(D)ypocrisy 101

Senator Daniel Inouye - (D) Hawaii, has voiced desent against the President. This in response to the latest Republican ad which highlights various Democrat comments against the war and the troops.

"As a Veteran of World War II, I know what it’s like to fight a war and put your life on the line every day. I also know what it takes to win a war, and I know that politics and an attack machine like the President’s plays no part in it. The Republican Party’s latest ad is a shameful and disgusting attempt to distract the American people from the problems in Iraq. It may improve the President’s political fortunes, but the American people and our troops will pay the price. I hope that President Bush realizes how shameful it is to play politics when what we really need is leadership, and that he will direct his Party to take down this ad immediately."

1. Mr. Inouye deserves all the respect he earned as a WWII veteran and a medal of honor recipient.

2. The President, Mr. Inouye, does not control the Republican National Comittee anymore than you control the Democratic National Committee and their comments and ads.

3. Mr. Inouye, you use the words "shameful" and "disgusting" in regards to the ad, but not against your fellow democrats for saying the things that can only be described as "shameful", "disgusting", "a play on politics", "American people and our troops will pay the price", etc.

4. Mr. Inouye, you say "I know what it’s like to fight a war and put your life on the line every day. I also know what it takes to win a war", but I ask you ... is comments like the following that you are defending your stragedy?

* "the idea that we're going to win the war in Iraq is an idea which is just plain wrong," - Democratic National Chairman Howard Dean

* "And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of the Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the - of- the historical customs, religious customs. Whether you like it or not ..." - John Kerry on Face The Nation - (D) Mass

* "The U.S. cannot accomplish anything further in Iraq militarily. It is time to bring them home," - (D) John Murtha

* "So there’s no specific timeframe but I would say the withdrawal ought to start now, right after the elections December 15th." - (D) Barbara Boxer


"Shameful", "Disgusting", ""a play on politics", "American people and our troops will pay the price"!
