September 11th and the Past

I had a nice post all written up about the failures of the Democrats in general and Clinton in particular with regards to terrorism, bin Laden, and security. I've deleted it. One, it's old news, and it's been hashed, rehashed, and gone over way too often. Two, all the finger pointing from years ago doesn't mean squat when it comes to the terrorist appeasing tactics of the Democrats today.

Think about it: What good does pointing out past failures do us when the present day Democrats are fighting against every terror-fighting tactic we can come up with? Think of the NSA wiretapping programs. That program has been credited with stopping terror attacks at home and abroad, and the Democrats torpedoed it as fast as they could. And they did it by leaking the information to the New York Slimes. Yay Democrats. Thanks for disabling a working program. Tell me again how you would fight terrorists? Oh, that's right, you WOULDN'T. But from what we see today, they really don't have a problem with snooping and illegal activity per se. It's only the targets that they have a problem with. You see, snooping on terrorists is bad. Hacking into a computer to embarass a Republican is perfectly OK in their book.

The campaign of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's Democratic rival acknowledged Tuesday that it downloaded - and leaked to the media - a recording of a private meeting in which the governor described a Hispanic legislator as having a "very hot" personality.

Of course, the Dimocrats are saying they didn't do anything wrong. Of course, they're lying. As usual.

Schwarzenegger spokesman Adam Mendelsohn said someone would have had to snoop to find the audio file.

"The file that was leaked to the Los Angeles Times was in a private area of the governor's server not accessible to the public without manipulation of information," he said.

Schwarzenegger's legal affairs secretary, Andrea Lynn Hoch, said the sound file was stored in a password-protected area. She said she forwarded the Internet Protocol address used to download the file to the California Highway Patrol, which is investigating.

So remember, according to the Dimocrats, snooping on terrorists is bad, but snooping on Republicans is good. And this is the polical party who says they're strong on national security? Riiiiiiiiiiiiiight.
