"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Rangel and Kerry Comedy Hour

I've just got a couple things to say about these two clueless non-entities.

Charlie Rangel, Congressman 15th Congressional District has previously called for reinstating the draft back in 2003, "Rangel Introduces Bill to Re-instate the Draft." Rangel's logic (supposedly) now as well as then in his words according to CNN is:

"There's no question in my mind that this president and this administration would never have invaded Iraq, especially on the flimsy evidence that was presented to the Congress, if indeed we had a draft, and members of Congress and the administration thought that their kids from their communities would be placed in harm's way."
Nice one and quite a few words too. My feeling as I'm sure is the same as many others is that this has not one iota to do with his stated reasoning. Charlie Rangel wants the draft to get the country pissed about being forced into the military via a draft. Who would be the bad guy then? Why George Bush of course. If any of the Democrats spoke honestly, they would not have had the results they did this November.

John Kerry? Kerry visited Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace this past Sunday; First question:

WALLACE: Speaking to a former hockey player, have you been in the penalty box the last few weeks? Did Democratic leaders say to you that you were becoming a distraction in the final week before the election and that you should sit down?

KERRY: You know, I would differ a little with the characterization you gave. Look, first of all, obviously, it was a bad joke, and I apologized for it. And we moved on, and we should move on......

.....Now we move on. You just had the news a moment ago, people are dead in Iraq. We have a terrible, unbelievable morass over there that's going to require enormous leadership. We Democrats are excited about what we've won, which is an opportunity to govern and help lead the country in the right direction. That's what I'm looking at.

"We moved on....move on...."

John Kerry hasn't moved on since 1970
