Subject: Weak and Wrong: Today’s Defeat-ocrats
Date: Wed, 9 Aug 2006 22:41:56 -0400 (EDT)
In politics, there are turning points that can define a political party for
decades to come. Yesterday’s defeat of Senator Joe Lieberman in the
Democrat primary in Connecticut is such a moment. Because he stood for a
strong national defense and victory in Iraq, Joe Lieberman was successfully
targeted for defeat.
For a political party to reject a respected Senator who just six years ago
was its candidate for Vice President is virtually without precedent. It
speaks volumes about the new Democrat Party: if you stand for a strong
defense and victory in the War on Terror, you have no place in the party
and you must be purged.
Watch the video and get the facts about what this means about the decline
of the Democrat Party - from leadership that would “pay any price, bear any
burden” to defend freedom to leaders who want to cut and run from the War
on Terror, and surrender other tools needed to keep America safe.
The message from Connecticut is clear, and Ned Lamont isn’t alone. He is
joined by Rep. John Murtha, architect of the Democrats’ position on Iraq
and the man who wants to be the next House Majority Leader, who claims
America is more dangerous than Iran and North Korea and says, “We’ve become
the enemy.” And by Howard Dean, who calls the idea of victory in Iraq “just
plain wrong.” Watch how the new Democrat Party always chooses weakness over
strength, blaming America first.
With 90 days to go before the election, National Democrat leaders have made
their choice in favor of defeatism, isolationism, and blaming America
first. Where do you stand?
