Not Backing Down

I agree with Rush, Dick Cheney is my hero. He's not backing down regarding what he said about Nancy Pelosi, and he shouldn't. He's as right as he can be. Here is an excerpt from Rush's show regarding the interview:

CHENEY: I'm not sure what part of it is that Nancy disagreed with. She accused me of questioning her patriotism. I didn't question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment. Al-Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That's their fundamental underlying strategy. My statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that we will validate the strategy of Al-Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it. And I'm not backing down.

RUSH: My hero, not backing down. Nancy Pelosi, not referring to her as Speaker Pelosi, just referring to her as Nancy. You know, girl's gone hormonal. Next question from Jonathan Karl. Get this. “But hasn't our strategy been failing? Isn't that why the president has had to come out with a new strategy?”

CHENEY: A failed strategy. Let's see. We didn't fail when we got rid of Saddam. We didn't fail when we held elections. We didn't fail when we got a constitution written. They’re all success stories.

KARL: Didn't we fail when 3,000 American soldiers are all killed --

CHENEY: You wish there was never a casualty, Jonathan. Always a regret when you have casualties. But we are at war.

Apparently, Karl thinks we can defend ourselves without ever having a casualty. What a tremendously stupid statement. It's so refreshing to see someone like Dick Cheney, who says what he means and means what he says.

Then there are the liberals, who say what they mean and then, when confronted with their stupidity, pretend they meant something else. John Kerry's stuck in Iraq comment, John Edwards and Israel being the greatest threat to world peace, now George Soros is trying to weasel out of his comparing America to Nazi Germany. When these phonies actually lose their facade for a moment, forget themselves and tell the truth, then they have to backpedal and twist themselves into a pretzel trying to explain it away.

Anyway, thank you Mr. Vice President, for saying what more Republicans should be shouting from the rooftops. The Democrat plan is for America to lose and al-Qaeda to win. If we followed their plan, does anyone really doubt that al-Qaeda would be strengthened and emboldened? If we take off and turn Iraq over to them, do you think we'll be safer? The Democrats have to know this, yet on they go with their goal of defeat.

President Bush has hung tough against them in this fight, let's hope and pray he continues to do so.

JASmius adds: I'd question Crazy Nancy's patriotism, except that it's difficult to challenge something that's never existed.
