This is the type of logic we can expect from Democrats, and one more example why we need to work hard to ensure a Democrat doesn’t get into the White House:
Democratic New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, a former U.S. ambassador to
the United Nations, called on President Bush to force Musharraf to step
down. Until then, Richardson said the U.S. must suspend military aid to
the Pakistani government.
“A leader has died, but democracy must live. The United States
government cannot stand by and allow Pakistan’s return to democracy to
be derailed or delayed by violence,” Richardson said.
Calling on Bush to force Musharraf out? Um, hello? Does the man not understand our enemy has been trying to do just that for quite some time. So now, according to this Democrat, we should stand tall beside al-Qaeda and help to remove him from power.
This is the mindset of these people. They apparently have no ability to think further in the future then a few days. Jimmy Carter was a-ok with letting the Shah fall in Iran because, well, he wasn’t nice enough. Look how that has turned out for the world. Now Richardson would force Musharraf out of Pakistan, which would install his last rival, Sharif. A fanatical Islam fanboi.
Now that would work wonders for the war on terror…../sarcasm.
In effect, Richardson wants to kick a jihadist-infested country with
nuclear weapons that’s teetering on the edge of absolute chaos over
that edge. For this clumsy effort to distinguish himself from the
presidential pack, Richardson wins Campaign ’08’s “Better to remain
silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt”
Then on our side of the aisle we have Huckabee apologizing for the United States regarding the assassination:
Mike Huckabee strode out to the strains of “Right Now” by Van Halen and
immediately addressed the Bhutto situation, expressing “our sincere
concern and apologies for what has happened in Pakistan.”
Way to go Mike! You sound just like Jimmy Carter….
