The Greatest Ideological Divide of Our Time

Between shows yesterday, CBS aired it's "Free Speech" segment during the Katie Couric Show... At least she gave equal time to a Republican.


First up? Howard Dean, first-class ass--

"In five days, Americans have a choice to make between staying the course, or taking America in a new direction.

"That gives some Americans a reason to think about something they haven't done in a while: Vote for a Democrat.

"Democrats offer a new direction that begins with a commitment to honesty and fiscal responsibility. A new direction in Iraq that begins with a responsible, phased redeployment of our brave troops. A defense policy that is tough and smart and makes our nation safer by implementing the recommendations of the 9-11 Commission. A new direction for our economy that ends Republican deficit spending and ensures middle class tax fairness.

"We will make health care more affordable for all Americans, and fix the Medicare prescription drug program.

"There are many things we disagree with Republicans about. Iraq. Budget deficits. The response to Hurricane Katrina.

"But our deepest disagreements are with the Republican's attempts to divide America by putting their own interests ahead of the interests of our country.

"The most important promise we make is this: We will value your beliefs and your families as we restore America to its position of moral leadership throughout the world.

"Together, we will move America in a new direction."


Followed immediately by Jo Ann Davidson, relative unknown--

"My name is Jo Ann Davidson. I'm the Co-Chairman of the Republican National Committee. My pride and joy are my grandchildren – it is because of them that this election is so important to me and to all of us.

"I want to know that for my grandchildren, the 6.6 million jobs we've created over the last three years is just the beginning.

"I want to know that the five years since 9/11 without a terrorist attack is just the beginning.

"I want to know they will be safe, secure, and successful.

"So when Democrats vote to eliminate the Patriot Act and stop us from listening in on terrorist conversations, I worry about my grandchildren’s future.

"When Democrats say that no tax increase is off the table, I wonder about my grandchildren's future.

"When Nancy Pelosi, who wants to be Speaker of the House, says less than a year after 9/11 that she doesn’t believe we are at war...when John Kerry, the 2004 Democrat Presidential candidate, says our troops are uneducated... when Harry Reid calls our President a 'loser' and a 'liar,' I know that I don’t want those people deciding my grandchildren's future.

"That is why I know this election matters. And that is why I urge all Americans to vote Republican on November 7."



Howard Dean. Of all people, CBS chooses Howard Dean. Well, as to his statement:

1. A commitment to honesty and fiscal responsibility-- LOLOLOLOL!!! I don't know where to start with this one so, moving on...

2. A new direction in Iraq that begins with a responsible, phased redeployment of our brave troops-- Translation: Tuck tail between legs and run; a policy that is anything but 'responsible'. Note Howard's strategic use of the word 'Brave'... trying to drag the Party out of the coals Kerry's moment of truth landed them in.

3. ...[B]y implementing the recommendations of the 9-11 Commission-- After working to kill the patriot act? And crowing about it in front of the microphone? Exposing and condemning the terrorist foreign surveilance program? By condemning every policy Bush implemented to make this nation safe?

4. A new direction for our economy that ends Republican deficit spending and ensures middle class tax fairness-- a) new direction for our economy: reversing the current trend; up becomes down-great becomes poor. b) that ends Republican deficit spending: and makes it Democratic spending and far more wasteful. c) and ensures middle class tax fairness: by stealing from the rich, stifling investment and job growth, and depressing the overall economy.

5. We will make health care more affordable for all Americans-- moving us toward a system of socialized medicine... A system that works VERY well in Canada and Europe.

6. Fix the Medicare prescription drug program-- by making it far more expensive, adding untold billions to the deficit.

7. Our deepest disagreements are with the Republican's attempts to divide America by putting their own interests ahead of the interests of our country-- And this is where we enter Pot and Kettle territory. Democrats have been working diligently these last 6 years to divide America, putting their own interests above the interests of this nation, and creating an atmosphere of vitriolic hatred [Never in my lifetime has this nation been so divided'. Their biggest conceit is their steadfast belief that they work for the greater good of America. Their greatest conceit and greatest hypocrisy.


In closing, allow me to echo Jo Ann Davidson...

When Nancy Pelosi, who wants to be Speaker of the House, says less than a year after 9/11 that she doesn’t believe we are at war...when John Kerry, the 2004 Democrat Presidential candidate, says our troops are uneducated... when Harry Reid calls our President a 'loser' and a 'liar,' I know that I don’t want those people deciding my grandchildren's future.

That is why I know this election matters. And that is why I urge all Americans to vote Republican on November 7.

Dividing America? How about Clinton blaming Republicans for the Oklahoma City bombing? How about basing their political future on the hope that our country will lose the war? These people are scum. My grandfather was a New Deal Democrat- - do you think FDR would have politicized a war as completely as the current Democrats have? They want us to lose the war!

Thanks for the input, Estase. Perhaps the biggest hypocrisy of the Democratic Left is their heartfelt desire to see America lose this war, while claiming to love America, and caring about and supporting our troops... while insulting their intelligence.

Ask EL, Brooke. That "whatever" was me parroting back his last comment over at my place. "LOL!"
