And Another Thing...

To follow-up on my post below, have you noticed how the media has been nearly silent on the good retail news? Silent on the relatively smooth Thanksgiving travel weekend? Almost dead silent on the great news coming out of Iraq? The Leftist Media cannot bring themselves to report on the greatness of America in any story, large or small. They are so obviously in the Democrats' pocket that the stories now, when they can't deny that there is progress in Iraq, are about how the Democrats can save face after declaring failure in Iraq for months. Over at Rush's site, he has a great rundown, including this:

Here we go, a couple of Rush See, I Told You So's. The New York Times today, Patrick Healy: "'As Democrats See Security Gains in Iraq, Tone Shifts.' As violence declines in Baghdad, the leading Democratic presidential candidates are undertaking a new and challenging balancing act on Iraq: acknowledging that success, trying to shift the focus to the lack of political progress there, and highlighting more domestic concerns like health care and the economy." Told you. I told you, the elections are about the future. They're not going to be about the Iraq war. The future of the country is what's going to be the dominant issue in the presidential race next year. But here's a piece in the New York Times, what are the Democrats going to do to massage this? You notice every piece, every Drive-By story is not about: "Boy, Democrats blew it, Democrats wrong, Democrats unqualified, Democrats have demonstrated that they can't be trusted, Democrats have demonstrated X, Y, Z," all the things I just went through. No, it's, what do the Democrats have to do now? It's a delicate balancing act. The Democrats have to find some way of saying they were right when they were wrong and saying Bush was wrong when he was right and then change the subject after that.

And on and on it goes. Nothing the the Democrats do or the media reports on is in order to draw attention to the greatness of our nation or promote our national security. It all comes down to one thing - power.

If the notion of Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama as Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces doesn't send a chill down your spine, there's something seriously wrong with you.
