Democrats want to fight! No not in Iraq when it comes to defending this country Democrats are Dovish.
Democrats would rather switch than physically fight, which is good for Osama bin Laden because that is exactly what he said is the only thing to end his terrorist war against the United States.
According to bin Laden America needs to switch to Islam before he stops warring against us, maybe that’s the Democrat’s plan, withdrawn U.S. troops from Iraq and surrender to Islam when we are attacked on American soil again. After all that will stop the war! And stopping the war is the only thing that matters right war protestors?
In spite of that Democrats are PoliticalHawks. They love political violence; subpoenas, Congressional hearings, filibusters, bombastic anti-Republican press conferences, going after Karl Rove (Democrats love going after Karl Rove), Dissing the Bush Administration, hijacking the U.S. electoral process by accusing their opponents, the Republicans, of cheating or disfranchising Democratic voters and causing general electoral Chad chaos.
Democrats love the smell of political chaos in the morning probably just as much as Robert Duvall’s character Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kilgore in the movie Apocalypse Now loved the smell of napalm in the morning.
In fact a Democrat will go out of his or her way to set a political road bomb if they think that they can cause some political blowback for President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and Karl Rove. (Democrats love blowing up Karl Rove)
Politicalhawks soiling for a fight, setting dates for pulling out the troops from Iraq, they’re attaching pork amendments to the war budget in order to force a budget show down with the White house and holding Valerie Plame hearings even though it has been legally established that Ms. Plame was not a covert CIA agent (her cover had been blow by Russia years before) and no one in the White house leaked her name and finally they’re issuing subpoenas for White house aides to force a Constitutional show down with the White house. Democrats are Politicalhawks and litigation, politics, and Congressional hearings are their theatre of warfare. And they want to fight!
What’s so paradoxical about this whole scenario is the Republican Hawks who vote for war in Iraq and who talked about building Democracy in the Middle East have been reduced to Politicalchickens Republican don’t what to fight the Democrats they wish to be friends. The Republican theme is “Can’t we all just get along?” ala Rodney King.
Republicans didn’t fight to retain their majority control of the Senate and the House of Representatives. (Not really) Like politicalchickens many of them sided with the strong Democrat caucus. Even though Democrats unified against Republicans for the 16 years that Republicans had the majority in Congress, weak-kneed Republicans are still as fractured as they have always been. They’ve lost their majority because they were too chicken to unify and fired back when Democrats attacked the White house or their fellow Republican colleagues. Republicans are mavericks, independents and even liberals. Republicans are politicalchickens!
Republicans have been called chickenhawks for having a strong war stance though they have not actually been warriors themselves. Whether that is the case or not, the term is a political weapon used by Democrats to diminish Conservative credibility regarding the war.
The term politicalchickens hardly will be used by Democrats because it is not in their interest to do so, but as Democrats became increasingly Hawkish in their politics and as they increase their hold on the politics of this Nation it should became apparent to all that Democrats are Politicalhawks and Republicans are Politicalchickens.
The reality of it is, whether in war or politics Hawks usually carry the day. That is as it should be! My prediction is that the Hawks will win the Presidential election in 2008. It’s the survival of the fittest, who needs weak ass Leaders?
Let the chickens peck around in the farmyard. There is plenty of vermin that only a Hawk will be able to deal with. At this point it is not important to me what party affiliation the Hawk holds, my only question is can you fight… then let’s roll!
