GOP's Firing Back

The investor's business daily has a great article about Republicans firing back at democrats and pointing out that the left has much more to worry about when playing the scandal game.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., gave it to his possible 2008 presidential foe, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., after she blamed North Korea's nuclear test on the Bush administration.

McCain pointed out that "every single time the Clinton administration warned the Koreans not to do something — not to kick out the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) inspectors, not to remove the fuel rods from their reactor — they did it. And they were rewarded every single time by the Clinton administration with further talks."

Moderate Rep. Christopher Shays, R-Conn., often sounds more like a Democrat than a Republican, but after his Democratic challenger, Diane Farrell, called for House Speaker Denny Hastert of Illinois to resign, Shays came out swinging.

He noted that "the speaker didn't go over a bridge and leave a young person in the water and then hold a press conference the next day." Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., who did just that at Chappaquiddick in 1969, has campaigned for Farrell.

It's also encouraging that Republicans know that Americans care more about what was in Sandy Berger's pants than Foley's sleazy private life. Duncan Hunter, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, and James Sensenbrenner, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, have called for a probe of Bill Clinton's national security adviser.

Remember, the race isn't over until election day, and I am beginning to think that the republicans may just walk all over the deomcrats once again.
