sign.
If my opponent had been there at the moon launch, it would have been a “risky rocket scheme.”
If he’d been there when Edison was testing the light bulb, it would have been a “risky anti-candle scheme.”
And if he’d been there when the Internet was invented well … I understand he actually was there for that.
He now leads the party of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. But the only thing he has to offer is fear itself.
Maybe Al Gore really is speaking for the Democrats. What do they have to offer? What are their suggestions? What are their plans? In which direction do they want to lead us?
They hate the tax cut, but they are afraid to do anything about it.
They hate the idea of action against Iraq, but they refuse to suggest an alternative, so all they do is talk.
Check out the fearmongering in Kristof’s article today. Listen to Fat Teddy Kennedy talking about a war with Iraq and the possible street fighting:
Meanwhile, senior Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy argued in a speech Friday that the administration has failed to make a persuasive case for going to war against Iraq and that the top U.S. priority should be getting U.N. inspectors back in Iraq, not preparing for unilateral military action.
“War should be a last resort, not the first response,” the Massachusetts senator said in a speech to the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
Does that make him a Chickendove? All Ted Kennedy has ever battled is the bottle, his beltline, and reality.
I look at people like Tom Delay, or Strom Thurmond, people who scare the hell out of me, and all I can think is what a sad situation it is that I would gladly vote for them over 90% of the Democrats out there right now.
