A few days ago, I posted the Problems on the Left Side of the Room.
Today, I am writing about the other side of the aisle. There are issues which I take exception to, over on the right and they are serious issues. They need to be dealt with.
The biggest problem on the right side of the room is: WE LET THEM. If you do not understand that statement, perhaps you should click the link above and see what I see as the problems on the left. Then you will understand the nature of what I see as the rights biggest problem is. WE LET THEM.
We let them use a double standard. Example: When a Democrat was censured for actually engaging in sexual relations with an adolescent subordinate, he thumbed his nose at decency, propriety, and legality, and continued to govern the rest of us who must follow the laws which he and the rest of our Congress pass. Similarly, former Congressman Mel Reynolds (D-Ill), who was convicted of corruption and of having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old campaign worker (and sentenced to seven years in prison), was pardoned in 2001 by outgoing President Bill Clinton.
In contrast, when Mark Foley, a Republican, was publicly confronted with his transgressions, he resigned his post immediately, amidst calls for a full investigation by his own party and his President. Again, he should receive help, and prosecution if such is warranted – but the response by House leadership this time around was far more decisive, and correct, than it was under opposition party control in 1983.
WE LET THEM use the double standard.
We let them avoid the dangers of the our Global War on Terror, because they have no stand on it. Their answer is "leave Iraq". Despite the NIE's statement stating that failure in Iraq would embolden the jihadists, and that our victory in Iraq would have fewer fighters carry on the fight elsewhere.
The Iraq conflict has become the .cause celebre. for jihadists, breeding a deep resentment of US involvement in the Muslim world and cultivating supporters for the global jihadist movement. Should jihadists leaving Iraq perceive themselves, and be perceived, to have failed, we judge fewer fighters will be inspired to carry on the fight.
WE LET THEM change the subject.
We let them run from the fight that they cannot win.
Our Dow has hit the all time high yesterday, how much focus did we have on that issue? Gas prices are lowering, almost daily and yet it barely gets a mention. We are at war and we are busy asking who knew what and when. What is wrong here folks? There is a FBI investigation going on, so lets get back to the important issues, the issues that will shape our world.
Trying to win an election by avoiding the realities in this world, by using double standards because politically, it "looks good" at the moment, isn't the way to win an election. That is assuming the American public is stupid and cannot see the game the left is trying to play. We are not. We see through it.
But we need to start focusing here. We are a country at war, does anyone remember that?
Once again Don Surber seems to be on the same wavelength. Great minds DO think alike!!!
Iowa Voice gives another example of Democrats and their avoidance issue.
[UPDATE] Today's actual NEWS: Gas Prices, Iran, North Korea, Afghan, Iraq.
Local Tribes in Iraq helping Iraq forces kill terrorists.
"The operation was called "fast reply." "The success of the operation was due to the cooperation of local Iraqi tribes," the head of the Diali police station Staff Lieutenant-General Ghassan Al-Bawi said.
He added that local tribes had killed 11 foreign fighters including nine Syrians, one Saudi and one Sudanese.
This support from local tribes took place for the second time, the first time had taken place in Anbar, West of Baghdad.
Meanwhile, Sheikh Abdel-Sattar Al-Rishawi, one of the tribal elders in Anbar, said the local tribes had succeeded in purging the coastal road linking Iraq to Syria."
