Democrats do not take Islamofascism threat seriously

Democrats do not take the threat to our civilization by Islamo-fascists seriously. They think defending our country against them is a job for cops, not the military. They want to try terrorists in our civilian courts as if they were petty criminals. And now, a senior advisor to Obama says the following:

In arguing that the country should back off a policy that causes too much pain, Danzig said, “”Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security.”

He read a section from the children’s book where Pooh Bear hurts himself going down the steps because he hasn’t stopped to think of another way.

During his address to the Center for New American Security, Danzig also said much can be learned about the motivations of terrorists by looking at, for instance, soccer fans who become absorbed by violence or even the Star Wars movies."

No, Danzig, these people are violent fascists who would kill every man, woman, and child in America if it would further their goal of domination of the world by Islam. The fact that you don't take this threat seriously, the fact that you are talking about this in terms of a children's book and sci-fi movie, indicates that you really, truly don't get it. Democrats just don't get it.

Obama Quits his Church - update

Obama and wife Michelle sent a letter Friday to Wright's successor, the Rev. Otis Moss III: "Our relations with Trinity have been strained by the divisive statements of Reverend Wright, which sharply conflict with our own views."

Apparently they only began to "sharply conflict with your own views" when you began to run for President, because you sat and listened to those "divisive statements" for 20 years and said nothing. You listened to those "divisise statements" for 20 years and did not quit, did not write any letters.

This is the same guy who wants to meet with enemy dictators with no preconditions; no, wait, of course we'll have preconditions; no, really, I meant no preconditions.

Like most Democrats, Obama will say anything to anyone at any time in order to get elected. It's only worked once in the past 30 years, let's hope we don't make it twice.
