Karl Rove Attacks Democrats-What He Would Have Said If He Was Truthful

What Rove, divisive as usual, said:

"Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers," Mr. Rove, the senior political adviser to President Bush, said at a fund-raiser in Midtown for the Conservative Party of New York State."

There is no low cesspool to which Rove and the Bush administration will not sink. Shame on the Bush administration for not only allowing this pathetic, divisive man to be a spokesman but to defend his remarks. Especially at a time when the country was unified behind the tragedy of 911 and wanted to see justice done is it pathetic for him to use 911 as an opportunity to attempt to denigrate liberals.

Left Coaster

Liberals saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war against the real enemy (Al Qaeda); neo-conservatives such as myself first slept soundly at the wheel and let 9/11 happen. After we saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks, we realized we had to lie repeatedly to cover up our incompetence. To ensure that the country would never be safe again (so that we can exploit the media's brown-nosers who portray us as strong on national security even though the truth is exactly the opposite) we decided to focus on the wrong enemy using a pack of lies and sent our troops to battle. After all, we are far too chicken to risk our own lives on anything to do with saving America. Unlike liberals who wanted to attack the enemy and hold them accountable, we believed there needs to be some understanding for our real attackers - so we diverted our military to fight someone who did not attack us thereby allowing our real attacker to go free, while issuing chickenhawk-cowboy pronouncements about him being wanted "dead or alive".
...
I don't know about you, but moderation and restraint is what I really felt when I watched the twin towers crumble to the ground, a side of the Pentagon destroyed, and almost 3,000 of our fellow citizens perish in flames and rubble, for some of the most fervent thoughts among the most senior members of my Cabinet was to attack a person who had nothing to do with 9/11 - as the most appropriate response. It took some liberals (and maybe even some real conservatives), including some from across the ocean, to keep reminding us again and again (to no avail ultimately) who the real enemy was.
...
Has there ever been a more revealing moment this year? Let me just put this in fairly simple terms: Fox News now broadcasts the words of the various Republican shills for criminals to the whole world, condoning, excusing, minimizing or endorsing torture (something President Bush's military has prosecuted as a crime), thereby putting our troops in far greater danger. Why? Because, it's not enough that we led to the deaths of over 1700 troops and tens of thousands of civilians to fight a war on false pretenses - a war that we were always chickenshits to fight on our own. It's not enough that as a result we increased international terrorism to record highs and turned Iraq into the biggest breeding ground for terrorism in the process, thereby endangering America dramatically for at least a generation. No more needs to be said about the motives of us neoconservatives.

Thank you all for listening.

Next Step-Rove should apologize... or resign
