Taking Off The Gloves
Sit back, put your feet up, pour a cup of coffee or open a cold one ...........Wild Thing is in the ring......
I have posted before how I felt about this, I have posted in forums, starting in 1997 when I got my first computer during the Clinton's reign of terror. I have posted about it at my website and also a few times before on my Blog. And once again I am going to say this, scream this from the rooftops and hammer it in to anyone that will listen.
Republicans STOP Kissing up to the Democrats! Stop beginning every remark on political talk shows, in interviews etc. how so and so ( a Democrat, a Terrorcrat) is your friend. STOP pointing out his or her better qualities right before you disagree with them. STOP and STOP it NOW!
By doing this you weaken your argument, you cater to them in the worst way and it never is reciprocated!
On Wednesday ( Nov.30th,2005) Ann Coulter wrote about exactly what I have been talking about for years! Her column is in regards to Democratic Rep. John Murtha , when he called for the withdrawal of American troops in the middle of the war.
"Republicans immediately leapt to action by calling Murtha a war hero, a patriot and a great American."- Ann Coulter
She also mentions this
...."I've never heard a single liberal preface attacks on Oliver North with a recitation of North's magnificent service as a Marine. And unlike Murtha, who refuses to release his medical records showing he was entitled to his two Purple Hearts, we know what North did. (These Democrat military veterans are hardly shrinking violets when it comes to citing their medals, but they get awfully squeamish when pressed for details.) "
Please read her article below at the end of my rant because she is right on target!!!
I know all the excuse as to why the Republicans do this. Yep, so many times in fact that my ears get hot just thinking about it, hot with anger! OH yes, it is because they want to try to work together, they do not want to make enemies of the left in case they want their vote on something in the future. Sheesh! How lame is that??!! Pretty darn lame if you ask me. You know the I'll scratch your back if you scrath mine thang' ! Well guess what!!! The Democrats NEVER return the back scratching! Look how they have treated President Bush since he became President. They are still angry about the chad count from the first election. They call him Mr. and NEVER President!
The Republicans and I am including our President and VP on this one, they all begin their statements ahout Murtha with what a hero he was. Ladies and gentlemen freaken evil himself, HITLER, enlisted in the German army and saw four years of front-line service during which he was wounded several times and decorated for bravery twice. Now if you think this Wild Thing would sit still for someone referring to Hitler as a War Hero, as a good man because he did a swell job in the Military you have got to be kidding.
I am glad when a Terrocrat ( Democrat) does not like me. It is a compliment! It means I am on the right track and getting to them. I might sit here at my computer and cry because they might have my feelings hurt, but by golly I sure as heck don't pull back and rethink my next words to them. It makes me stronger then I was before. NOW that is what I want in my politicians. NOT appeasment, NOT surrender, and sure as hell NOT patting the enemy on the back and saying............." My friend so and so".............or " He is a good man, or she is a good women and has served this counrty but we just differ on some things." Can you imagine if our VP Cheney or President Bush would have lambasted Murtha and anyone else that spoke out about bringing our troops home now. Gave them hell for it and took a stand for our troops in no uncertain terms! I mean the President is their Commander in Chief, their leader just as he is our President! Words mean something and in politics they speak volumes as to how strong a person is and what they will tolerate!
"Tolerance is a virtue of a man without convictions." -G.K.Chesterton
Think about this, our men and women serving now have their lives on the line every day, every hour they are in danger with all those IED"s and insurgents our there. And when I hear a Republican politican and he or she can't be strong and take a stand for what is right it makes me sick to see such weakness. The Terrocrats have treated President Bush and VP Cheney as though they are in THEIR White House. They have treated them in word and deed as though Bush and Cheney and the houses being in the Republican majority are squatters.
Think about this too, how many of us worked hard toward getting Bush elected both times. How many?? LOTS! And I bet you had people attacking you too when you held a sign up for Bush or our troops, or posted on forums where liberals swormed like bees waiting to attack you. But we all kept on, kept the good fight and we did it as our part to take America back from the left. WE stood strong in the face of the enemy. OK, so once we got our people elected in the Senate, Congress and White House we should be able to sit back and watch THEM fight for us and for America and for our Military. Right? Right!
We like you! We really, really like you!

When Democratic Rep. John Murtha called for the withdrawal of American troops in the middle of the war, Republicans immediately leapt to action by calling Murtha a war hero, a patriot and a great American.
I haven't heard Republicans issue this many encomiums to one man since Ronald Reagan died. By now, Murtha has been transformed into the greatest warrior since Alexander the Great and is probably dating Jennifer Aniston.
In response to Murtha's demand for the "immediate withdrawal of American troops" – as the New York Times put it – President Bush called Murtha a "fine man, a good man" who served with "honor and distinction," who "is a strong supporter of the United States military." He said he knew Murtha's "decision to call for an immediate withdrawal of our troops ... was done in a careful and thoughtful way."
Vice President Dick Cheney called Murtha "a good man, a Marine, a patriot."
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said Murtha is "a fine man, I know him personally ... and it's perfectly proper to have a debate over these things, and have a public debate."
National Security Adviser Steve Hadley called in his praise for Murtha from South Korea, saying Murtha was "a veteran, a veteran congressman and a great leader in the Congress."
During the House debate on Murtha's insane proposal to withdraw troops in the middle of the war, Rep. Henry Hyde, R-Ill., said Murtha deserved an "A-plus as a truly great American," and Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa., said "none of us should think of questioning his motives or desires for American troops."
On the House floor, both Republicans and Democrats repeatedly gave Murtha rousing standing ovations. There was so much praise for Murtha that one of his Democratic colleagues asked him if he still had to attend Murtha's funeral.
What is this? Special Olympics for the Democrats? Can't Republicans disagree with a Democrat who demands that the U.S. surrender in the middle of a war without erecting monuments to him first? What would happen if a Democrat were to propose restoring Saddam Hussein to power? Is that Medal of Freedom territory?
I don't know what Republicans imagine they're getting out of all this love they keep throwing at Democrats. I've never heard a single liberal preface attacks on Oliver North with a recitation of North's magnificent service as a Marine. And unlike Murtha, who refuses to release his medical records showing he was entitled to his two Purple Hearts, we know what North did. (These Democrat military veterans are hardly shrinking violets when it comes to citing their medals, but they get awfully squeamish when pressed for details.)
We also know what Rep. Randy Cunningham, R-Calif., did to earn his medals. One of only two American Navy aces that the Vietnam War produced, Cunningham shot down five MiGs, three in one day, including a North Vietnamese pilot with 13 American kills. Cunningham never did something as insane as proposing that we withdraw troops in the middle of a war, but this week he did admit to taking bribes.
And yet, no Democrat breathed a word of Cunningham's unquestioned heroism before rushing to denounce him as "the latest example of the culture of corruption" – in the words of Rep. Nancy Pelosi.
Sen. Teddy Kennedy didn't issue a 20-minute soliloquy on what a wonderful man Judge Robert Bork was as a human being before attacking his judicial philosophy. Kennedy just laid into Bork like he was George Lincoln Rockwell.
Speaking of which, George Lincoln Rockwell, former head of the American Nazi Party, served in the military during World War II. Are we obligated to praise his war service before disputing his views?
CNN's Bill Schneider summarized the Republican love-fest for Murtha by saying that House Republicans "started calling him some very ugly names – cowardly, shameful, he wanted to cut and run, he wanted to surrender to the terrorists, emboldening the enemy." Are we all looking at the same "intelligence"?
The only Republican congressman who did not offer to have sex with John Murtha on the House floor was Jean Schmidt, R-Ohio. While debating Murtha's own proposal to withdraw American troops from Iraq in the middle of a war waged to depose a monstrous dictator who posed a threat to American national security, Schmidt made the indisputably true remark that Marines don't cut and run. (She was right! Murtha voted against his own proposal.)
Schmidt's precise words were: "I received a call from Col. Danny Bubp. He also asked me to send Congressman Murtha a message, that cowards cut and run, Marines never do." Bubp later said – pointlessly – that he was not calling Murtha a coward. Neither was Jean Schmidt. (These guys are very brave facing down the VC, but cower before the MSM.)
Now Schmidt is Emmanuel Goldstein, subjected to the liberals' Orwellian two-minutes hate, and not one Republican will defend her. If Republicans were one-tenth as rough with the congressman who wants to withdraw troops in the middle of a war as they are on a congresswoman who calls it cowardly to withdraw troops in the middle of a war, we might have a functioning Republican Party.

Just because someone served in the military doesn’t automatically make them a hero or above reproach. Remember, Tim McVeigh was a decorated combat veteran.
I cannot fathom how any career military person can be part of the Democrat Party; especially Rep. Murtha, a Vietnam Vet, who witnessed first hand how the Democrats treated those men returning from Vietnam When Clinton took over the White House it was said at his initial inauguration his people didn’t want military jets flying overhead. They didn’t want military guards in uniform at the White House.
