Good Democrats, Bad Democrats

Chris Rudy takes on the Democratic leadership over at Newsmax.
Good Democrats, Bad Democrats: "Dean, head of the Democratic National Committee, outraged many even in his own party by stating that, despite the progress that has been made in the Middle East, the 'idea that we're going to win the war in Iraq is an idea which is just plain wrong.'

Gore actually came out and said global warming was a more serious problem than international terrorism — just what the pro-Kyoto accord nuts in Europe love to hear.

Kennedy charged that the Bush administration 'misrepresented and distorted' intelligence to justify the war in Iraq, and called for the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

Kerry, who was showing signs of reasonableness during his 2004 campaign, now likens Iraq to Vietnam and said American troops were 'terrorizing' women and children in Iraq.

Criticism, even of a war, is a good thing. This is America. I myself have written that we need to develop an exit strategy. But I also think George Bush is a hero for taking on Saddam Hussein and having kept the U.S. safe for a long period following 9/11.

In truth, we need to do a better public relations job with our allies and nations around the world.

But our P.R. offensive should begin at home — and Democrats should remember that they are, first and foremost, Americans."
