Leading Democrats must not like what they see in the Mirror

Because, all Karl Rove did was tell them exactly what they believe-in or have been implying unapologetically to the American people for some time now:

Karl Rove came to the heart of Manhattan last night to rhapsodize about the decline of liberalism in politics, saying Democrats responded weakly to Sept. 11 and had placed American troops in greater danger by criticizing their actions.

"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.

Citing calls by progressive groups to respond carefully to the attacks, Mr. Rove said to the applause of several hundred audience members, "I don't know about you, but moderation and restraint is not what I 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." ...

Mr. Rove also said American armed forces overseas were in more jeopardy as a result of remarks last week by Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, who compared American mistreatment of detainees to the acts of "Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime - Pol Pot or others."

"Has there ever been a more revealing moment this year?" Mr. Rove asked. "Let me just put this in fairly simple terms: Al Jazeera now broadcasts the words of Senator Durbin to the Mideast, certainly putting our troops in greater danger. No more needs to be said about the motives of liberals."

What did Karl Rove do? Seriously, comb over his comments. He may not have used the most flowery of language, and may have referred to the Democrat belief system in a negative tone, but he was at A REPUBLICAN FUNDRAISER! What is he suppose to say! That all Democrats aren't white christians? Is that appropriate for a fundraiser - stereotypes? I mean, you don't even have to apologize for something like that. But to actually provide one's own opinion on the opposition's belief system - that is OFFENSIVE! All Karl Rove was saying is: "this is what the Democrats believe - and I believe it is wrong." GAWD, does he not have a conscience! Please, please Karl, WON'T YOU PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN?!

Well, most of the usual suspects have taken offense to what they see in the mirror. And of course, it is never their own fault.

Democrats are demanding that White House adviser Karl Rove immediately retract and apologize for comments that liberals responded to the Sept. 11 terrorist strikes by wanting to "prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers." ...

Schumer said Democrats were drafting a letter asking Rove to retract his remarks. Jim Manley, spokesman for Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., also called on President Bush to "immediately repudiate Karl Rove's offensive and outrageous comments."

Captain's Quarter's makes a good point in his analysis: isn't this the same Senator Harry Reid who called President Bush a loser and a liar, and would only apologize for the loser part?

If the Democrats aren't for treating the War on Terror as a police matter, and putting terrorist-prisoner rights #1 on their agenda, then let's see it. It would be great if America would unite for this barely begun battle. Unfortunately, it is the Democrats who are doing everything they can to make sure that we do not fight this War like a War.
