Liberals Demand Rove Quit Telling The Truth About Them

Karl Rove gets it:

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,"

Of course this put the most whiny member of the Senate, Chucky Schumer into a tailspin:

"The one thing New York has had since Sept. 11 is unity," said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. "To inject politics into this and to defame a large number of people" is outrageous, he said. "It's not what New York and America is all about."

"Senator Unity" has a short memory. He forgot when he was leading Democrats trying to tear down Bush over the infamous Presidential Daily Briefing:

After Rice's testimony, Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York criticized the Bush administration for not acknowledging what he described as mistakes.

"Unfortunately, we did not hear from Dr. Rice three important words: 'We made mistakes.' Of course we made mistakes," Schumer said.

"This administration made mistakes, the previous administration made mistakes. But the inability of this administration and of the national security adviser to admit that mistakes were made makes us fear that we will make future mistakes."

So much for not making 9/11 political. What really has Senator Unity hacked off is that Rove told the truth about him. And sometimes, the truth hurts.
