Rove Speech Puts Liberal Panties in a Bunch

Bush adviser Karl Rove, speaking in New York City yesterday, outraged Democrats by telling the truth as he sees it about liberals' words and actions since the 9/11 attacks. From The New York Times:
"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."
Rove is correct; the sickening blame-America-for-the-attacks meme was well-established just a few weeks after the attacks, when revolting liberal fossil Holland "I'm not really a judge but I play one on TV" Taylor smarmily opined on Politically Incorrect that the 9/11 attacks were just a case of spanking a spoiled child gone too far. In other words, we deserved it, but the hijackers just overdid things a bit. The audience applauded appreciatively at Taylor's sophomoric reasoning. It's doubtful that the applause came from conservatives.

From Newsday we hear that:
Rove also denounced Sen. Dick Durbin's comments comparing interrogation at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp to the methods of Nazis and other repressive regimes. He said the statements have been broadcast throughout the Middle East, putting American troops in greater danger. Durbin has since apologized for the remarks.

"No more needs to be said about the motives of liberals," Rove said.
I disagree with Rove here, I think a lot more needs to be said about the motivations of liberals. It needs to be said and repeated until it sinks through a collective consciousness dulled by exposure to biased mainstream media news sources. Remember, Durbin didn't apologize for what he said. He apologized if anyone was offended by what he said.

And finally, from San Francisco Chronicle, news of the Democrats' devastating response to Rove's simple truths:
Schumer said Democrats were drafting a letter asking Rove to retract his remarks. Jim Manley, spokesman for Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., also called on President Bush to "immediately repudiate Karl Rove's offensive and outrageous comments."
A sharply worded letter, oh my! that'll show him. What a bunch of pathetic pantywaists and nancy boys.
