I love when Democrats do things like this… It is just makes a few thousand more Republican voters.
Washington, DC, Dec. 7 (UPI) — The remembrance of Japan’s 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor took on partisan political spin Tuesday with a Democrat leader using it to attack House Republicans.
Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe, in a special Pearl Harbor Day statement, said national unity 63 years ago enabled Americans to go forward and defeat the country’s enemies, but the same kind of unity needed now was being undermined by Republican disagreements over provisions of the yet-to-be-voted on intelligence reform bill.
“While we as a nation are united in this fight, there are clearly deep divisions within the Republican Party, divisions that are impeding our fight against terrorism,” he said.
“Moving forward, it is my sincere hope that the Republicans running Washington will stop playing their political games and start fighting for the American people, just as our honored veterans did 63 years ago.”
So much irony, so little time…
This from the same party who, after they got their hats handed to them in 2002, came out publicly and said the reason they lost is that they were supporting Republicans too much after 9/11 and that they, AS A POLITICAL STRATEGY had decided to oppose the war in Iraq.
Not to mention DUH! it is just blindingly moronic to say “Those stupid republicans aren’t bringing us together.”
This from the people who for over a year used any bad news we had in Iraq for political gain.
Sigh… So much irony, so little time…
